(3.6/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
Swim with dolphins at Dolphin Discovery Grand Cayman. Choose one of the programs and interact with the marine mammals in a specially designed dolphinarium. The programs are suitable for adults and children over eight years of age. The well-maintained facilities offer restrooms, changing rooms, and lockers. Watch the dolphins perform tricks, pet them, and then swim alongside the marine creatures. Sign up for the "Royal Swim" to get close with the dolphins; in this program they pull you across the pool and push you up to the surface of the water by the soles of your feet.

  • We had such a great time ! The interaction was incredible even though the swimming part is a little hectic it was a blast holding onto that boogie board was a task but we had a great laugh 
  • We were on a city tour and we stopped here to check out the dolphins. I didn't have a bathing suit and would have loved to swim with them! We had to stand behind ropes and couldn't enter the swim area...  more »
  • I did the royal swim, which is about 40 minutes long with an instructional session that's about 10 minutes long. They give you a locker to put all your things in. And a life jacket. The Royal swim inc...  more »

  • These guys look after the dolphins so well... We got the 'Royal' deal, which included a semi exclusive encounter with these intelligent and beautiful creatures. I just wished we had a little bit more time with them. Our host was happy to answer our questions and give us lots of info on the dolphins while we stroked them and played some ball games :)
  • Had a great time here. Newton and his trainer Carlos were an excellent pair. Extremely fun, entertaining, and informative.
  • I would say this this "Discovery" is more about getting a photograph than actually teaching and interacting with dolphins. My wife and I went on a shore excursion with carnival and although it was enjoyable it was a little underrated. We could have paid more to have a dolphin push us on a boogie board but in our price range we got to stand in the water and touch its flipper and kiss it if we wanted to. It really seems driven towards photo sales more than the encounter! Guess I was just expecting more....
  • My mom was the only one with the dolphins because it was for her birthday however I had just as much fun watching. Truly an extraordinary experience, she got the royal treatment and was the only one in her group, something to remember forever!
  • My best experience so far in my life! Wonderful dolphins encounter and interactions hard to describe what you feel during and after you will interact with these wonderful dolphins. I was reflecting over and over again about this experience for more than three days. This experience it's a must do if you ever get here! Congratulations for the staff for doing a wonderful job and taking a good care of the sweet dolphins!
