“Lovely place!”
Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

The animals here are absolutely lovely! The staff are great. We did the royal dolphin swim, including a hour swim with photos and jumps. Swimming with sharks and sting rays for 45 mins. They offer a deal if you buy all photos and DVD from the day it's only $100 dollars. We did this. Lovely photos and DVD is defiantly worth the buy. I did a long 5 hour drive journey from Samana to get there and it was worth every minute. First time I've swam with dolphins and defiantly won't forget It!!!! :)

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Nice day out, we enjoyed it. Be aware you can't use all of the facilities if you only have a day pass and not a dolphin swim. The snorkelling tank was great, and the shows were ok. Iwe thought it to be overpriced, but others really highly rated it that we spoke to!

“Horrible food!”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

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.

“Fantastic !”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

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

“Fantastic in every way”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

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.
