Attraction details
Owner description: This magnificent property has a natural cove which is surrounded by 5 acres of lush tropical rain forest. Visitors have the opportunity to interact and "Swim With" dolphins, enjoying the thrill and love of these amazing lovable animals. Visitors can also swim with, hold, feed and learn about the evolutionary secrets of the Caribbean sharks. Visitors can capture their dream of being a dolphin trainer by taking the challenge of being "Sea Keeper" for the day. Voted as Jamaica's Number One Attraction for a reason. Come for the day, for memories of a lifetime.

This place is a total rip off!!!   They will no longer allow you to use your own camera to capture your own memories.. you now have to buy their photos... starting price, $75.00 for 1 and then the price goes up from there.   Then, only get about 5 minutes with the dolphins..  Not worth it.  DO YOURSELF A FAVOR... Don't go here!!

We did something similar in Mexico and go way more for the money. Kids loved it , also snorkeling with the rays and the zoo.
Overall experience good but too expensive, especially the pictures taken by the photographers.

A must visit attraction in Jamaica. Had fun swimming with the dolphins, playing with the birds and on the boat ride. There's no doubt about going back for another visit....

Swimming was wonderful, and the dolphin trainer was wonderful. We wanted pictures, but they were $300 for our group! The process of working with the person selling the photos was uncomfortable, but we finally did purchase photos to remember the event.

This is was 100 times better than swimming with the dolphins at Atlantis in the Bahamas. Pretty much from the moment we put our life jackets on, we were in the water with the dolphins. The trainers were excellent and flexible enough to accommodate several in our group that were very nervous. I think we were only supposed to be there for 45 minutes, but am pretty sure it was more like 75.
