Love dolphins , it was really organized and worth the trip. When you book this just make sure you have transportation included. The dolphins are really amazing, except to get the memories and/or pictures of it all is really expensive. In my opinion at least.

There was plenty of time in the water with the dolphin. Wonderful experience. And the Radikal boat ride was fun too. But I wanted to warn you of the one thing that kind of put a damper on our morning. After you're in the water with the dolphin, they really push you to get into the water with a nurse... More

The Dolphin Island excursion was fun if you are interested in seeing the dolphins. It was interesting how they were kept in the enclosure out in the sea since that was different from other dolphin interactions I've done. It was good that the price included the jet boat ride which was a blast as well as snorkeling in the enclosure... More

It was my first time in Punta Cana as well as my first time swimming with dolphins. I did the Royal swim which cost $195 but I thought was worth the money, I was taken on the speed boat ride, took a picture with a nurse shark (I was a little uncomfortable here as they kept flipping the shark on...

On a half-day snorkeling tour, our boat captain told us that we first were going to see the dolphins. This elicited cheers from the 6 children on our boat... until we got there. The enclosure is a small, rusty cage through which we could indeed see dolphins surfacing as they swam around and around in small circles. One of the... More

I went on this excursion from my hotel. I went on my own and I was well looked after. The staff were lovely and we got more than I realised I would. The beach we travelled from was gorgeous and was only a short boat ride to the sea where the dolphins are. Swimming with the dolphin was on my... More

This was a bucket list thing for me but it exceeded my expectations by a mile. The staff was attentive and went out of their way to provide the most interactive experience. The Dolphins were well trained, well taken care of and actually looked like they were having fun too. This tour is well worth the money and I highly... More

Our first any probably only time in Punta Cana. Booked an excursion through the resort that was supposed to be a sailboat catamaran to a place to swim with nurse sharks. Through mix-ups, language barriers, over-booking or whatnot, my party and several others wound up being bussed off property to a sketchy place where we boarded a motorized party catamaran... More
