My wife and I had an amazing day at dolphin cove for her birthday. We had pre-booked online but was offered a great deal to upgrade to the ultimate package. We started with the Dolphins and spent about 45 minutes in the water with a small group (approx 10 people all in). We all get plenty of time with time... More

This place is a must if you have kids or are just young at heart. From the moment you walk in until you depart everyone is so warm and make you feel so welcome, even if you are only able to sit and watch because of back issues such as I have. It is pricey but we'll worth the experience... More

The trainers are entertaining and attentive. Those Dolphins are the true stars of the Jamaica. Amazingly trained, and so cute. We got to hold one, pet one, and they even propelled us through the water and let us ride on their Dorsel fin. Pricey to get pictures for but I guess it's worth it to have the memories of the...

Best excursion to do in Negril, it is the most expensive but definitely more than worth the money. The photo packages for 2 people all of your photos on a CD are priced at $110 with tax but for professional photos with great, varied snaps of you with dolphins the price is amazing if you compare this to getting a...

If you are traveling here from Montego Bay be sure to include Dunns River, its not too much more and they are only five minutes apart, it will take most of your day but well worth it!
