Top Things to Do in Montego Bay

DOLPHIN SWIMMING

A natural cove at the edge of the sea gives you an amazing encounter with one of the gentle dolphins of Montego Bay. A great experience for children and families, this encounter lets you interact with one of the world’s most beautiful and intelligent creatures in the warm waters of the Caribbean.

The setting for your encounter is the 23-acre (9-ha) oceanfront estate of Dolphin Cove Montego Bay. First, an orientation gives you some insight into the friendly sea mammals, and then it’s time to enter the world of these affable creatures. When a dolphin greets you in the knee-deep water, you get a splash or two, a hug, and a kiss as you spend some time together in the sea.

While you’re here, the cove offers plenty more fun to help you complete your day. You can visit a stingray habitat for a chance to interact with the barb-free rays, pet a group of camels for some hands-on time with these versatile animals, or watch a spectacular shark show to get to know other great creatures of the sea.
