Ocean World Adventure Park, Puerto Plata

4.2
#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.

  • This is a great activity to do by far of the cofresi and life style. In addition, activity was included with my package. I liked this animation there are sharks dolphins and show sea lions that filled out a day and its changes a little air for those who doesn't spend all their stay at the beach. Very pleasant to do with family or friends, especially for young children.

  • I spent the day at the park last week, November, 2017. Had a wonderful time at the dolphin encounter. The entire park is clean, charming and well kept. Staff were very pleasant. Shows were short but nice. The lagoon pool was charming. Don’t go expecting SeaWorld but nice pleasant experience.
  • Best shows ever, the wide variety (of shows) and cheerful energy of the instructors makes them unique. I had an indelible dolphin experience and even tho' I don't know how to swim, I felt safe everytime. Food is good but beverages are SO expensive. The place is big, but the pools are so small.
  • Animal shows are the best from this park. Here you can see Birds, Dolphins and Sea Lions do incredible tricks. Everything was very nice. The Triple Twister was very good. But as always, everything has its bad side. The Artificial Beach inside the park has the most salty water in the universe. The pool is very small. This park receive a lot people every day, and it's not fair to be in a pool full of people when they can build a bigger one. The food was delicious and drinks very expensive.
  • Nice water park. It was fairly easy to get in and out of. It was not crowded when I went but even then getti g into the shows was difficult. The seating was also very uncomfortable. I still enjoyed it though.
  • Very nice experience although very expensive, food included but for the price of all the services should be open buffet the whole day. dont try to take an extra picture from the park with lions or dolphins they are very expensive. the artificial beach inside it's very bad. the pool very deep and small. other than that the activities very spectacular
