We went to Ocean World this past July 2013, we bought our tickects all included at the hotel where we were, when i said all included it means shuttle bus, swin with the dolphin, all the animals shows, food, all day pass. For me the money that we paid for that wasn't worth it, the only thing that my daughter enjoyed was the swin with the dolphin but anything else was not worth it.
The food was horrible, my son get sick and he was vomiting, we asked if somebody could take us to our hotel beause my son didn't feel good and their answer was that noboby was available to take us to the hotel because the next shuttle bus was schedule to going to the hotel in 3 hours, they didn't offer to help us at least to take my son to any emergency facility that they have there and we don't know if they have any because we didn't see it.
One of the worst day of my life.

We went last Monday 3 adults & a 2 year old when we got there we thought it was quite sparse and we would be bored - how wrong we were

Prices when booked via our travel agents which included collection from and drop back to the hotel , lunch and as many goes on the big slide were as follows :

69 Dollars for entry only
109 Dollars for half hour dolphin experience
169 Dollars to swim with the dolphin

Children under 6 are free

There was a series of shows every hour from 9.30am - 4.30pm - Shark, Sea Lion, Dolphin & Bird as well as the opportunity to feed the animals and have your photo's taken

There was areas to sun bathe with loungers and to a lovely pool to swim in

The gift shop which was very reasonable

Two food and drink outlets which were reasonable priced

You could have 5 photos taken with the show animals for 40 dollars

Approx. 40 photos and a half hour dvd recording of our dolphin experience was 100 dollars

The dolphin show was fantastic , the sea lions show hilarious

By the time we had done the Dolphin experience, fed the tigers, had 3 goes on the slide and watched the shows we had run out of time even though there was still lots more to do

Would recommend to everyone

We have just returned from an amazing holiday in Puerto Plata. We visited Ocean World for a day, with the shark and sting ray experience.
It is fantastic value for money, the experience is one which we will never forget. The park was not at all busy, no queue for anything at all and no rip off prices for food and drink. The staff are excellent, the animals and shows were perfect, it is clear that they treat them well and the dolphins and seals have an obvious bond with thier handlers.
Everyone we met said the same - dont visit the area without coming here, it is essential and you will not regret it.
Our son had the best day out of his life as he got to meet a dolphin close up, hand fed sting rays and sharks, swam in the shark pool, has love birds eating out of his hand, swam in a lagoon, went down great water slides and saw amazing shows. ( I have to admit, my wife and i also had the time of our lives - so much better than the overly expensive and commercial Disney)

Do yourself a big favour and book to come here as soon as you can.

We went to ocean world last Sunday, and I can honestly say it was one of the best experiences of my life. We did the dolphin swim and it was fantastic. The trainers were very helpful and made the experience extremely special for us. We then walked around the park and watched the sea lion and macaw show and they were both excellent. The food was great. The dining are got very crowded though but that was to be expected as it was quite busy all day. A fantastic experience and would definitely recommend this to anyone going to puerto plata on holiday.

This was our second trip to Ocean World. The last time was 2009 and I’m glad to see that they keep improving and maintaining their business. The kids absolutely loved every single show, and our favorite is the lovebird’s encounter, where they come eat from your hand. Also being able to be so close to the Toucans and other birds was really amazing for the kids. We did a photo with the Dolphin which you get to touch them and it’s cheaper than the dolphin encounter. Food there is not the best but there is plenty of close by places you can go to if you are driving and just time it correctly if you are at a hotel. I think if you are in Puerto Plata Ocean World is a must see.
