What You Can Expect

Shark Encounter at Ocean World

An experience like no other!

If you’ve dreamed of swimming alongside ocean predators this Shark Encounter at Ocean World is just for you! Experience the thrill of swimming alongside one of the most fascinating marine creatures—the nurse shark—at the only park on earth to offer this unique encounter. Hold, touch, feed and float with these underwater animals under the close supervision of trained staff. These magnificent creatures—some as long as 7-feet!—will impress you with their sandpaper-like skin and ease around humans. It’s a rare opportunity to meet nature on its own terms and sure to be an awe-inspiring experience.

The truly inspired can opt to combine the nurse shark encounter with a dolphin swim for a full day of underwater excitement. The most popular program at Ocean World, the dolphin swim puts you right up close to these playful marine mammals. Spend 30 minutes swimming, hugging, feeding and petting these incredible animlas and finish with a dorsal fin tow.

This was a once in a lifetime experience. Well worth the money and a shuttle picked us up at the lobby of our hotel, dropped us off at the front of ocean world, and returned us the same way. Everyone was extremely friendly and we even paid $60 to upgrade. On top of that, our pictures and DVD were delivered to our hotel the following day. Would definitely do it again.

An absolutely incredible experience. The Stingrays were surprisingly forceful creatures, yet jelly like and elegant. Be warned, you may end up being part of the shark show, but it is an enjoyable experience. I would do it again. Worth every penny!

The whole experience from booking to the actual experience was fantastic. I would highly recommend the trip to anyone visiting the north Dominican Republic. It was one of the best days of our lives.
