Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

WHAT YOU VISIT
- Dolphin Cove
Upon arrival, you'll stroll through a jungle of lush trees and plants to the 25-foot-deep lagoon, home to bottlenose dolphins. After orientation from a trained handler, you'll enter the deep water and soon discover the joy of hugging, kissing, and interacting with your fine "flippered" friends. Feel the magical thrill of "riding" the dolphin belly to belly as the ocean rushes by, get a kiss, and play with the dolphins.

- Stingray City Sandbar
Perched on the northwest corner of Grand Cayman's North Sound, Stingray City is home to a whole fleet of southern stingrays who congregate near the shore. As you enter the clear waters of their natural habitat, the graceful southern stingrays will glide tranquilly past you. (Snorkeling equipment, a snorkel vest, professional instruction, supervision, and food for rays are provided).

PHOTO OPPORTUNITY
A team of experienced photographers and videographers at Dolphin Cove are available to take a picture that is available for purchase, since the use of personal cameras is restricted for the safety and welfare of the animals.

SHOPPING
To commemorate your visit to Dolphin Cove, you can browse for souvenirs in the gift shop.

WHAT YOU SEE ALONG THE WAY
A walk through Dolphin Cove reveals a world of Grand Cayman's lush flora and fauna. Perhaps you will see an iguana or two, a fluttering butterfly, or come face-to-face with some of the most beautiful birds in the world.
