Ocean World Adventure Park, Puerto Plata

4.1
#1 of 9 in Theme Parks in Dominican Republic
Ocean World Adventure Park 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.

  • I went to Ocean World yesterday and did the Shark Encounter! Although it was a fun park I wish there was more to do and also was slightly disappointed in the pictures that I got with the shark. Most of them you couldn't even see the shark and there were no pictures of me swimming with them. Other than that the shows were fun and the lunch was great!!!
  • You better visit Puerto Plata and make a family stop here... Staff was very nice and diligent, everything is well organized so you can enjoy every show in the program. Kids will love it a lot. Tips: 1) Party of 5... get the picture package as a group (80-100 usd for 60+ pictures + video). Single picture cost 15 usd. 2) Food was really good and you can serve as much as you like. 3) If you're going to meet or swim with the Dolphins, get a couple of minutes earlier... baby dolphins like to play throwing rocks, it was really fun.
  • We purchased the least expensive visit, and we had a blast. We were able to snorkel, swim in pools, swim in the bay, see really cool dolphin and river otter shows. The bird area was a great time too!
  • Hello, This place is fantastic, you can enjoy so much. Has a lot Animals Shows. You have time between presentations to dive and enjoy with all family members. Tremendous support and security all time. All pools and beaches are supervised using Lifeguards and Security members. The restaurant has fast food and snacks. All place is available to visit in wet wear. There is different plans to stay half or full day on park. All hotel in the Puerto Plata area has local free transport to the park.
  • Really had a wonderful time here! Wish my ship had stayed longer in port. Spent quality time interacting with the dolphins, and the water is very clean. Loved the sea lions, and got my picture taken with one! Also really enjoyed the aviary with the lovebirds! Well worth the price
