Here is a selection of the most recent reviews of the Tortola Dolphin Discovery Swim submitted by actual travelers. Read what travelers liked, what they loved, and what they thought could be improved.
If you can arrange it, this should be a must do on your vacation. There are three or four other pools, so they can accommodate several groups. If you can avoid it do not book with a large group or tour bus. 30 or 40 people in the pool at the same time does not give you much individual time with the dolphins. The session is only about a half hour in the water.
Our group included my family of four and another family of four......8 of us in all and just the right size goup. We were delighted to interact with FOUR dolphins, two adult females and two smaller ones. We were all able to stroke them, shake hands, play ball, kiss and play with them. The experience was all that we could have wished for. My two grandchildren wanted to return the following day. You are not allowed to take your own pictures, but there is a photographer who snaps scores of pictures. And, of course, you are encouraged to buy the pix and/or the CD. A somewhat pricey day if you are on a tight budget. But, if you can, save up ahead of time and splurge on the experience.Reviewed by: Diana, December 2012
Really a fun thing to experience and our kids loved it-will cherish our pictures always. When any one asks how our trip was my four year old replies,"I swam with the dolphins"Reviewed by: Renee M, February 2011
Told I must reconfirm 24 hours before trip, difficult when on a cruise. Then given wrong telephone number, which really didn't help!Reviewed by: Jill D, United Kingdom, November 2009
