I brought my younger sister to do this activity and it was everything I wanted her to experience. The guide is very kind and friendly and makes you comfortable when swimming with the dolphin. They have someone taking pictures during the activity that you can buy afterwards. Those who watch from the bridge don't have a very good view at... More

It was an amazing experience to be that close to the Dolphins and with a careful explanation of their lives!

lovely experience for the whole family! they have 3 different attractions depending on age. the best one is in my opinion "reve" where you can swim deep with the dolphins, spectacular pictures! Seems to be well run, however very very pricey compared to dolphin experiences in other countries!

My bungalow was right in front the dolphin center, and although we did not participate in a dolphin encounter we got to enjoy them! I have a picture of one jumping so high into the air. Every time we went back to or from our room we passed by the Dolphins and would often stop to watch them.

They says this is a sanctuary for dolphins but if you read the fine print, they are really just there to be weighed (apparently that qualifies as research) and cater to tourists. In such a beautiful part of the world, I cannot imagine being trapped in a tiny area.

We did the apnoe swim with one of the dolphins. Great experiance and one of the "once in a lifetime" things. We got a lot of inormation around the animals the center and their work. It kind of non profit and all revenue goes the turtle hospital right next to the center. We can only recommend to go!!!!!! Claire&Andreas

The Moorea Dolphin Center is fabulous! It is located at the Intercontinental Moorea. They have three bottlenose dolphins, and guests can select from three different programs (one is a shallow water encounter, the second is a deeper water encounter and the third is diving with a dolphin). The attraction is pricey, but worth it! The dolphins are an absolute joy... More

We had an overall enjoyable time. Transfers from our hotel went well. We did the couples experience and there were two other couples with us during the presentation. The guy talked a lot which I didn't like. I just wanted to see the Dolphins. You get a short time to get in the water with them. I thought they should... More
