Just couldn't pass up the opportunity to swim with the dolphins! On my bucket list, for sure! They do have 3 different options as to what you can do with the dolphins and the price is set accordingly. We went for the whole thing (all the tricks). The price through the cruise line was $170.00 (each). They have their own... More

We had a good time. I"m glad we did it and our kids really enjoyed it. It was a good learning experience also. Our trainer was knowledgable and my 4yr retained some of the info he gave us. It was a bummer that we weren't allowed to take any of our pictures while in the water. The photos that are... More

My daughter-in-law, her 3 year old, 5 year old, 8 year old and I did this in Dec. 2016 while in port from the Norwegian Escape. We booked on our own. It was a short ride from the port. I think we were charged $5 for our group and return trip was free. It was a very beautiful place. The... More

This is a genuinely class-A place...very nice facility, excellent staff and, of course, wonderfully talented dolphins!! We had FUN, FUN, FUN! The time you spend with the trainer and the dolphins is wonderful...unique. We were part of a group of 20 people, but were allocated to smaller groups of 6 or 7 per trainer and his/her pair of dolphins. The... More

Had a lovely couple of hours here, on Dolphin Encounter. You get to touch and learn about the dolphins. I was a little taken aback originally when I saw the enclosure but the dolphin seemed happy enough and it was explained to us that they actually live longer in captivity . It was worth the money I paid in my... More

SO-- I've always wanted to swim with dolphins, and in Tortola I was able to make it happen. Hubby elected not to go, so I went alone and made quick friends with another solo traveler. The location was amazing, close to natural habitat, so I was happy to see that. The trainers were so kind - most importantly to the... More

My daughter and I watched the rest of the family play with dolphins. There were 4 adults and 3 children - and they were part of a group of about 20. My grandson, age 6, was terrified to get into the water. But his parents carried him in anyway. The trainer explained that "their dolphin" was in kindergarten and just... More

I took my 7 year old daughter who was old enough to do the swimming encounter. (and with aunt, uncle, and cousins). My wife took the 3 and 5 year old who got to pet and kiss the dolphins.
