About this experience
After being given some interesting information about dolphins, you will have an amazing encounter as you enter the world of these gentle dolphins. They will give you a hug and allow you to caress them while standing in knee deep water. This adventure is best for those who are not comfortable swimming in the sea and the very young. This also is a young family favourite as it gives the little ones a chance to interact with one of the world’s most beautiful creatures.
Enjoy snorkeling and interacting with stingrays (barbs removed). Take a stroll and interact with exotic birds, snakes and other animals on the Jungle Trail. Sample the tropical fruits and spices. Try our World's Famous Blue Mountain Coffee at our own Star Buccaneer's Coffee Shop. Have your hair braided. Enjoy a day at Dolphin Cove Ocho Rios Habitat, an admission included when you purchase your swim with Dolphin Encounter program.
Come to Dolphin Cove for the day to make memories of a lifetime!
