The experience is very good but all the pictures must be buyed with the local photographers, which make the price goes to stratosphere.

Our children loved this experience!
Would have appreciated a bit more sympathy from the guy who took care of our group during the show though.
But it's always a pleasure to be so close to these animals!

Very nice activities. Great for children and adults.
But voucher no provided a valid local number to call... if you don't call in local number you lost your schedule. When I called they check and my name is not in the schedule!!!!! Very bad organization.
They don't accept own cameras and pictures are so expensive 180 for family with dolphin... only includes 3 paper pictures and one cd with all pics.

Make sure you understand you do NOT swim with the dolphins. You get to stand there and touch them. To swim with them, you have to pay an extra 30-40. And you get pictures taken with the dolphins. 40 for 1 picture. 125 all. I understand the point in business is to make money but man, that seems a little steep for me.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better July 2015

they wouldn't allow phones or cameras, and forced you to accept their photo terms. the terms were all or nothing...not affordable and could not purchase single photos or mugs..... guide not friendly or patient either. THE DOLPHINS, HOWEVER WERE FANTASTIC......

1 star rating: I do not recommend this October 2015

I tought it was on the sea, but it is located at Punca Cana Downtown.

It is basically a big pool with dolphins inclosured to that.

I dont like this kind of animal exploration...

But the dolphins are great, smart and docile.

Another big negative issue are the extorsive prices to take pictures just in a cd, otherwise: U 140.00 for 5 digital photos!!! Or U 35.00 to take just one!

And they dont even film anything, just take pictures.

And, of course, you cant get your GoPro or similar with you.
