Dolphin Cove, Key Largo

(4.2/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
Swim with the dolphins in the natural lagoon at Dolphin Cove. The facility offers a number of different options for interacting with these intelligent creatures. Try the structured dolphin swim program, which ensures you get one-on-one time with a dolphin. Trainers will lead you through a short lesson on the history, intelligence, and anatomy of bottlenose dolphins before you get in the water. Once in the lagoon, you'll be treated to handshakes and dorsal tows from the dolphins. For a completely different experience, try the natural dolphin swim, which allows you to snorkel alongside the animals and observe them in their natural habitat. Since the dolphins are in charge here, no contact is guaranteed, and any interaction must be initiated by the dolphin. The facility also houses three California sea lions and offers programs to engage with these animals as well.

  • These dolphins are happy and loved by the caretakers and trainers. I am certain it was the dolphins training us! Grateful for the experience to be with these majestic and intelligent mammals! January ...  more »
  • My daughter came here on a Make-a-Wish trip and they went all out for her. She wanted to swim with dolphins and she did that and much more -- she was practically a junior dolphin trainer for two days!...  more »
  • Some say cruelty the other unique experience! Each individual has to decide that. We found it very beautiful and unforgettable. To swim with dolphins, it is not commonplace. We saw many from the boat, but together with you in the water is a completely different "number". Not exactly cheap, but it makes only once in life.
