Incredible Royal Dolphin Swim experience in Puerto Plata, The Dominican Republic. Guests interact, swim and play with two dolphins one on one in their own marine environment for a full hour!
What to Expect
Come to Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic and experience The Royal Dolphin Swim. It is the newest and most exciting dolphin interactive program at Ocean World!
Participants of the new program will have the unique opportunity to participate in a 60 minute swim session with 2 beautiful bottlenose dolphins.
The Royal Swim experience begins with a brief orientation then guests enter the water to learn about dolphin behaviour.
Taking the experience one step further, guests are able to not just encounter, but kiss, hug, pet, and feed dolphins in deep water for half an hour. Afterwards the session continues on the beach area for an additional half hour more. Here guests can interact with dolphins one on one in their own environment.
Playing ball with the dolphins, taking a pectoral ride and a foot-push with a boogey board are all fun features of this fantastic experience.
The Royal Swim program also includes the Day Pass at Ocean World Adventure Park, including all of its attractions, as well as convenient round trip bus transfer from nearby hotels. Boasting the largest man-made dolphin habitat in the world, Ocean World is a must-see attraction for everyone visiting the Dominican Republic.
Ocean World visitors have the opportunity to snorkel in the Tropical Reef Aquarium, learn about marine mammals, feed exotic tropical birds, walk through a tropical rain forest, visit the pirate pool, slide down the waterslides, and observe the Dolphin Show, Shark Show, Sea Lions Show and Tropical Bird Show.
