Location & Map
Dolphin Cove has two locations for your vacationing pleasure,the first is Dolphin Cove Ocho Rios adjacent to Dunn's River Falls. See Map of Dolphin Cove Ocho Rios. And last but not least Dolphin Cove Montego Bay (located in Lucea, half way between Negril and Montego Bay) . Our park in Moon Palace are exclusive for their guests.
As the number of participants in the dolphin and shark programs is limited and due to the overwhelming popularity of all programs, we strongly recommend you make advance reservations as early as possible to ensure that you secure your space of choice. To facilitate reservations we have added a booking section in every program so you can easily check the availability for the date of your visit and make a prompt reservation. Payment is needed to confirm all program spaces.
What to Bring
Carry towels and extra money to purchase snacks, souvenirs, videos and pictures of your swim with dolphins or shark program. Cameras are allowed at Dolphin Cove Jamaica, but not in the dolphin area or while participating in a Dolphin program as this distracts the dolphins as they want to splash and play with your camera. Photos of your dolphin experience are developed by our on-site photo lab. Our professional photographers take amazing pictures which are sold from the photo pavilion.
What NOT to bring
All jewellery, especially rings and bracelets should be left behind because these can scratch or hurt the dolphins. Although you may carry sunscreen lotion, we ask that you refrain from using it BEFORE swimming or touching the dolphins, for their safety. We invite to take care of our environment and species by applying biodegradable sunscreen.
Transportation is not included in our tour rates, but can be arranged at an additional quoted cost once we have been notified where you are staying while on the island. Please call 1-866-393-5158 for more information.
