“new experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2012

it was the first time to free dive with dolphins and i simply loved the experience. the guides at the training center are very professional, knowledgable and polite. A session at Dolphin Bay is a must on your trip to Palau.

“Yes to the dolphins and no to the "feel"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2011

It was exciting to see the dolphins (especially for my son), but it seemed there were times the tour was too money oriented for my liking. Don't let that stop you going to see it - it is really quite good, But for mine they let themselves down, especially at $20 each for a group "jumping photo". $80 for a one second family picture is simply too steep.

“The kids had a great time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2008

Myself, my wife, our 7y old son and 5y old daughter visited Dolphins Pacific beginning of October 2008. It was the low season in Palau, so we just checked the bookings on the internet and chose a day with the least people.
We planned to all take the mandatory close encounters program as well as the swim with the dolphins.
We knew that the swim with the dolphins was only allowed from 6y old and that my daughter would not be able to participare, but were surprised to find out that one adult was required to stay with her and that either myself or my wife would also not be able to participate. After some discussions with the friedly staff, they agreed that our daugher could stay with the lady taking care of the drinks shop.
There are 7 dolphins at the centre (2 males and 5 females) that were shipped from Japan. They were looked after by a group of mostly japanese trainers.
The activities are well organised and a lot of care is taken for the well-being of the dolphins. In the swim with the dolphins we were able to touch them and at the end every one of us had a dorsal fin pull.
