Dolphin & Sea Lion Show was good

The aquarium itself is quite small but I did get to pet a Manta Ray, which was really cool. The dolphin and sea lion show nightly at 7:00 was short but it was quite good. My... read more

The sting ray was neat, but unless you were going to swim with dolphins the rest was boring. My mistake was scuba diving first, after that the aquarium wasn't much to look at.

This place is a total rip-off. Don't waste your time/money. Go have an ice cream cone at Hagen Dazs instead.

The aquarium was on the small side in the upscale shopping district in the area. We did not swim with the dolphins or sharks, which obviously jades my review. Some of the exhibits were empty or mis-labled.

My kids, 12 & 9 quite liked it. Mony the Sea Lion stole the show. She was pretty cute!!! Not bad for $14.00 per person,... More

We booked this excursion through our hotel (Hard Rock) and used our "resort credits" to pay for it. For our family of five (three kids, ages 8, 11 and 13) it was valued at $645 (cost us *only* 129) using our resort credits. For that price we got to spend about 45 minutes or so in the pool with the... More

Dolphins themselves and especially their way of interacting with human beings can not be described in simple written words, it gives you so many positive emotions! Drawback- prices for the photos are unreasonably high.

We paid $109 each for what ended up being about a 30-minute session in the pool. Petting the dolphin & being towed by its dorsal fin was cool, but being charged $119 for a DVD with pictures of our brief visit was outrageous. Next time we will definitely go elsewhere.

Very nice place to spend some hours with dolphins. The animals were really nice and we were enjoying swimming with dolphins. Excellent experience for all.

Small aquarium, but you get to pet sting rays so just for that it's worth the experience. There is also a dolphin show and you can watch the dolphin experiences from a bridge above the tanks. We went back for our own dolphin ride the next day. The dolphin experience was very short and there ended up being 14 people... More

We went to this aquarium for one reason, and that was swimming with the dolphins. That was great, especially our kids of 6 and 8 years loved it.
