I enjoyed the good people who take care of the sanctuary and dolphins and admire their commitment to this small but noble cause. It's a non profit venture that needs our support and I only see as positive. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience which included interaction with and diving with the dolphins and learned much... I would do it again... More

Palau is a Marine Sanctuary for Sharks and then they have a Dolphine Prison ??? !!!! This shouldn't happen in Palau. I urge everybody not to support this Dolphin Prison. Dolphins belong to the open ocean !

The dolphins are kept in very small pens and are made to perform the usual tricks for tourists. Horrible.

My visit here was the highlight of my trip and the one that made friends back home the most envious. There are many options that you can choose to customize your experience with the dolphins, and all are FAR and away less than you would spend for a similar experience in French Polynesia, Hawaii, or other places. The cheapest option... More

Incredible experience of a lifetime. We had a blast here, dolphins were amazing. We took freedive tour, so we had a chance to snorchel with them, touch them and enjoy every moment. Very nice guide Niky from Sweden. We were lucky we were there the only one during afternoon session. Lucky we! Highly recomended.

I brought my 12 year-old here who is keenly interested in dolphins for the introduction and "dolphin symphony". Our guide from Sweden was absolutely wonderful with my daughter who has a slight mobility disorder and social aspects of autism. Although my daughter was afraid to touch the dolphins from outside the pool, our lovely guide did a "practice session" with... More

The venue has several pools where the dolphins live. You are able to get a lecture and experience how the trainers work and teach the dolphins exercises. We've got a great time at the 1 day trainer activity. But for the price we paid, the actual interaction with dolphins is quite short - we were permitet to feed the dolphin... More

My husband and I came here on a whim and it may have been the best experience of our trip. We had the most amazing guide who was from I think Sweden, so she luckily spoke English and took her time explaining everything to us. As a person who is conscious of animal rights, I would have been hesitant to... More
