Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
This is a huge rave not only for the Dolphin Island Tour, but also for Viator.com itself! I called with a few questions and concerns. The viator representative I spoke to didn't know the answer, but three way called Punta Cana to find out the information for me before booking. They were nothing but pleasant and everything was exactly as it should've been.
As for the Dolphin Island Tour, it was fantastic. You can tell all the trainers are passionate about what they do and treat the dolphins with the utmost respect and care which was a huge concern of mine. The bus ride was long though. Not gonna lie, the bus ride was about an hour and a half since we stopped at several different resorts to pick up guests. It was okay though since the shuttle was free, I couldn't complain too much. Everything was very clean and new and safe. You get to spend about 1/2 hour in the water with the dolphins in total though. We had about 15 minutes of swimming with the sharks and sting rays and then went over to start our dolphin tour. So "half-day" is mostly referring to the bus ride and waiting around on the beach, which is fine, since they had drinks and snacks available. Sodas were free, alcohol was extra- I think $2 for a bottle.
