We stayed at IC Moorea and the dolphin center is located inside the resort. We did the 1 hour special romance program starting at 9am. Before we entered the water, we were given a short educational intro on different dolphins. The first part was photo shooting with dolphin in shallow water. The second part was watching dolphin in deep water.... More

I have to say, I really enjoyed the short time with the Dolphin, those Dolphin are indeed kinda trapped in a confined place like a cage ( as another couple said to us when we went on 4x4 trip in Bora Bora). The cost was like $160 per person, so not cheap but it i worth it considering how much... More

I recently stayed at the Intercontinental Hotel, Moorea. This where the Dolphin Center is located. Unless you want to be in the water to physically touch and play with the dolphins, you can view everything that the show offers right from the bridge that crosses the dolphin area. So why pay, you can see just as well from the bridge... More

We did the couples dolphin experience! We swam with not only one, but TWO of the amazing creatures. We were educated on differences of dolphins before getting in the water and swimming with them. 100% recommend this experience to others, whether it is for honeymooning or vacation!

We were so happy to be able to see dolphins and to swim with them, but this is nothing else but a circus with these poor animals trapped there made into their personal money makers. Really awful, trapped in small confined places, these animals are imprissoned there and when we asked the staff about the dolphins and if they think... More

For me this was an amazing experience. I have seen dolphins from afar or at parks but never had a chance to get up close and personal. A birthday treat to myself, I mulled over the idea for a day or so, until in the evening I sat by the lagoon hearing the dolphins swim and breathe and woke up... More

I had the Apnea experience - some lessons on the anatomy of dolphins and a few jumps, and the highlights, two underwater pulls. A must.

We did a one one with me and my two kids (3 and 10). It was a pricey, a few hundred. The instructor tried hard to education the kids about dolphins. The dolphin was wonderful and gentle. These dolphins were recuperated from the US navy or were born in captivity. You can see these demonstrations from the bridge. The price... More
