The first tip I will give is to book online! We waited in a long queue for 25 minutes & this could have been avoided if we booked in advanced. The route isn't as easy to navigate as the map suggests but it's quite nice...More

Dolphins swim +100km each day and therefore belong in the big ocean and not in a cirkus show in a small pool. Please do not support a place that treat dolphins and whales this way.

One of the best in the world with nothing to envy the US aquariums. All the attendants were very nice and helpful. The dolphins show was outstanding. Highly recommended Ricardo

I wasn't there with kids, so I can't say what is it about. But the staff is very friendly and I think that they can explain this for you.
Is it open early November please?
