    Nurse sharks, sea lions, and dolphins.
    We loved our excursion here! Everything is very clean, and we believe it was worth the price. The only reason it’s 4 stars and not 5 is because you aren’t allowed to take your own pictures, and if you want to buy the ones they take it is $15 per picture.

    Fun times for all ages.
    I went with my parents and my wife during my last visit to Puerto Plata. We had the opportunity to see multiple shows like the dolphin show, the sea lions show, and the tropical bird show. We were also allowed to snorkel in a tropical reef aquarium and fed exotic tropical birds. Their facilities were clean and the surroundings very well maintained. All staff were friendly and helpful. The complex also has a small beach, a freshwater pool, a bar with snacks, a restaurant, and a buffet. They also have a gift shop. Keep in mind that entrance fees are different between tourists and nationals. We had a good time so I'd recommend this place.

    Nice family excursion
    This was a nice family excursion we took on one of our cruise stops. The sea lion presentation was the only one we attended. We explored the entire park while we were there. The beach next door was the major draw for us. We got to have a fun educational experience with our 4 young kids and then we cooled off at the nice beach next door. The adventure park is older and some of the buildings show their age, but there is plenty to see and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable.

    Got kissed by a sea lion and I liked it
    We did the excursion from a cruise. We chose the sea lion excursion. I got kissed by one and I liked it. We also had time to see the dolphin show and the seal lion show. Both were so amazing. The facility itself was laid out nicely and we visited some other exhibits, time allowing.

    Amazing place, awesome experience, would recommend
    We did this as an excursion, and it was absolutely fantastic! Our whole time there was planned out, and we didn't waste a minute of being there. Swam with the dolphins (pictures were reasonably priced), saw the dolphin show, fed the love birds, got in the macaw enclosure, went on a snorkeling adventure, had an amazing included buffet style lunch, and saw the sea lion show. The park was clean, uniquely laid out, has ramps instead of stairs, and was just honestly a beautiful place. They also had wifi on the bus that took us there, and in the park. Would 100% recommend this place.

    A Day at Ocean World with the Dolphins
    We booked the VIP dolphin excursion through Carnival Cruise Line. In addition to a lot of perks, towels, lockers, and a delicious, welcome drink, our dedicated tour guide, Mairely Gonzalez, throughout the day. She was awesome! The dolphin team spent a tremendous amount of time with our small group of 8 people. Kudos to Pedro, Tito, Eli, & Osboldo. The interaction with the dolphins and their trainers made me feel comfortable in the water to participate as a non-swimmer. The interaction in the birdhouse was nice and the Parakeet show was quite entertaining to watch their antics. They’re very smart. The dolphin show was the highlight. That snorkeling experience was about 15 to 20 minutes but, if you’re looking to have a longer experience, I would recommend doing a snorkeling excursion. The photos and videos taken for the dolphin excursion captured everything from start to finish and also included any pictures taken with Parakeets was reasonably priced for the entire package. Highly recommend this excursion, and would definitely do it again.

    Love this place
    Our first time here and we loved it, we will definitely be back! So much to do and see, beautiful grounds, so many animals. Both our 4 year old and the all the adults enjoyed it. We especially enjoyed our time with the dolphins and getting to interact with them.

    Good Day
    The Water Slides were closed which was very disappointing. Had a great day. Lunch buffet was included. The grand girls, 13 and 10 enjoyed the day. We did the shark snorkeling which was expensive. 60$ usd and wasnt worth the money.. Overall was a great day. Favourite part was feeding the birds and the dolphin swim.

    Fun Day Trip!
    Pretty cool place and a great way to spend a day or just a few hours. Think of SeaWorld, but much smaller and in the Caribbean. Shows are included and they have a few to choose from. You can pay extra for more personalized animal encounters if you’d like. Our entry fee included a buffet lunch that was decent too. We really enjoyed feeding the lovebirds…what a great experience! Ocean World offers a snorkeling “pool” with tons of fish as well as a nice looking beach and waterslides. We were staying locally, had our own beach and snorkeling, so we just spent some time enjoying the shows. This place would make a cruise ship excursion!

