Ocho Rios Dolphin Swim Excursion Reviews
I had originally booked Glass Bottom Kayaking and the Falls but the weather was so bad they said we could upgrade to any excursion for free so I went for the Dolphin Swim. It was pouring down with rain and the bus trip to Dolphin Cove was short. We got our life jackets on and made our way to the Dolphin. The water didn't look very clean but we had a great time with our dolphin. We got to smooth her and dance with her and had a belly ride and she gave us a kiss and we gave her a kiss back. The photographer was brilliant and got some great photos. I bought a photo as I thought $15 wasn't too extortionate in comparison to some of the places I'd been before. The only downside is that you had to pay an $11 deposit for the locker which was absolutely tiny and they gave you $5.50 back upon return of the key.
There was no time limit on how long you could stay at the shops at Dolphin Cove as there were always buses going onto Dunns River Falls. The tour operator didn't make it very clear how to get in and out of Dolphin Cove. You had to walk through shops and go upstairs and the path wound around the forest so it was all a bit confusing.
Loved the dolphin swim. Everyone was nice and the experience was wonderful.
The pictures or CD's of the encounter was crazy expensive though. I mean, $50 for a CD?? $15 for ONE picture? C'mon!
We did a Dolphin SeaTrek at Dolphin Cove and I was smiling for the rest of the day! You (and up to 7 other people) wear your own helmet with fresh cycling oxygen about 10 feet underwater. There's a rope along the circle you walk in for balance and the workers/divers bring you dolphins and other creatures to touch and encounter. You are not allowed to take your own underwater camera but (of course) they have professional photographers underwater and you can purchase them afterward. I could have done this excursion all day!! Dolphin Cove also has a lot of other activities included in your ticket price and it was a great value for what we got to explore and experience.
chanakaab in Coz was way better.
Jamaica is a beautiful island
Fun - Go to Dolphin Cove for a fun day BUT BEWARE - Beach there is not fun - many rocks - very small
