This is the 3rd time I have been here. This place is educational, informative & exciting. The people who work here love what they do and it shows. They made us feel comfortable, safe and at ease with the dolphins (& Sea Lions). The dolphins are curious, playful and very intelligent. FYI; Dolphin Cove was renamed Dolphin Plus Bayside. Same...

Even if you do not want to swim with the dolphins, this is the place to observe the activities of the dolphins with their trainers and also with the spectators, who can swim with them and experience their skills and be a part of the show.

These dolphins are happy and loved by the caretakers and trainers. I am certain it was the dolphins training us! Grateful for the experience to be with these majestic and intelligent mammals! January 2017

My daughter came here on a Make-a-Wish trip and they went all out for her. She wanted to swim with dolphins and she did that and much more -- she was practically a junior dolphin trainer for two days! High fives to the staff for their kindness, care, and enthusiasm! This trip was unforgettable.

I swam with my two kids with the Dolphins. They loved it and will never forget it and for that I'm grateful. I on the other hand, was sad afterwards. I have always wanted to swim with dolphins. However, I disagree with keeping them captive just for entertainment purposes. When I read that this place is about research I talked... More

I am from Czech and I was really looking... More

We didn't get signed up in time for the swims (they had space available the next day, but we were to be leaving then), but we were able to get Dolphin Kisses! What a treat! We have never been so close to these beautiful creatures before! My 25 year old son and I thought it was pretty cool that we... More

My wife and I did the structured swim with the dolphins and that was well worth the price...although the actual time in the water was no more than 20 minutes. We coupled that event with the sea lion experience and that one wasn't all that great. There are two sea lions and they haven't been there that long and were... More

Ed got to swim with the Dolphins. We got to see baby dolphins while there. The scenery was beautiful. The drive from Orlando was awesome. I am so glad we got this opportunity.
