Didn't have much contact with Viator just purchased the Swim Tickets through them.
The staff at Dolphin Cove are amazing. So helpful when my husband became ill and was not able to swim, They made special arrangement for him to experience the dolphins. A great place to visit.
Dolphin cove was brilliant. We got upgraded to the ultimate swim as we had brought the dolphin swim it was a free upgrade and WOW was I pleased. 2 dolphins in a group of six people it was amazing. The trainers were also fantastic very encouraging as I was a bit nervous but they out me straight at ease. Would definitely recommend every one do this trip.
It was awesome! My bf and I went on a cruise and bought this package and it was so much cheeper. stay all day because there is so much to do after the dolphin tour.
The swim with the Dolphins was a must for my sons and his friends. They found the swim delightful and got some lovely pictures and videos of their experience. It's by no means dangerous as life jackets are provided and the Dolphins are are properly trained. Don't miss this if you visit Ocho Rios.
We had the most fantastic time at Dolphin Cove. It is must for everyone that visits Jamaica. We booked the Dolphin Swim with an upgrade to the Ultimate Swim, if you go to Dolphin Cove the Ultimate Swim cannot be beaten.
Our only gripe is we wish we had been told about all the other activities onsite. We could have spent the whole day there. Although the photos and DVD are expensive they are worth every penny.
AMAZING!! So much fun! Boat rides, snorkeling and swimming with stingray were also available. This was the best day of our trip.
We had a free upgrade to the Swim With program (2 dolphins). Since we were with 2 instead of 1, we got to do a dorsal fin pull and they also pushed us up in the air from out of the water. It was absolutely incredible! Worth every penny. I recommend getting email addresses from people in your group before you go, though, so you can share the group pictures online when you go home =) They're $80!!!! This was a fantastic experience and I would recommend it to anyone who likes animals. The only downside is how they hound you for tips.. I'm more likely to tip more if it's not asked for 8 million times.
This was a birthday present for my wife - she loved it! Make sure you have transportation arranged for.
Fantastic experience, exactly what we were hoping for and more. Would love to do again but for longer next time, didn't want to get out of the water!!!
Well first the positives... Wonderful time at Dolphin Cove. So many things to do. Well worth the money. Now for the negative. We had booked this attraction through a different vendor and had problems getting it confirmed. We spent a lot of time on the phone with both the vendor and Dolphin Cove. Finally gave up and canceled. This was something we really wanted to do so we then booked through Viator. Same problems. Dolphin Cove said they couldn't find our reservations. Took time but we finally got it straightened out. Dolphin Cove does not seem to be very well organized when it comes to reservations. They added a lot of stress to our vacation.
we all had a great time ,the dolphin encounter was really well organised & it was also a nice suprise to find food & drinks were included
If you go to Ocho Rios you must do the Dolphin Encounter. Very cool experience! Snorkeling with the stingrays was also very fun and it's included.
I would do this a million times again. Our guide was awesome. I strongly suggest getting the encounter and not the touch option. You get much more for your money.
Love it!! Would do again. Best deal when you order it on Viator.
Fun place. Lots to do there and great value for the money. Shopped around and Viator was the best deal
The Dolphin Swim was great and so was the the Dolphin Cove for the most part. My only complaints would be the outrageous prices for buying photos (since you are not allowed to take your own) and the Cove attractions being a little run down (like the nature walk).
Awesome experience would highly recommend it! We saved about 200 dollars booking this way....
My husband and I went to the Dolphin Encounter and enjoyed it very much. The enounter itself was great. We had fun and the trainers were very entertaining and fun. Now the few things that I would say that were not good, were Viator told us the pickup and return were part of the package and they are not. We didnt have to pay but its not. We did not get our DVD which if you order the DVD and the photo CD they are 2 seperate disc and ours got left. Its was a huge ordeal and $38 worth of phone charges to get it. The DVD and pics are VERY expensive. Ours ran $120 + tax. The park itself is okay but not what its made out to be as far as the other part that you walk through. It is fun and theres lots to do overall its good and we will go back but now we know what to do since they aren't clear that you pick up pics and DVD in TWO ENTIRELY DIFFERENT AREAS!:)
