Ocean World Marina

A Boater's Playground in Tropical Paradise


Ocean World Marina is the ultimate cruising destination in the Dominican Republic. Located on Confresi Beach on the north coast of the Island of Hispaniola, it is just minutes from the resort town of Puerto Plata, and the only full-service marina to be found between the Florida/Bahamas area and the Puerto Rico/Eastern Caribbean. The property is also home to Ocean World Adventure Park and a world-class casino. Needless to say, there is truly something for everyone.The marina offers 104 slips that accommodate boats up to 250 feet and roofed dry-rack storage for 200 boats up to 32 feet in length. First-class amenities include a spa, salon, gym, gift shop, car rentals and a concierge service. Ocean World is an official port of entry for the Dominican Republic, with navy, customs and immigration facilities on-site, a bonus convenience for visitors. Activities abound and include golfing, fishing, horseback riding and even white-water rafting. Scuba divers can explore shimmering reefs, shipwrecks, underwater gardens and canyons in the warm turquoise waters. Ocean World Adventure Park boasts the largest man-made dolphin habitat in the world. Guests can interact with marine animals and swim with - and pet and feed - dolphins, sea lions, sharks and stingrays. Walk through the park's tropical rain forest and spot exotic tropical birds. At Tiger Grotto you can get wild and take a protected swim alongside these ferocious cats.

When the sun is setting, move indoors for some gaming at Ocean World Casino. Slots and table games supply Las Vegas excitement in a luxury setting. The Bravissimo Show is a dance review with 30 dancers in vibrant costumes moving to Caribbean rhythms. The Lighthouse Lounge & Disco is on the top floor of the casino and a terrific place to party and dance with a 360-degree view of the resort. Restaurants include the Poseidon, which has a stellar menu and an extensive wine list and overlooks the marina and pool. Ocean View Terrace has a more relaxed atmosphere and is a popular meeting place for locals as well as tourists. Grab a bite to eat, shoot some pool, and hear some great tunes.

Charter boats are readily available for fishing, snorkeling and sightseeing, and the resort is just 25 minutes from the Puerto Plata airport. Visitors can arrive by water, land or air, making Ocean World a fantastic venue for destination weddings, special social and business events and family reunions. Whether you travel alone or with a group, you will be pampered and thoroughly entertained during your stay at Ocean World Marina.
