Travel Guide

Come Swin with the Dolphins!!!

Dolphin Cove is a family adventure where you can meet exciting animals and experience swimming and playing with dolphins. It adjoins Dunn’s River Falls and is a natural cove surrounded by lush tropical rain forest.

You can have an extraordinary adventure at Dolphin Cove as you enter a natural cove to swim, play and touch the beautiful bottlenose dolphins. There is a brief orientation before the trainers take you to meet the dolphins.

You will get to know the animals and learn about their behavior and how their trainers communicate with them by “hand signals”. Then be able to play, touch, get kissed, and perhaps a get a push around the cove.

You can take a walk through the natural rain forest and tropical gardens and see rivers and waterfalls, view animals and birds indigenous to the tropics. See sharks in their own environment, or just wander and explore.

You can relax on a white sandy beach and enjoy the cool Caribbean breeze, snooze in a hammock and taste Jamaica’s finest grilled cuisine. Snorkel and swim under the hidden waterfall or kayak on the sea.

Dolphin Cove gives you the opportunity to learn more about Jamaica’s culture.
