I do not believe in keeping dolphins from their wild. I would not visit any dolphin centre. My husband thought it was good.

I read bad comments about it. But wanted to give it a try. Just the first contact I had and didnt go there.
I wanted 2 programs - like a swimming with Dolphins and a meet and greet. It should be around 50.000xpf and i just got on my email that the cost is 72.000xpf. After like 3 emails Ive got an email that this was "unfortunately" a mistake.
I dont trust this company and rather go for Lagoonarium Moorea. Much better and u just pay the tenth of the price at the Dolphins area.

Extremely friendly staff, very informative. Had gone on Dr Poole's whale watching tour and he explained how dolphins in captivity were starved as babies to learn to eat dead fish which they do not do naturally as a species.. but heard the other side of the coin here, where one of the dolphins still performing and jumping was 35 years old, 10 years older than their life span because of the medical attention they get. The swim was fantastic and staying at the IC, everyone there saw the dolphins every day and i am sure felt closer to them with better understanding and connection.

This is a fantastic experience, especially for anyone coming from somewhere that they'll never be this close to dolphins again. The more expensive packages allow you to hold onto the dolphin and swim underwater with them. It's a serious investment, but worth it if you're looking to create a memory.

While the grounds of the intercontinental are not the best, this attraction is a must-do for all ages. Being able to play, touch and interact with these dolphins will be a memory that I will cherish for years to come!
