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. My daughter was excited to do it but then decided she would not do the swimming. Fortunately, they sent us out... More

Recommend the Full Day Tour which includes the roundtrip ferry ride to Tortola, taxi, guide, "Royal Swim" (including popular Foot Push), stop for lunch, beach time, vistas, and visit to rum distillery. Our driver, Joe, was a guide who didn't just point out the obvious points of interest but dwelled upon the cultural history of the island, the struggles of... More

Booked this as part of a cruise trip, came away feeling cheated and hugely disappointed, they clearly could not cope with the volume of people. Time in with the dolphins was very rushed, and we individually had 15-20 seconds each with a dolphin. Photos were a complete rip off, $99 dollars for all photos or $35 each photo. Having paid...

Great experience at an affordable price. Location was a short taxi ride from the cruise dock. We booked the dolphin royal swim on their website & saved $40 per person during a special they had. Much cheaper & better experience than what the cruise ship offered. Location was a little rundown but clean. They offered restrooms, changing rooms, and a... More

We went on a cruise last month and among the excursions we chose we decided to go and swim with the dolphins. It cost £100 pp and worth every penny. We had a lot of activities in the water with our designed dolphin, Coco besides kissing or holding. I am sure they have a website where you can check everything.... More

Great experience but entering the country was long and aborious, plus the boat ride from the cruise ship was well over an hour. Photos taken were hugely overpriced and poor quality

This was an amazing time with the dolphins. The animals are well cared for and the time with them is one we will never forget. We booked the adventure package online and loved every minute of it. Alberto was wonderful with the group. We will treasure our memories forever!! We highly recommend this for anyone cruising in the Caribbean.

We booked this directly through Dolphin Discovery on our recent cruise. A quick taxi ride over from the port. Worth every penny!! Highly recommend spending the extra money for the Royal Swim- the foot push alone was worth it. Kisses, high fives, drags, petting... The trainers were great to keep us interacting and petting the dolphins while others were taking... More
