Dolphins and sea lions swim at Ocean World: Boasting the largest man-made dolphin habitat in the world, Ocean World is a must-see attraction for everyone visiting the Dominican Republic.
In the Dolphin Swim program you will have the opportunity to swim and play with beautiful Atlantic bottlenose dolphins and will learn about dolphin behavior and discover how Ocean World Adventure Park trainers use hand signals and positive reinforcement to communicate with them.
The Royal Swim program, offers the unique opportunity to participate to a 60 minutes swim session with 2 beautiful bottlenose dolphins. Taking the experience one step further, guests encounter, kiss, hug, pet, and feed dolphins in deep water for an half hour and afterwards the session continues in the beach area for an additional half hour; interacting with dolphins one on one in their environment.
Participants also have the opportunity to combine the interactive swim programs with the Sea lion Encounter or with the Shark Show & Encounter. The first one is a fun program designed to let you meet, touch, feed, pet and play with the clown of the sea: the Patagonian Sea Lion. And in the second one you’ll learn how to safely touch and meet the sharks.
The Trainer for a Day program will ensure a true dolphin trainer's experience. From playing animal chef to interacting with dolphin during a regular program with regular guests!!
