What You Can Expect

Dolphin and Shark Encounter Combo in Puerto Plata

Although not a swim program, the dolphin encounter offers an up-close-and-personal opportunity for guests of all ages to meet these incredible mammals in the safety and comfort of waist deep water. While professional trainers supervise, guests and dolphins will interact in a safe environment. Participants have the chance to touch the dolphin's smooth skin and feed their new friends some fishy treats!

Of all marine creatures, none is more fearsome or more fascinating than the shark! Ocean World is the only marine encounter park in the world to offer guests the chance to hold, touch and explore the deep sea secrets of the nurse shark. Under the careful supervision of trained staff members, participants will hold, feed and ultimately swim with a small school of adult nurse sharks. These magnificent creatures will amaze you with their sandpapery skin, their fearsome teeth and their relaxed attitude towards human visitors, giving you an understanding and an appreciation of this beautiful and awe-inspiring creature that very few people will ever share! This is truly the adventure of a lifetime and a rare opportunity to meet nature on its own breathtaking terms.

Admission is included when you book this interaction program.
