Great place to get close to a dolphin and meet and learn more about these amazing creatures. Several programs to chose from, I did one together with my 3-year old and she really enjoyed it. Passionate staff, very informative. Both photos and a video available after.

Swimming with dolphins that r trapped in s pool where they are feed dead fish in exchange for tricks is not educational

I purchased this for my son and daughter-in-law for their honeymoon. They were staying at a nearby resort and arrangements were made for Moorea to pick them up. Unfortunately, it was not on their detailed itinerary created by their travel agent so they did not know they missed it until much later. If someone came to pick them up (as... More

We got to swim with a dolphin and also learn more about them. The two dolphins in the enclosure were retired dolphins from a zoo.

You must experience the beauty and the power of the dolphins. The staff of the Moorea Dolphin Center are as friendly as their dolphins ...

This was a good place if this is your first time interacting with Dolphins. We have done this activity at the Atlantis, Dubai and weren't super thrilled with this experience. The interaction was limited and by the time you are done with 3 people (2ad, 1ch) you are out of $500. The guy who did the video was great and... More

I was so excited to stay at the hotel with the dolphins. When I got there I went to the lagoon and was shocked how shallow and small the pool is. No dolphin should have to live there. The tricks they did were silly and must bore them to death. And they are separated often from each other . Save... More

We had our two year old with us, so we assumed we'd just be looking at the dolphins, but it turns out he was allowed in with us! Koa (the dolphin) was a big hit with the kids, they love watching the video and still remember his name a few months later. Staff were so friendly and helpful. It was... More

We have done now three dolphin experiences. We only do them at places like this which are safe to the dolphin. This was very enjoyable. They do some education at the beginning and then you go in the water with the dolphin. We did not swim with it, but got to touch it and take pictures. Yes the video and... More

It was really cool to swim along side a dolphin (we swam with Hina) and take pictures, touch, and even kiss the dolphin. I would recommend this if you haven't already done a dolphin excursion. The only downside (I didn't look into this enough) is that you are with a group of people and treading water the entire time. Luckily... More
