  • The only reason to go is if you want a dolphin or sea lion encounter. Otherwise, the kiddie pool smells like urine, the water at the beach is dirty and you have to pay extra for the water slide.  more »
  • They have four shows at repeated times, so you will not miss any. Buffet is ok. The waterpark is an excellent day trip for a family. Best shows are the dolphins and the seals. They have a nice bird sa...  more »

  • This place was amazing! We visited on a cruise excursion and it was a perfect day activity! Their swimming with the dolphins experience was excellent! They split everyone into small groups and each group worked with 2 dolphins and 2 trainers. We were educated on the anatomy of the dolphins and informed as to how to act and react once we were in the water with them. Once we were in the water, we had plenty of fun and interaction with the dolphins. They even had the dolphins gently push us through the water. We also saw the sea lion show (which was included in the price). The show was well done and very entertaining! Lastly, we snorkeled around their man-made reef (again, this was free with admission). The kids loved it and didn't want to get out. I can't say enough good things about this park. We had a great time there!
  • I had been wishing to come for a long time already and for some reason every time I though I could do it, something happened. But, I finally got the chance to not only go but to experience the swimming with the dolphins which was one of my dreams since I was a baby girl. Let me tell you that I was beyond happy, every single animal there looks happy, the dolphins are happy and they are super friendly and stole my heart. The area is beautiful and well taken care of.
