Jamaican Marine Parks Under New Ownership

Dolphin Cove-Nov25

Mexico’s Dolphin Discovery Group has acquired four marine parks in Jamaica, among them Dolphin Cove, which opened in 2001 in Ocho Rios Bay in front of Dunn’s River Falls.

Dolphin Cove Ocho Rios spans three acres and offers the likes of an interactive swim with dolphins, and interacting with sharks and rays.

The other Dolphin Cove locations are Dolphin Cove Negril, Dolphin Cove Half Moon and Dolphin Cove Moon Palace, with the latter recently opening inside the Moon Palace Jamaica Grande Hotel, part of Mexico’s Palace Resorts chain.

“Dolphin Cove is without a doubt one of the main attractions in Ocho Rios and Negril. As well as Dolphin Discovery, they care about offering an excellent service for their guests, but above all, care and commitment with the species in their care. Therefore, acquiring a company with the same values and a success background generates confidence to bet on this wonderful destination and continue investing in Jamaica,” said Eduardo Albor, Dolphin Discovery Group CEO.

Dolphin Discovery started operations 21 years ago in Cancun and has become the world leader in interactive swim with dolphins with 23 parks in nine countries.

It has contributed to research about and conservation of marine mammal animals.

More than five million visitors up today have visited the 23 dolphinariums in Mexico, Anguilla, Tortola, Grand Cayman, Dominican Republic, Saint Kitts, the USA, Italy and now Jamaica.
