Super nice, unique experience

I got the trip for free. I am really excited. Everything went great. Very nice, dear contact directly with Dolphin Cove regarding transfer from the ship to the dolphin swim ($ 12 per person / trip). We received a reminder email from Dolphin Cove and from Get your Guide the day before. Transfer, punctual, friendly, TOP dolphin swimming a unique, great experience that I will never forget in my life. We had to wait almost 2 hours before we were allowed into the pool to see the dolphins. But watching it is also a great experience. 5 stars *****, I can only recommend it.

The dolphin swim was great, but overpriced

The trip from the ship (Montego Bay) to the meeting point by taxi cost US $ 200. The local provider promised to send us a driver for $ 35, but no one came. Swimming with a dolphin was great !!!! The facility is pure nep, everything was overpriced, for one photo we should pay 20 US dollars, for the video 99 US dollars. No thanks!

Great experience, everything went very well

The feeling of touching a dolphin, rushing off with it or being pushed by it was great. Just too short and annoying was the many photography of the staff rip-off 1 Photo 39 USD. 1 CD 80 USD !!
