Make your way to Dolphin Discovery Tortola, located in the Prospect Reef Hotel. Meet the dolphin trainers and listen to an informative orientation that informs you about dolphin behavior and how to safely interact with them.
Begin the Discovery Swim, designed to let humans share safe and intimate moments with some of the ocean's most intelligent marine mammals. From a waist deep platform, guests get the opportunity to caress, kiss and observe the dolphins while they perform high energy tricks.
Those who feel comfortable can swim off the platform and engage the animals in some activities. Enjoy many chances to caress them and see them up close throughout the 45-minute experience. This activity is suitable for people of all ages and abilities and is a great option for families that want to share this unique opportunity.
I was on the Norwegian Gem and the taxi ride was $5/person. So much cheaper than booking through the cruise line. I highly recommend the dolphin adventure. Maria the marine specialist was very informative and the Dolphins were AMAZING! It was well worth the money spent! I would def do it again.
I took this trip because it was half the price of the one offered on my cruise - both went to the same dolphin place. However, I had to pay $64 for a round trip cab, which made the trip only about $20 less. The experience with the dolphins was amazing and well worth the trip! Compare pricing to make sure you're getting a good deal - the ship provided transportation, and with Viator, we had to get there on our own.
what a wonderful time my husband and I had at the dolphin experience the staff were wonderful and informative it was the hi-light of my holiday and something I will never forget We will be recommending this experience to everyone S.Greenfield England
Awesome experience of a lifetime
If you can arrange it, this should be a must do on your vacation. There are three or four other pools, so they can accommodate several groups. If you can avoid it do not book with a large group or tour bus. 30 or 40 people in the pool at the same time does not give you much individual time with the dolphins. The session is only about a half hour in the water.
Our group included my family of four and another family of four......8 of us in all and just the right size goup. We were delighted to interact with FOUR dolphins, two adult females and two smaller ones. We were all able to stroke them, shake hands, play ball, kiss and play with them. The experience was all that we could have wished for. My two grandchildren wanted to return the following day. You are not allowed to take your own pictures, but there is a photographer who snaps scores of pictures. And, of course, you are encouraged to buy the pix and/or the CD. A somewhat pricey day if you are on a tight budget. But, if you can, save up ahead of time and splurge on the experience.
Really a fun thing to experience and our kids loved it-will cherish our pictures always. When any one asks how our trip was my four year old replies,"I swam with the dolphins"

It was really just OK. We wouldn't likely do it again - especially for the money. The dolphin was beautiful and wonderful to interact with when we had the opportunity. But our group was too big and crowded, so our time was really limited with the one dolphin in the pool with us. Our trainer was polite and personable - you could just tell that he was struggling to get everyone time with the one dolphin. Also - we would have LOVED to have a souvenir photo of our trip, but they price the photos and packages so that they are incredibly unreasonable ... 20 dollars for ONE picture not even including a digital copy. For a family of four, that becomes pretty unreasonable. So we left with less dolphin experience than we had expected based on the description and no photos. Cannot recommend it.
