Description

Sharks and Sea Lions! What a Combo!

Begin your shark encounter day with roundtrip transportation from your hotel in Puerto Plata. While at Ocean World, your first encounter includes a 30-minute program with sharks. You will interact safely with these creatures, led by well-trained staff who will allow you to feed, touch and get into the water with real sharks. Then you get another 30 minutes in the presence of a fun-loving sea lion, also having a chance to hug and kiss this magnificent mammal. Take a camera to capture the memories!
