Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Ocho Rios Dolphin Encounter Program. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
The only bad thing about this experience that I can say is that I regret not doing the full program. I'm not a great swimmer and thought that there would be no life jackets! I was wrong! Loved it but next time I will be doing the ultimate swim experience!
Despite the rain, I loved this and have watched the ultimate swim video several times trying to relive the experience. I would recommend allowing at least five hours as there is so much to do and see. I only allowed for four hours and that is the only thing I regret about this experience. Wonderful!
Very professional and accommodating staff. Our group had a wonderful time and it was well worth the money spent.
The Dolphin encounter was quite exciting - touching it, getting her (Mitsy) to sing, dance. It was a great experience and I would recommend it. Not to forget the discounted rate offered by Viator.
We had a great time a dolphin cove. Our children really enjoyed swimming with the dolphins and snorkeling. We also got a great deal from Viator. No issues... I will add the transfers to and from your hotel are not included so you would either need to get a cab or arrange for Dolphn Cove transfers (cab might be less restricting and cheaper). If you use Dolphin cove transfers they will tell you what time you have to be ready for the bus and you might feel rushed through the park as there is lots to do. We felt very rushed.
absolutely amazing! Such a wonderful experience...much more than I expected! The Dolphins are wonderful- they did all kinds of tricks for us- we did the belly swim and kiss! I was smiling ear-to-ear the whole time! SOOO glad I did this =)
I purchased this program and had a free upgrade to the Dolphin Encounter - this was an amazing experience which I would definitely recommend! I am not sure whether I would have been happy to pay the usual price for this, but as I only paid half the usual price. I felt as though I had my moneys worth.
We got the free upgrade to the encounter program as we went before March 31st. Perfect timing as it was soooo worth it. My 8 year old daughter thought it was so amazing. Not only super fun but very educational too. The trainers there are great with kids and adults and lots of laughs. I would do it again in a heartbeat. It is so worth the money. If you have the chance, don't pass it up. INCREDIBLE.

This is a great way to spend the day in Ocho Rios! The park itself has a lot to offer. Not only did I get to touch the dolphins, I also got to hold a giant iguana, wrap a snake around my shoulders and was tongue kissed by a macaw! (that part wasn't so great!)
Nice, but with minimun swiming you can do the swiming with dolphins, and it's much nicer. Don't wast much time in the park, there is not much to do.
Outstanding time. Grand children really enjoyed the swim while the younger ones loved the touch program. We did by all 4 dvd's photos and videos of both programs. Little disappointing in the amount of time to process.
Meeting, touching and kissing the dolphin was out of this world. The next time I visit Jamaica, I will upgrade to swimming with the dolphins. However I believe tour operator needs to expand in other areas. The shark show was very disappointing but overall I will return.
