Gregory Burrowes, vice-president of operations, was elected president of the Association of Jamaica Attractions Limited on September 24.

The company was awarded the Caribbean's Leading Adventure Excursion Operator for 2011 at the World Travel Awards for the Caribbean and The Americas held on October 19.

On October 11, Dolphin Cove sponsored the premiere of the movie Dolphin Tale at The Palace Cineplex in Kingston. The premiere was in aid of Chain of Hope Jamaica, which assists children to receive life-saving cardiac operations at the Bustamante Hospital for Children.

Community Building

Dolphin Cove (Ocho Rios and Negril) participated in the International Coastal Clean-up Day on September 17, by providing a team of volunteers to clean up the Rio Nuevo coastline in St Mary and sponsoring refreshments. This was done in conjunction with the White River Watershed and Ocho Rios Marine Park.

Dolphin Cove (Negril) also participated in the International Coastal Clean-up Day by providing a team of volunteers to clean up the Meeting Place Beach at Catherine Hall in St James. This was done in conjunction with the Montego Bay Marine Park.

Outlook

The full impact of the Falmouth Cruise Ship Terminal, which has increased the cruise ship berthing capacity in Jamaica by 50 per cent, will be apparent as the new winter season starts.

The company's Sea Trek tour that has been accepted by the cruise industry and sales will commence shortly.

The potential of the local market is recognised and Dolphin Cove plans to continue efforts to attract larger numbers of local visitors.

Work continues on developing the company's 'Dining with the Dolphins' evening show. This is expected to start in early December, to capitalise on the coming winter season.
