Encounter in Dolphin Cove Ocho Rios: After being given some interesting information about dolphins, you will have an amazing encounter as you enter the world of these gentle dolphins. They will give you a kiss and allow you to caress them while standing in knee deep water. This adventure is best for those who are not comfortable swimming in the sea and the very young. This also is a young family favourite as it gives the little ones a chance to interact with one of the world’s most beautiful creatures.

Take a stroll and interact with exotic birds, snakes and other animals on the Jungle Trail. Watch the spectacular Shark Show and learn about the marine world. Sample the tropical fruits and spices.
