What You Can Expect

Ocho Rios Dolphin Encounter Program

Ocho Rios Dolphin Encounter

The Dolphin Cove Jungle trails meander through dense tropical foliage interspersed with indigenous animals and birds in their natural habitat. Iguanas, snakes and other reptiles are fed as intriguing stories are narrated by the experienced guides. Birds of the Caribbean and South America - macaws and parrots, entertain you and allow you to touch and be photographed with them. Their stunning beauty and antics are sure to delight you! Stingrays, eels, fish and turtles are but a few of the fascinating sea creatures you will see as the trail passes the seaside lagoon. Hear the beat of the Jungle Drums as they syncopate Caribbean rhythms. Then meet Jah Michael, the resident craftsman, as he weaves indigenous palm fronds into dolphin welcome mats.

Finally, enjoy a taste of Jamaica from a fruit-lady's cart located along the Jungle Trail. Fresh pineapple, coconut, citrus or other tasty Jamaican fruits are available to try.

Please allow a minimum of 3 hours at Dolphin Cove at Treasure Reef in order to enjoy the park and facilities.

Please Note:

  • Infants under 6 years old may touch the dolphins FREE of cost with a paying adult. However, they must be held by the paying adult whilst touching the dolphin

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!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2013

Exciting and fun. The Dolphins really are cool mammals

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2013

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.
