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

We visited the dolphins daily during our wonderful stay at the Intercontinental & loved every minute. The trainers are amazing & one has worked with the dolphins for 20 years so the love for these intelligent creatures is evident.

We chose to stay at another hotel in Moorea because my wife did not want to stay in a place that houses captive dolphins. However, I did stop by just so I could say I saw the facility and could make an informed decision for myself. I am not the animal lover that my wife is, but frankly I was... More

We intended to join our daughter in the dolphin swim adventure until we realized the cost of roughly $500 USD per person for an hour of interaction as well as the video and photographs of your experience. Our daughter, who is a confident swimmer, was able to swim under water with the beautiful rescued dolphins who were previously Navy dolphins... More

I went to swim with the dolphins, however, I doubt about the educational value of a dolphin center that keeps dolphins in captivity. i read a bit about dolphins and i feel that dolphins are better off in the wild than in a zoo, that makes money. This dolphin center does better than others, ok, but this is nothing but... More

Here is an activity that you must do and if you are staying at the InterContinental in Moorea the Dolphin Quest is right in the hotel a must do and if you have grown kids they will love it, save up for it cause it's worth every franc

If you want a picture op with some very contained dolphins then this is it, if you care about dolphins, then boycott this.
