Dolphin Island

If your dream is to swim with one of the ocean’s most graceful creatures, the bottle-nose dolphin, as well as spend time relaxing on beaches or swimming with other marine life then visit the Dolphin Island in Misamis Occidental in Aquamarine Park.

Dolphin island is actually NOT an island. It is a complex that takes care of rescued dolphins, they are sent back to the open sea once they are fit for release in the wild.
