Dolphin Cove is one of the most sought-after experiences in Jamaica thanks to its main feature: visitors get to swim with dolphins. While there are many places around the world where you can do this, Dolphin Cove is special due to its location. Situated in a cove, it’s here that the animals get to swim and live in their natural environment of the sea. The cove is also next to a lush rain forest, providing both gorgeous scenery and fun with sea life during your time here.

Visitors suit up and get into the water to frolic with and kiss friendly dolphins, but there’s also the opportunity to get up close and personal with Caribbean sharks to pet and feed them. Stingrays also glide around Dolphin Cove, and you can swim and interact with them as well. There are also mini boats and glass-bottomed kayaks available to explore the water around Dolphin Cove and see even more colorful sea life. Plus, Dolphin Cove has every facility for a great day out, offering a Jamaican-style buffet lunch, shopping in the gift shop and tropical drinks from the bar.

Practical Info

Dolphin Cove is located in Ocho Rios, opposite the famous Dunn's River falls, and is open daily. Due to the limited nature of the activities at Dolphin Cove and its popularity, it is recommended that you book your dolphin or shark experience well in advance.
