Yes the dolphin lagoon is very close to the ship berths - it was a $4 taxi ride. We booked this trip independantly over the internet and it is MUCH cheaper. There was a total of three privately booked individuals on our trip and we had a pool and dolphins to ourselves !! The cruise trip had 12 people to each pool !! Watch out for the slippery outdoor shower. Wear those special water shoes in the dolphin pool and in the shower. I broke my shoulder very badly slipping over in the shower.
Hi, would like to swim with the dolpins, can you remember who you booked with. I am sure it has been mentioned before but I cannot find the information. Thanks Lorna.
Www.dolphindiscovery.com/tortola or put into google swim with dolphins tortola and there are other booking sites such as www.dtraveller.com. make sure you choose the one near to the ships dock around 5 mins by taxi. you can book online and choose the time you want. look up the times of tours from the ship and avoid clashing with them then the place will be less crowded though you will have a private pool to yourself with other privately booked people. we went at 11.30 ish and there was a total of three people in the pool with the 2 dolphins !
Thats good advice, thank you so much!
This is a better place to ask or look for the answer as far more contributions - It is easy to find recommendations of local tour operators, - go to a browser and enter 'message tortola cruise' and the first link returned should give you all the info you need. Repeat as necessary for each island you are interested in.
We did not walk aroung Mntego Bay but try and go to the YS Falls, and then onto Black river and then to teh Pelican Bar if you ask your taxi driver he can arrange for the fishto be caught and cooked here for you. If youlike different experiences these are certainly different. If you are going to Dunns River go onto Raggae Beach cost $5 per person admission. Empty beach and again the lads will catch your fish and cook it for you or you can have Jerk chicken.
