We were sold a Royal dolphin experience which we were told was 50 minutes with 2 dolphins by yourself. It was actually in the same pool as all of the other experiences so over 40 people with 2 dolphins between the 11 Royal experience clients. Very overpriced and the dolphin had a lot of scars and a sore nose. You... More

And sting rays! Great half day tour on a catamaran. Snuba, snorkel and swim with sharks! Sea lion was entertaining and plenty of mamajuana to drink! Staff was awesome.

Once we got to the resort where the Dolphin swim was, all was great! We sailed a quick 5 minute ride to the island, were greeted by our team and were split into groups. I believe there were 8 in our group. I was kicking myself not taking my iPhone to take pictures (I read reviews they're no allowed) but... More

Its an amazing experience! My son (9) was excited beyond words. I would recommend this tour to anyone. Just dont pay for and "expectator" to come along, cause they cant get close to the dolphins to take pictures. The cd they sell its expensive but its your choice to buy it or not.

My 8 yr old son LOVED this excursion! We paid for the medium priced dolphin experience and rode the fast jet boat, swam with sharks and mantarays and with dolphins. Take all your jewelry, hairbands and store before this trip. They take all the photos and then charge $$$ at end of trip for a CD. It is an expensive... More

Dolphin Island does exactly as it suggests. You get to jump in the water with these beautiful creatures. Whilst in the pool you will see the Dolphins perform tricks and have lots of contact with the animals. Perhaps most memorable was to ride along with the dolphin and you will even receive a kiss! The animals seem to enjoy the... More

My 8 year old and I had a great experience with the dolphins and the program was great. The cost was $115USD/person and was reasonable for the experience. However, you cannot use your own camera and the picture CD was a criminal price. I had expected the CD would cost ~$20-$25. However, the only option is to buy all the... More

We snorkeled with the sharks and stingrays too. There were lots of little tropical fish around the sharks it was so pretty! The photos they took of us were amazing. We... More

We just returned form Punta Cana where we went with the kids to the Dolphin Island expedition. We took the Action package for our 10 and 11 year old kids (USD$155 per person). We were able to negotiate to get in for free and watch the kids in the water with the dolphins from a distance. It is difficult to... More
