Enjoy a short drive in air-conditioned comfort to the world-famous Dunn’s River Falls where you'll climb 600 feet of cool refreshing water as it cascades over natural limestone terraces. Guides are provided to assist you when ascending the rushing waters as it plunges directly into the pristine Caribbean Sea. After this invigorating experience, you'll be transported to Dolphin Cove, home to a beautiful family of bottlenose dolphins, exotic birds, sharks, snakes and iguanas. You'll be escorted to Shark’s Cove where you'll be met by a highly trained shark encounter facilitator.

Participate in a 15 minute safety briefing before facing your fears and interacting with the most fascinating and fearsome of all sea creatures, the shark! See Pirates of Shark’s Cove and the rambunctious, hilarious Shark Show. Then the Shark’s 'victim' (you) will get a chance to touch, hold, feed and explore while swimming in the same water as these creatures. After this exciting experience, enjoy a leisurely walk through the lush tropical jungle for an an up-close experience with the beautiful and friendly birds, snakes and iguanas. Browse through the largest gift shops of any attraction in Jamaica, stocked with the widest range of dolphin souvenirs; visit the jewelry store and craft market for locally handcrafted items. Shuttle buses are available at 10 minute intervals to return you to your ship or optional shopping at your convenience.
