Ocean World Adventure Park in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic makes for an amazing family adventure day. This is a great family stop during your vacation and you’ll be able to make a day of it as there is so much to see and do. Ocean World allows families to interact with Patagonian sea lions, stingrays, sharks and dolphins up close.
Because this is fun for the whole family, there is a lot to see and do. Take the kids and feel free to be a kid for a day by riding the park’s waterslides, full of slippery fun, and then snorkel in a huge tank full of tropical fish. Then get your family together and become one with nature by swimming with dolphins, cuddling with sea lions and fearlessly petting sharks and stingrays.
If you choose swimming with dolphins, expect to become close friends with the dolphins. It is known that dolphins thoroughly enjoy interacting with humans. Dolphins love human attention and will dance, talk, kiss and play with you as you rub and feed them.
When getting into the water with sharks and stingrays, you’ll become amazed with how beautiful they are up close. Don’t be afraid as these sharks and stingrays have been raised with humans and are not strangers to swimming with people. But if that’s not your first or second choice, check out the sea lions. Getting to interact with sea lions is truly wonderful. These sea lions are sweet creatures who love to play, hug and kiss and will provide a very entertaining show.
It’s not exactly a secret but if you’re willing to pay a little extra, you can take a behind the scenes tour of Ocean World. Hanging out with Ocean World’s educated, fun-loving staff, you’ll get the firsthand experience of being close to these creatures and what it’s like to live with these animals every day.
Nightlife at Ocean World offers beautiful views, unlimited drinks and a casino. The very popular Bravissimo Show provides adults 18 years and older with a Las Vegas style/Copacabana-esque dance show. You and your group won’t want to miss an unforgettable evening filled with superb entertainment. Be sure to make plans to stay in advance because it will be worth it. It’s an entertaining and fun filled evening with beautiful island music, exquisite food and a professionally coordinated musical performance by costumed dancers sharing a view of the world’s different cultures.
