Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Ultimate Swim Dolphin Program in Ocho Rios. 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.
This was really neat, I wish we could have had a little more one on one time with the dolphins for the price we paid. But realistically they had many "tourists" to accommodate and it offered a lot for the number of people that they were trying to move through. The dolphins are so smart and well trained, I figure the money was well spent to take care of them and enlighten the general public. I plan to do this again and take my kids!
swimming with the dolphins was so much fun!!!!!!!!!!!definitely go for this tour even though is more expensive than the others!!!!! its an amazing experience and you spend time with this beautiful animals kissing you, hold you up with their noses and taking you a small ride holding their fines!!!!!!just awesome and worth any penny!!!!! a little advise: the photos are overpriced 108 dollars including all photos of the group and videos!!!! bring a lap top with you or share email with the persons in the group, buy together the dvd, split the money, share the photos!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This was a great time and the grounds are absolutely beautiful! Highly recommend this activity but be give yourself most of the day to spend here because there is so much to do and a lot is included in this package. Be prepared to buy pictures because cameras are not allowed in the dolphin pools and your definitely going to want these pictures!
We had a great time. The dolphins were well trained. My 10 and 12 years old kids love it. We did snorkeling, Dunn's River tour, jetski, horseback riding, ... but swimming with dolphins is our favorite. I was so lucky that I found a great discount on Viator. I had no problem using the voucher.
This was an amazing trip and something that you MUST do. What was most amazing is that most of the people in my group paid full price of $250 for each person and we paid the Viator price. This is a must, however, be prepared for a 2.5 hour bus ride each way if your staying in Montego Bay. Buy the package for $99 which includes a movie of your group and a DVD with all of the pictures. Do not pay individually for pictures as you can take the DVD to Walgreens or CVS and get pictures made. That was a suggestion from our very nice tour guide Anita. Make sure to budget the $99 for the DVD as it is a must have. There were also a group of people who swam with the sharks, yikes! They have give aways if you answer the right questions (adult dolphins have 97 teeth and babies have 76) and an awesome gift shop. A lot of people tried to do both Treasure Island and Dunns River the same day but to me that was too much, plus while we were there Dunns River was closed due to a tree falling.
This was a family excursion with my Son and my husband. We loved this excursion. We booked this excursion and the travel independent of one another.
The Dolphin experience itself was amazing and very well organized. It began on time and was everything that was promised. A truly memorable experience with Dolphins.
Really fun experience. The pics are priceless! Would do this again!!!
we had a wonderful time on this tour, I was so happy with the dolphin encounter. Had a blast! A must do if you visit Jamaica.
This was really worth the money!
The kids loved interacting with the dolphins. The cost is the same as at the site but it was worth paying in advance to get the guarantee.
This was my second time swimming with the dolphins and my fiance's first. My first time was in Cozumel however I liked the scene here in Jamaica better and our guide was hilarious! I would definitely recommend this to others. Even though it is a little pricey it is an experience you will never forget. Definitely do this one because it is much more interactive with the dolphins.
Thank you so much for an absolutely amazing experience. We will all treasure this for the rest of our lives. Please send a huge thank you to the cheeky dolphins who gave us such a fantastic fun time.
The Dolphin Program was great...with only 7 people in our group we had a full 50 minutes of attention from two dolphins. It was a wonderful experience that everyone should do once in their lives. These are the most amazing creatures and are VERY smart and fun to be around. Do yourself a favor and give it a try.

This is a once in a lifetime experience. I highly recommend it. It is worth the money.
We didn't want to leave the water! It was an amazing experience, but the price would prohibit us from doing it again. They really need to think about lowering the price. Otherwise, no complaints, only VERY high praise!
We had a great time swimming with the dolphins! Great experience!
The actual Dolphin trip was fantastic!! However there should have been transportation included because I had to spend an extra $180 just to get to Dolphon Cove from our resort (and that was the cheapest taxi) which was rediculous seeing as how you really only spent about 45 minutes with the dolphins.
My grand-daughter and her friend had a great time. The only thing is they do not tell you when you book the tour that the transportation is not included in the price and when you get there its quite expensive and you have no choice at that point to use a cab or another source. NOT EVERYONE CARIES CASH OR DEBIT TO A WATER TOUR ACTIVITY ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU THINK EVERYTHING IS PAID BEFORE YOU LEAVE.
I was afraid to book this online, but was very pleased. It not only saved me money but was a awesome time for me and my 8 year old daughter. Will book with you in the future. Thanks for making it so easy!
The tour operator charges the most of any tour for pictures, and doesn't allow you to use your own water camera, so I was disappointed that the tour was considerably more costly than I had planned.
It was fun and a total experience to be able to touch dolphins.
The tour people were not very enthusiastic and cheerful. They acted like it was work for them. Especially the guy with the big birds on December 14, 2012. They were asking for tips, but there was no tip jar. The jerk chicken in the entrance was actually the best jerk chicken we've had
