Have you ever dreamt of swimming with dolphins? Such an experience used to require a flight to the US, but now you can have this magical adventure right here in the Cayman Islands. At Dolphin Cove you can swim with dolphins in Cayman’s only natural saltwater lagoon where six dolphins live happily in a natural habitat.
Dolphin Cove in Grand Cayman offers a fun-filled day for the whole family, with a variety of programmes available for people of all ages and swimming abilities. Swim and interact with friendly Atlantic bottlenose dolphins, up close and personal. You can even touch and kiss them!
During each programme you will have a personal photographer taking photos and videos of your entire experience, available for purchase after your session. Your photographer will ensure that all those special moments are caught in clear, professional shots.
The great thing about having your own paparazzo (so to speak) following you around is that it will allow you to leave your cameras tucked safely in your bag, so you can make the most of every minute with your dolphin.
Dolphin Cove offers three different Dolphin programmes: Dolphin Encounter, Dolphin Swim and Ultimate Dolphin Swim. These have been specifically designed to cater to a range of ages and requirements.
Before your programme begins you will have an informative orientation with one of the trainers, where they will give you some information designed to help you once in the water. They will also talk about the beautiful dolphins in the lagoon and will be happy to answer any questions or concerns you might have.
Once you’ve enjoyed your encounter with the dolphins, you can take a stroll through a jungle of native Cayman trees, plants, and flowers flourishing in the tropical environment. Look out for wild iguanas, chickens, frogs, snakes, hermit crabs and more. You will also come face to face with some of the most beautiful birds in the world. Mingle with, talk and hold one or two of the beautiful parrots and cockatoos.
