This place was sooo cool. The dolphins were great and they even have some exotic birds, parrots, parakeets etc. I loved just watching them and listening to them. Enjoyed spending time with the dolphins and seeing the trainers interacting with them.

Initially, I had some reservations about visiting such a venue, Due in part that though I'm no saint, (far from it), I do respect animals and so had misgivings that the Dolphins may be subject to abuse, intentionally or not. Suffice to say, despite my misgivings I certainly (101%) felt that the staff do genuinely care and importantly treat the... More

Four of us took the ferry from St. Thomas. The swim with the dolphins was awesome. The trainer who worked with us ( Jolie ) was fantastic. It was a memorable experience for all of us.

We booked this through Disney Cruise Line. The shuttle to Dolphin Discovery was nice but once we got there it was mass confusion. They told us to put our things in the cubbies and go over there. No one knew where "there" was. We then stood around for 20 or so minutes until a staff member showed us the different... More

We recently had the pleasure to visit Dolphin Discovery in Tortola during our cruise on the Norwegian Escape. Such a perfect, beautiful day. This was something my daughters and I have wanted to do together for years but my husband and I waited until they were teenagers and could really appreciate the experience. We were not disappointed.

We took 2 of our grandchildren on this excursion and we had a ball. Just to watch them interact with the dolphins and the way they were watching them with the excitement was great. Everyone made us feel welcome and we enjoyed the day.

I think we were a little fortunate in that they were not busy when we were there. It was just our family of three, the trainer and the dolphins.

We paid Thomson around $95 each for the dolphin experience. The experience was lasted about 45 mins and was really good. The price for the photos was nothing short of extortion. How they can justify $119 for what is effectively 4 or 5 photos is outrageous. If we wanted just one photo it was $35!!!!! Had we known that it... More
