Default Dolphin Cove Ochos Rios

Has anyone tried the excursion at the Dolphin Cove to swim with the dolphins??
Wondering whether it is worth the $$$$.

We went in May/03. We felt it was worth it. But be sure to swim w/the dolphins, not the touch. The touch is not worth it. My hubby and I (mid 40's) and 2 kids, 21 & 19 went. They loved it. We got to interact w/the dolphin in a group of 10 people, get to touch and dance w/the dolphin, and get to "kiss" him at the end. We were on the RC Explorer of the Seas ship and it also included Dunns River Falls on the Excursion. I wouldn't do it again, but we felt it was worth it to do one time. We paid $96.00 each last year. It provided the transportation to Dolphin Cove, and they have a jungle walk you can take, and different sea life to see. They also do a vcr tape of your time w/the dolphins. We paid $39. for the tape, or they do a 8X10 pictures for $14. each. The tape is a nice souviner, as it is live, but is of all the people in the group too. Then we went over to Dunns River Falls, and did the falls, then returned to the ship at our leisure. We had wrist bands and could stay as long as we wanted at each place. They had busses that ran every 15 min. to go to each place.
Enjoy your cruise!

I did the botanical garden tour with Dunn's River falls. The dolphin cove was closed.
I heard the cool running tour was great.
