Took forever to do the dolphin encounter. They took us in 3 groups and we had to sit and watch the other 2 groups before we got a turn. I thought it was a little disorganized and took longer than it should. We had about 4 different trainers hang around us. Also, my 6 year old did not even get... More

Lots to do, workers are not too pushy. But you are held captive to ballpark priced food & drink. Shark show is just OK. Snorkeling with stingrays is a must-do.

The dolphin swim was a lot of fun and the photos turned out so good. The sting ray exhibit was neat especially the interaction. The snorkeling was ok except there was not many fish. Once again great photos. You will spend a whole day here!

There is a love bird attraction where you go into the... More

The kids loved swimming with the dolphins. Difficulty getting a copy of our pictures that we had purchased. They gave us the run around. Finally we did receive them before we had to board the bus.

Perfect for a family with a 3 1/2 yr old. We thought the falls might be too much for our little guy. Dolphin Cove was a great way to spend half a day. Dolphin encounter is great for toddlers, he was able to touch, kiss and get splashed. Mom went with him and I was able to view from close... More

Great place for kids! My daughter had a great time with swimming with the dolphins. Worth going to. I would combine it with the falls for the day.
