If any of your next family vacations take you to Punta Cana, prepare to meet some of the smartest animals in the world at the Dolphin Island Park. Every member of the family has the chance to swim with dolphins as the trainers explain the lives of these magnificent creatures.
The park is actually a floating platform sitting in the middle of the sea, but you don't have to worry about getting there. A Dolphin Island Park shuttle will pick you up from nearby 5 star hotels & transport you to the docks for departure on one of their boats, reported USA Today.
The whole journey to the platform will accentuate the experience with local music & traditional Dominican drinks on the boat ride, stated Punta Cana DMC. Once you've arrived, hop in the water to mingle & swim with the six dolphins that live in the park.
Those aren't the only sea creatures at Dolphin Island Park either. You can head over to the aquarium to watch sharks & manta rays or take a trip to shore to meet the sea lions. The employees have underwater cameras to capture the whole experience on film, so you can take pictures of your aquatic adventures.
Take a few hours to get away from the exotic beaches to see what lies beneath the surface of the tropical waters & what some of its inhabitants are like. The Dolphin Island Park is for tourists of all ages, making it an attraction the whole family can enjoy. At the end of the day, after you've made some new friends, the shuttle will bring you back to your hotel so you can continue delving into everything else Punta Cana has to offer, both on land & on the water.
