Reviewed 5 July 2014

It was like a little Sea World. The animal shows are great! The ticket lasts all day and you may come and go as you please. They offer swimming with dolphins and being a trainer for a day. Our daughter loved it.

“Fun”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

It was fun. It didn't take all day, the kids enjoyed it and that's all that mattered. Lunch at the grill was good and reasonably priced...$6 for a grilled cheese, fries and a drink. I was surprised that there were no recycling containers. If they have them, I didn't see them.

“Great family Activity!!!!”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

This is a great place to take the kids to see some great shows. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. My Granddaughters and 7 and 10 loved it and got a kiss from the sea lion. The have a magic shop and a magic show I think 3 nights a week that is awesome. I would say it was one thing we did on our vacation that was well worth the cost.

“Fun for all”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Best to go in Morning or late afternoon when not too hot. It is so much fun and kids can actually get close to dolphin or sealion after show . This is a classic that kids will love. I also love the "Feathers and Furry friends" show. It is inside an air-conditioned auditorium and they have dogs, cats, birds all kinds of critters. They also choose volunteers from the audience..and picked my grandson who was 7yrs old to be in a part of show. Must see!!
