Prepare yourself for a 6-hour, action-packed adventure in Jamaica that not only will have you interacting in the water with friendly bottlenose dolphins, but also climbing to the tippy-top of Dunn’s River Falls. Enjoy island scenery while traveling in an air-conditioned bus to Dolphin Cove. This tropical eden is known for its dense jungle surroundings and white sand shoreline, plus native animals galore. Here is where you’ll meet a team of expert dolphin trainers who invite you into a shallow-water habitat for fun, hands-on interaction. Learn all about the behaviors and eating habits of these intelligent creatures. While in the water standing in a submerged platform with them you’ll have the chance to kiss, dance and swim belly-to-belly with dolphins. Then you’ll head to the world-famous Dunn’s River Falls to trek up its natural stone staircase. Feel the rush of cool waters as you climb to 600 feet upwards across the cascades, and enjoy refreshing swims in a collection of natural pools along the way. After a short bit of souvenir shopping you’ll head back to port invigorated from discovering Jamaica’s natural wonders.
