Dolphin Cove, recipient of the Jamaica Hotel and Tourist Association’s (JHTA) Best Attraction Award for 2010, is expanding its operations to cater to both local and foreign patrons who contribute to making it a choice destination. The expansion, which should see the newest Dolphin Cove being opened at Point in Hanover, is expected to create employment for many young Jamaicans in that area.
“We broke ground for this attraction in September last year, and it is scheduled to be opened in a few weeks,” Public Relations Manager at Dolphin Cove, Roger Kerr, tells JIS, pointing out that some $500 million was pumped into the development of the new Dolphin Cove.
He says that the attraction will be opened in stages, starting out with dolphins, sharks and stingrays but, in the future, it is expected to grow to equal or even surpass the offerings at Dolphin Cove Ocho Rios.
“We are establishing on 20 acres of land, so it is going to be a big park, and when completed we estimate that we will employ over 200 persons,” he says.
With the heat of summer already on, Mr. Kerr is confident that persons can look forward to a real “cool” experience at Dolphin Cove, where they can swim with the dolphins, pet the sharks, snorkel with the stingrays and enjoy the beach.
