This is a must see if you like sea creatures. The compound itself isn't that big and it's definitely not Sea World if that is what you were expecting. However they have a lot of educational shows that teach you about the behaviors of the sea lions, sharks, dolphins, sting rays, turtles and flamingos. There are aquariums with different species...

Not a lot to see and do unless you spend more money. Still worth a visit to see the shows and touch a sting ray.

Of course, the dolphin tank is too small and it is a kind of torture for them . Otherwise its a nice attraction and a fun afternoon for a family.

We enjoyed this attraction for an hour. It is located right on the coast which was a little depressing considering the dolphins are captive; however, kids will love it and it was very interactive.

My daughter and wife enjoy the aquarium, Dolphin encounter seemed a bit expensive, so they chose not to go. Overall, they would recommend going

This park covers a large area at the East end of the island. There is a lot of diversity in the fish and sites to dive but more needs to be done to "protect" the dive sites. More permanent mornings to avoid anchorage that destroy the coral, etc. Stronger protections need to be implimented.

The maps make this park look so big but it is actually smaller that you think and doesnt take long to see everything. Costs $21 USD to get in. The sea lion show and dolphin shows are short but fun to watch.
