My boyfriend and I are from Pittsburgh and were on vacation to our first trip ever to Florida. We decided that no Florida trip would be complete without doing a swim with the dolphins and boy were we right! We did a little bit of research online and ultimately decided to go with Dolphin Cove, as they are into being... More

Had a great experience swimming with the dolphins. We did the structured swim program and were very lucky to have only 4 people going when we did. It wound up being just myself and my fiancé with the trainer and 2 dolphins. They did many behaviors with us including dorsal pulls and "superman" swims. Even when it began to pour,... More

Dolphin cove is centrally located in Key Largo (they also have another facility named Dolphins Plus). There are several different options of mammal interaction to choose and I went with the structured dolphin swim. You are in a life vest and this activity would work for swimmers of all different experience levels. After a very informative briefing about dolphins, the... More

Visited in September and paid 150 for a half hour natural swim in the lagoon with 7 dolphins. There were only 2 of us so we had the entire pool to ourselves. The instructors were great - very relaxed and even gave us great tips on how to increase interaction. I fully recommend this once in a lifetime experience as... More

Had a great time but it was to short for 200 bucks a person. I feel they need to give more time with the dolphins.

We booked a structured swim at Dolphin Cove as it was just down the road from the hotel we were saying in. We called in to ave a look the day before then telephoned to book. All very easy. I prepaid for the photographs before the swim as I knew I would want to buy them. When we arrived the... More

The people here are so sweet! Unfortunately we didn't have time in our stay to swim with the dolphins but we did stop by and they let us go watch them interact with their instructors for a few minutes! Just thought that was really awesome! You can tell how passionate they are about their job! Deff something we will be... More

I am a huge Dolphin enthusiast and on our trip we all went to swim with the dolphins. They were very well experienced and knew everything question that was asked. The dolphins were so friendly and did as asked. I am also a big fan that they stay in natural ocean water. I am not a fan of zoos that... More
