The trip was fab, swam with stingrays sharks and the dolphins only downfall was the way over priced photos that they bullied you into getting $90 for some bad pics, but apart from that it was good

We had so much fun! Staff is super friendly, location is gorgeous (of course, you are in the Caribbean sea!) and Audrey, the dolphin, is just adorable! I totally recommend this tour if you are in Punta Cana


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

This tour was amazing! They pick you up at your resort in an open bus so you get to see many sites while traveling to the dolphin excursion. The dolphins are so incredibly friendly and your not rushed while enjoying the swim. Then snorkeling with stingrays and shark was an unexpected plus. A+ tour

The experience was amazing! We were picked up by bus at our hotel, be sure to tell the front desk in advance so they can show you the logo to look for. We took a speed boat to the dolphins and sharks. Spent about an hour there. They will sell you all your professional pictures for $60 for 2 people.

This trip was wonderful- my wife enjoyed it every minute. The staff was very attentive and nice. You can snorkel around nurse sharks and stingrays and other fish, they have snorkels. With the dolphin each couple/person had time to spend with it. Very nice. Highly recommend the trip.
