Dolphin Swim Programs, Punta Cana, DR

Swimming with dolphins punta cana

Swimming with dolphins is special, no matter where you do it. But in Punta Cana, it’seven more so. That’s because, unlike other facilities, where you can spot the swim arena as soon as you enter the facility, Punta Cana’s dolphin swim arena is out in a brand new state of the art facility! Getting there requires a short bus ride. Instead of swimming in the ocean where you don’t know what kind of creatures you will interact with – you’ll interact with dolphins in their natural salt water pool, an enclosed safe pool with sparkling clear water!

Once you disembark the bus or taxi and slip into that warm water (that’s only waist deep) the trainers will offer some fascinating fun facts about dolphins, and then… you’ll get to meet them in person. Your time with these amazing creatures will be unforgettable,mostly because you’ll be able to meet the trainers and start swimming with them. You might want to put your head under the water so you can get a good look at them beneath the ocean’s surface.

You’ll also have plenty of photo ops with your new best pals; you know, the kind of photos that will make your friends and family back home extremely jealous. The facility even has videographers on site who will, if you’d like, capture your interaction on video and send you home with your own DVD, so you can watch anytime and remind yourself that magic is real.
