This has to be the best experience we've had on a holiday. We paid for the Royal swim $195 per person and worth every penny. There were 6 people in our group and we spent the whole hour in the water interacting with the 2 Dolphins. Lots of stroking the back and bellies, kisses from the clapping and singing. We... More

Our family had a great visit. It did take a long time to get things going at the beginning but after everyone had a chance to get a picture with the seal, things moved quicker. We loved being able to hold the sea lions and sting rays. The snorkeling was also awesome. Would recommend the trip.

While my holidays in Dominican Republic, Punta Cana I had a pleasure to visit the venue of nature and entertainment Dolphine Island. Located in a heart of Punta Cana, very picturesque place with different samples of ocean inhabitants. Truly amazing to interact with dolphins, admire how they follow commands of professional trainers and keep you on the edge of happiness.... More

Visited late July, got to say it was very organised atall but once you got on the boat to the little island it was alrite from there, best bit for me was snorkelling with the sting rays and the Sharks that was really good, the Dolphin experience was also really good but abit boring after a few minutes.

Always been a dream of mine to swim with dolphins. This excursion was by far one of my favorites. You travel out to a floating dock station where you group off and do different things. Swam in a pen with sting rays and docile sharks and fish while snorkeling on top of the water. Then had a blast swimming with... More

This was so beyond worth the money!! The bus picks you up from your hotel brings you to the island where you get on a boat that takes you out to where the Dolphins are at. We paid for the middle package which was $150. I wouldn't even suggest the hundred dollar package because the extra $50 it's so worth... More

Great value for the price. The staff was courteous and engaging; all were safety conscientious. The dolphins seemed well cared for and very friendly for guests. Bonus experiences were the snorkeling and Radikal Jet Boats. Ask for Ricky, he is great!
