Went there for the lesser package but it was still a lot of fun. I think if I were to do it again I would pay a little more to get to do everything.

We were able to pet a dolphin, and even ride on it, although there wasn't an opportunity to swim freely next to the dolphins. It kind of felt like a photo shoot, with each participant having a chance to perform each pose, and... More

Decided to buy and try out this attraction. Bought my price package on the internet site and saved some money (Apparently sale good for October and November only).
