We had a great time at Dolphin Discovery. We upgraded out experience upon arrival. Everyone was helpful and great with the kids. We were very happy with our transportation. It was a van with another group from our resort on the way there and private transportation home. We were dreading having to sit on a bus waiting for other people.... More

We went not knowing what to expect, having read some of the reviews. But we had a fantastic time! Alex the trainer was very informative and made sure everyone was able to experience what they wanted to - we even had the chance to do the foot push twice. The opportunity to meet Dorothy the Manatee was an added bonus!... More

I've been swimming with dolphins before in Puerto plata where the area for Dolphins yes will NEVER be big enough, but was absolutely huge and extremely deep. As me & my partner walked into here we both stood in shock of just how tiny their vicinity is. We didn't even stop to look at the Dolphins for more than 5mins... More

The dolphins were in large pens, and seemed happy. I was worried about feeling guilty, but I didn't need to be. The trainer was very good, and gave us each turns kissing a dolphin, lots of petting, a foot push, and being pulled through the water by the dolphins. The part that I am very unhappy about was half to... More

We booked a trip here via Lomas Travel. Marina is lovely. When we booked we were told there would be no more than 8 in our group, there was 11 which was slightly disappointing tbh. Would have loved more free time with the dolphins if im honest, you don't get to touch them as much as I liked. Photos are... More

We planned our vacation spot around the fact that my daughter wanted so badly to swim with the dolphins. I have nothing but good things to say about this place. We did the Royal Swim with the dolphins. It was well worth the money. The trainer we had, Juan was awesome. You can tell these people truly love what they... More

This was an amazing experience. The trainers were very skilled and you always felt safe. However come with money if you want your pictures as they can be pretty expensive.

We did the tour where we swam with the dolphins, including the belly swim, boogie board push and interactions. We learned about the dolphins and survival in captivity.
