We went back in November. Yes it was nice touching the dolphins, yes it was an amazing experience for myself and my husband. However when it came to buying the photos we spent 90$ on around 100 photos? something of the sort. The photos were amazing. I fell in love with them. Each and every single one. Funnily enough, when... More

It was a highlight of our vacation, hey never rushed us and made sure we got the best out this experience. Dolphins looked healthy and were so friendly. Trainers were really nice with the animals and also willing to answer our questions. The fast boat was so much fun! I really recommend this company!

Our group of 3 adults and 2 kids (ages 5 & 8) did the shallow dolphin experience and had a great time. We got to touch the dolphin, get kisses, do hand gestures to make the dolphin clap, sing, splash water, jump and dance. Note that you don't get to actually "swim" with the dolphins in the shallow experience. We... More

Great experience with the dolphins. The speed boat was a lot of fun as well. The snorkeling was OK but we are also scuba divers so it was probably great for non divers.

My boyfriend and I did the royal dolphin swim package at dolphin island this past week. This was the highlight of our trip to the DR. The intense speedboat ride was exhilarating and we enjoyed the ocean waves slapping our faces as we did 360• spins. The shark and stingray tank was neat but those animals hung at the bottom... More

When booking we paid for a ride in a new speedboat but in reality we were taken out in a regular boat and the spreed boat activity was an optional ride separately. The dolphins did not perform all the tricks promised and advertised. I was ripped off, the package was sold at $155 per person totaling $310 for two people,... More

Me and my boyfriend did this on our recent holiday and enjoyed it but would not want to do it again. The tour was sold to us saying that you would be with the dolphins in their natural environment which it wasn't at all. The dolphins were cooped up in small areas that had been 'fenced' off in the sea... More

Do not get me wrong, I had a great day with my friends since it was a first for all of us. But,at the end of our trip we purchased our photos (all 140 unnecessary pictures even though we only liked about 5) on DVD. I am home now in Philadelphia and just discovered that NONE of our pictures are... More

We did the catamaran cruise including the seabed walk and swimming with rays and sharks. I cannot fault this trip. It was booked through a rep at our hotel and the bus collected promptly on the morning of our tour. The boat had a good vibe going on it with friendly staff. The dive itself was amazing and although initially... More

We booked this excursion through our hotel, Barcelo Punta Cana. We've never swam with dolphins before so we were excited to experience this even though it's very pricey. We were picked up by a large open air truck with very loud music. Our hotel was one of the first ones so it took us over an hour to pick everybody... More
