Ocean World Adventure Park, Puerto Plata, Puerto Plata

Must see · Aquarium · Zoo / Aquarium
Ocean World Adventure Park, Puerto Plata combines close encounters with marine life by day with thrilling song-and-dance shows by costumed performers at night. The main attraction here remains swimming with dolphins, but you can also feed and pet sea lions and wade with docile sharks. Sign up for a behind-the-scenes tour to learn how the adventure park cares for its residents. At night, fill up at the onsite bistro before taking in a whirlwind show featuring 30 dancers alternating between 120 elaborate costumes. If you come for both the animal encounters and evening show, head to the terrace for a colorful sunset in between.

  • Chose this for a shore excursion. Have taken 25 cruises and this was one of the best excursions. The facility is small but it is clean, layed out well and the staff is super friendly. Great food and drinks. Saw the sea lion show, dolphin show and swam with the dolphins. I wish we would have had more time. If I'm on a cruise that stops at this port again, I will book another excursion. Check them out.
  • It was the greatest experiencie ever. Excellent adventure and very cool for a day family. I just love every thing.
  • Paid $109.90 for three and a half hours and to be dragged around the park like a dog on a leash. Ask them to stop so I can use the bathroom!. Most of the attractions were closed to us. Bought a photo from Ocean World which they damaged and not refuse to replace! Do not waste your time and money with this place! Even doing nothing is better than going here!
  • If your looking for a park like we have in north america..this is Not it. However for what it was, it was good.. 5 hours was plenty of time. The birds where fantastic.
  • This place was amazing! We visited on a cruise excursion and it was a perfect day activity! Their swimming with the dolphins experience was excellent! They split everyone into small groups and each group worked with 2 dolphins and 2 trainers. We were educated on the anatomy of the dolphins and informed as to how to act and react once we were in the water with them. Once we were in the water, we had plenty of fun and interaction with the dolphins. They even had the dolphins gently push us through the water. We also saw the sea lion show (which was included in the price). The show was well done and very entertaining! Lastly, we snorkeled around their man-made reef (again, this was free with admission). The kids loved it and didn't want to get out. I can't say enough good things about this park. We had a great time there!
