35 BUSINESS VIEW CARIBBEAN SEPTEMBER 2019 F ancy a swim in the company of a smiling dolphin? It’s top of the bucket list for more people than you might imagine. Now imagine that wish coming true in the warm Caribbean Sea waters of beautiful Jamaica. Well, stop dreaming, and start packing because the Dolphin Cove adventure awaits! When Stafford and Marilyn Burrowes founded Dolphin Cove almost two decades ago, it was a true labor of love – combining their passion and concern for the amazing world of mammals and wildlife with a vision to share that memorable experience with people of all ages. Their first Dolphin Cove Park opened in 2001 in Ocho Rios, followed in 2003 by a facility at Half Moon Hotel, which is now closed because they are expanding their hotel - but not to worry, they will reopen. Then came Yaaman Adventure Park in 2004, situated on the former Prospect Plantation, an 18th century agricultural estate and a delightful natural destination. Dolphin Cove Montego Bay opened next, in Lucea, in 2010; a magnificent property situated on 23 acres of ocean frontage. And two more fantastic parks have recently opened at Puerto Seco Beach and Moon Palace’s Jamaican location. Three years ago, Dolphin Cove was listed on the Junior Stock Exchange and the majority of shares were sold to the Dolphin Discovery Group based in Mexico. Under the guidance of CEO, Mr. Eduardo DOLP HIN CO VE JAMAICA Adventure awaits!
