When sold this excursion, I was told that my 5 year old was both old enough and tall enough. Was picked up, taken to the docking station and told that you must be 8 years old to swim with dolphins. Since our family of 4 had already committed and paid we tried to still do it. Got on the boat... More

Had a truly amazing time. We went on our honeymoon and this was a wedding present. We got a great trip on a speedboat before our dolphin experience. The time with dolphins was just as incredible as we had hoped for. The dolphins were so talented and well trained. They seemed really happy and looked really well looked after. The... More

This place is awful. There are sea lions and dolphins cooped up in little squares of water hardly big enough for them to swim around. We counted 6 sea lions in one square - the squares were about 5m2 so you can imagine how cramped it was. Ditto for the fish. Whilst it was cool snorkelling with sharks and rays,... More

My two teens did the adventures while my husband and I watched. They had a great time and although you cannot take pictures with the Dolphins you an with the other animals.... More

While on our vacation in Punta Cana we wanted to take our kids to swim with the dolphins. We were picked up at our resort and had a short drive to Dolphin Island. When we got there, we were separated into groups and watched a short video before being taken out to the dolphins. When we got out to the... More

My daughters, ages 19 and 14, made this excursion on Monday, July 21, 2015. We loved every minute of it. The bus picked up promptly from our hotel and we proceeded to the park. Once we got to the park we were led to the check in and boarded a boat to the enclosures to visit with the sea lions... More

Salesmen by the main pool in Melia Tropical Resort sold our family a package for 9 at $95 USD per person for a total of $855. It should be noted that when calculating, he also tried to add in a random $20 so he could pocket some cash, but he was quickly called out. After paying in cash, we received... More

We arrived and waited at least 45 minutes to be taken out... after that we were told (in Spanish because no one spoke English) that the dolphins weren't ready. After taking my 4 year old in with the dolphins for about 15 minutes, we were again waiting for the boat to leave (older kids and adults that were tall enough... More
