We didn't swim with the dolphins but we got to see quite a few dolphins in a close proximity. We were told that this is a research site for conservation as opposed to training dolphins for touristic purposes.

Palau is a Marine Sanctuary for Sharks and then they have a Dolphine Prison ??? !!!! This shouldn't happen in Palau. I urge everybody not to support this Dolphin Prison. Dolphins belong to the open ocean !

The dolphins are kept in very small pens and are made to perform the usual tricks for tourists. Horrible.

This is a non-profit sanctuary that uses rescue dolphins as well as those born there for research, as well as a tourist attraction. We went with our daughter, and she was able to participate in the Close encounter as well as the Dolphin Symphony program....More
