We cruised on the Carnival Destiny to Grand Cayman and booked a combo excursion that included Dolphin Cove and Stingray City. The Dolphin Cove grounds are really nice - well-kept and professional. When you arrive in the parking lot, you will walk down a manicured path through lush vegetation to get to the building where you'll check in. There are... More

We ended up going to Stingray City then back to the dolphins. We were in a small group with one dolphin Sally who... More

Our excursion was a Carnival Cruise excursion - It included time at the Turtle Farm across the road. Swimming with the dolphins was a magnificent experience. Professional photographers took photos of every moment my husband & I spent with the dolphins - the whole set on disk was a bargain @ $100 (considering 1 print was $25). Don't bother bringing...

We were traveling with our 5 year old grandaughter. She loved being able to touch the dolphin and "dance" with him also. The whole experience was just wonderful. I would do it again if the opportunity arises.

Captain Eddie did a terrific job in explaining what to expect and how best enjoy the experience. He and his crew were excellent in managing our experience with the sting rays in the water. They made... More
