My wife and I spent an hour with two dolphins and a trainer. It was the best part of my 1 week vacation in Punta Cana. I would recommend paying the extra for two dolphins as it's only you the dolphins and their trainer. The other groups only got to touch them , however we got to do all sorts... More

My family of 4 (kids ages 10 & 13) all had such a great time! Our only complaint is it didn't last longer. All of the employees were exceptional!! We even got into a conundrum because I forgot to bring our credit card to order pictures but I was given an email address and able to order them through paypal... More

Beautiful experience! My favorite excursion in DR definitely going back. Kissing, swimming and interacting with the dolphins was breathtaking. Loved it! The staff is very professional and kind. Carlos and his crew really helped me with my ocean fear, I felt safe and forget I was in the sea.

The trip was fantastic, the staff was very professional and attentive to the travelers needs. They gave very good instructions for us to follow and made the trip very comfortable for all attending. The photographer did an outstanding job capturing the best moments with the dolphins. Didn't even know we had the opportunity to then swim with giant sting rays... More

During a recent visit to Punta Cana I had the pleasure of visiting Dolphin Island. This was a bucket list item for me and lived up to expectations. The bus ride from the hotel seems to take forever, but really it's not too bad. Once you get there though, the dolphins are amazing and there's plenty of interaction with them.... More

They also take a ton of photos of your experience for purchase but will use yours too. Grabbed a drink after while waiting for our photos. We did get used to... More
