Get the most out of your visit to Ocean World in Puerto Plata with this combination program that includes a Shark Encounter and a Dolphin Encounter. Under the careful supervision of trained staff members, participants can hold, feed and even swim with a small school of adult nurse sharks—a rare opportunity to meet nature on its own breathtaking terms. You’ll also interact with dolphins trained to kiss, hug and ‘dance’ for your entertainment. Round-trip bus transfer, safety briefings, and Ocean World admission with snorkeling equipment are included.
  • Encounter with dolphins and sharks
  • Up-close opportunity to touch, feed and play with the animals
  • Snorkeling adventure
  • Professional trainers
  • Hotel pickup and dropoff
Use your complimentary bus transfer (departing from most Puerto Plata, Playa Dorada, Cofresi and Maimon hotels) to reach Ocean World in Puerto Plata and check in prior to your prebooked Shark Encounter and Dolphin Encounter. At your selected time, start each 30-minute program with an orientation and safety briefing provided by an expert trainer. 
Admission to Ocean World is included; go swimming in the Pirate's Pool or use provided snorkeling equipment to explore the Tropical Reef Aquarium, check out the exhibits and wildlife programs, or simply relax on a provided lounge chair at Dolphin Beach.
When you’re ready to depart, use your bus transfer for return hotel transport.

Shark Encounter
Of all marine creatures, none is more fearsome than the shark. Ocean World is the only marine encounter park in the world to offer guests the opportunity to hold, touch, feed and even swim with nurse sharks. These magnificent creatures will amaze you with their sandpapery skin and fearsome teeth, but don’t worry—these awe-inspiring fish have a relaxed attitude toward human visitors! 
Dolphin EncounterAlthough not a swim program, the Dolphin Encounter offers an up-close-and-personal opportunity for participants to touch these intelligent marine mammals in the safety and comfort of waist-deep water. Under the trainer’s supervision, enjoy kisses, hugs and ‘dances’ from your dolphin friend. You can touch a dolphin's smooth skin and feed them some fishy treats, all while posing for once-in-a-lifetime photos.
