About Dolphin Cove Jamaica


The foundation

In February 2001, Dolphin Cove opened its doors just across the road from Dunn’s River Falls in Ocho Rios. Originally the Burrows' family home, it was transformed into a three-acre marine park with initially four dolphins as the star attractions and since then, has undoubtedly risen to become the country’s leading tourism attraction.

The growth

Just 4 years later in 2005, Half Moon Dolphin Lagoon became the second Dolphin Cove park, right at the heart of the Half Moon Resort, becoming a one of a kind attraction exclusive to their guests. In 2010 Dolphin Cove Montego Bay (previously Dolphin Cove Negril) opened the door of its 23 acre of ocean frontage for all their visitors and finally in 2015 Dolphin Cove settled the 4th park in Jamaica at Moon Palace Jamaica Grande, another wonderful location exclusive for the hotel’s guests.


Why Dolphin Cove

Our dolphin interactive programs rank among the best in the world but we are much more than that as we have a wide range of animal interactions that parks visitors can experience. Among the 4 parks you can experience amazing activities for the whole family like Mini-boats and exploring the coast, interacting and snorkeling with stingrays, petting the camels, watching our hilarious shark show, relaxing on our glistening white sandy beaches, taking a glass-bottom kayak ride to explore the fascinating underwater world, interacting with exotic birds, snakes and iguanas on the Jungle Trail walk.


Awards and recognitions

After fifteen years in the business, Dolphin Cove has developed into a dynamic attraction offering a plethora of activities for visitors to do. Increasingly, more and more visitors are zooming into this unique adventure, and the reviews have been nothing less than great! This is evidenced by the numerous local and international awards we have won including the most recent, Jamaica Hotel & Tourist Award for the Attraction of the Year 2013.

Dolphin Cove belongs to the Dolphin Discovery Group since late 2015, and now it’s part of a family of 24 parks in 9 countries and 2 continents! We are proud to be part of the #1 dolphin company in the world.
