AAA Editor Notes
Dolphin Cove is 2 mi. (3.5 km) w. on Belmont Rd. (Rte. A1). Visitors can touch, kiss and swim with these friendly marine mammals at a seaside park. For swimming participants over age 8, two programs offer deep-water encounters in a natural cove: the Royal Swim with two bottlenose dolphins includes play time, a kiss, a foot push, a belly ride and a dorsal pull; and the Swim Adventure offers splashing and dancing with a single dolphin. A program is offered where visitors can rub, hold, and feed sharks as well as snorkel with them.
Children and non-swimmers can enjoy the Encounter, which takes place in knee-deep water. Visitors also can interact with stingrays, snorkel, and take mini-boat and glass-bottom kayak rides. The park also offers a beach, a waterslide, a bird aviary and a jungle trail, where guides encourage interaction with parrots, snakes and iguanas.
Food is available. Time: Allow 2 hours minimum.
