Loved the dolphins! Definitely the highlight of the day. We visited the other bird and animal attractions which were good but nothing compared with the dolphins. The trainers were amazing and it took my breath away.

You can’t leave and re enter. Which is a bit of a pain really!

I didn’t do the dolphin encounter so can’t help on that one. You could pay on the day as it was featured at the ticket desk. Might be best doing online and advance though as the numbers will be limited I’m sure.