On the northern coast of the lush Dominican Republic lies the watery wonderland known as Ocean World. It's a place where excitement meets serenity, where laughter fills the air, and crystal-clear waters beckon endless fun.

The moment you step foot into Ocean World, you're plunged into a world of joy and adventure. The park's layout is a water-lover's dream, with twisty slides cutting through tropical waterfalls and calm pools perfect for chilling out.

For adrenaline junkies, there are high-speed slides that defy gravity, while the little ones can splash around in specially designed areas just for them, where they can play and paddle in a safe and fun environment.

But Ocean World isn't just a water park; it's a full-on entertainment and education destination. Visitors have the unique chance to interact with a variety of marine life in the spectacular underwater habitat. From swimming with dolphins to feeding sharks, each experience is a lesson in respect and awe for the natural world around us.

And after a day filled with fun under the Caribbean sun, guests can kick back in the resort's luxurious facilities, offering a wide range of services and amenities to ensure an unforgettable stay. From delicious dining options to rejuvenating spa treatments, Ocean World takes care of every aspect of the traveler's experience.

In a nutshell, Ocean World is more than just a water park; it's an oasis of fun, learning, and relaxation in the heart of the Caribbean. Whether you're seeking extreme thrills or moments of tranquility, this is where your vacation dreams come true.

Absolutely amazing
Great packages and we did the dolphin swim, nurse shark swim, snorkelling and so much more and it was all absolutely outstanding. Also great photo packages and buffet meal. All great value.
An absolutely amazing place and all the staff were so friendly and helpful. All the animals looked well looked after and the park was amazingly well staffed, clean and child friendly.
Thank you to everyone for making it such a great experience.

Went here on a cruise excursion and had a good time! The folks were friendly, the animals seemed well treated and there was enough to fill the day. Although I would consider brining cash only. At some point on our ride back, Likely as we departed the. Shuttle for the ship, my wallet and phone dropped out of my pocket. Shortly after (within hours) my credit and debit cards were used. I managed to close the credit cards but my bank was unable to verify because phone was lost. A reputable company would have checked around to see if anything was left and returned it to the cruise port. Dropping my stuff? My fault. Fraud? Not my fault.

When talking about our cruise, Ocean World Adventure Park is the crowning jewel of excursions. Our kids absolutely loved it here and so did my wife and I.
+ There is an enclosed beach with some water slides and an inflatable obstacle course.
+Lifeguards are everywhere and life jackets are available for all guests.
+The bird exhibit was SO MUCH FUN. The bird were landing on us and eating the included food. Some of our favorite photos from the entire trip are from the birds exhibit.
+The drinks for the adults are reasonably priced and well made.
+The seal show was so much fun and the kids loved seeing the animals.
+The food court served tasty food and was reasonably priced.
+There are no negatives about this location. It was pretty much perfect!

If you are travelling with kids then this is an outstanding excursion! A perfect place to spend the day!

Absolutely the highlight of our trip! Admission gets you so much more than the excursion you book. Our kids are still talking about how special this spot is! Our only complaint is we could have spent days here.
The dolphin encounter is so much more personal than other ones we have had, even the swim which we witnessed from the beach!
Our youngest is still talking about the love bird aviary which was such a surprising peek! The pools are beautiful, and well staffed by lifeguards, the beach has so many water options slides, water park and tubes.
At the Beach you’re only separated by a netting and a doc from the dolphins and you can see them swimming near you.

I’ve been like 6 times in Ocean World is one of the most enjoyable places in DR to spend time with the family members no matter ages, I took my nieces and nephew my parents and sisters and there are activities available for anyone, the prices are pretty decent and the employees friendly and nice. I totally recommend this water park in any season. 100%

Went as part of an excurison tour. Would have been better off doing this on our own, as when we got there it was just at the time of one of the shows, and we missed that. It's a very short drive from the Puerto Plata cruie port. The five and a half or so hours just isn't long enough - we had time for one show, lunch, and the dolphin encounter. If you buy the photo plus video package for the latter, FYI it's $90 - well worth it, in our opinion, as your own photos and GoPros aren't allowed - but make sure you bring enough cash or your card is cleared for use in a foreign country as there is an ATM on site but it's quite a walk away. Recommended. Really fun!
