Dolphin Encounter ProgramAdd Dolphin Cove Cayman to your West Bay travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our West Bay road trip planning website.
This program is specifically designed for young children, non-swimmers and those keen to get an up close encounter with a dolphin. Guests stand waist high in the water and interact with the dolphins. You will get to touch, kiss, dance, sing and learn all sorts of fascinating facts about your dolphin. The dolphins will also perform some high energy behaviors guaranteed to thrill and delight. No minimum age – however for safety reasons, young children must be accompanied by one adult per child. (Children under 11 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. Children 4 years of age and under must be accompanied by 1 adult PER CHILD. Children 4 years of age and above, maximum of 2 children per adult .)
Dolphin Swim Program
You will receive a life vest before getting into the deep water, where guests will get to interact, touch, kiss and enjoy an up close experience. You will get a thrill out of our famous belly rides, where you ride belly to belly with one of our amazing dolphins. At the end of your program, see your dolphins fly high in the air with their spectacular jumps. Minimum age 5 years or older and must be strong swimmers– however for safety reasons, young children must be accompanied by an adult. (Children under 11 years of age must be accompanied an adult).
Ultimate Dolphin Swim Program
This is our most popular program! After receiving a life vest, you get to interact with two dolphins while swimming in the deep. Enjoy a kiss from your new friend then experience the Dorsal Tow (2 dolphins pull you into the platform while you are holding onto their dorsal fins). Feel the thrill and excitement of the sea rushing you by with the Foot Push (2 dolphins push you across the surface of the water, feel like superman – experience the adrenaline).
It’s our most preferred program and requires the greatest advance booking. Minimum age of the Ultimate Swim Program is 8 years old. (Children under 11 years of age must be accompanied an adult).

One of the best days of my life. Completely friendly. The guides were funny courteous and not pushy. Warning if you buy a shore excursion through the cruise lines there will be upgrades if you decide. I recommend during the medium upgrade with 2 dolphins. Our package included the stingray sandbar which was amazing as well!!! I would recommend this for everyone !!!
Absolutely genial experience! It was really amazing. They made a great show - dolphins and instructors together
