Took my 8 yr old and 8yr old nephew and they loved it. It was a great time with the kids and they like other things to do there as well.

This was part of a sweepstakes that we won. The interaction with the dolphins was a lot of fun. We danced with them, kissed them, took a belly ride and they also pushed us on a boogie board. I was amazed at what they were able to train these dolphins to do. After I kissed the dolphin the trainer asked... More

We took our 2 and a half old boy to swim with dolphins, unfortunately he was too young so gave us an alternative called dolphin encounter. This was fantastic he got to feed the dolphin kiss hug and dance. Memorable day

We had a blast at the waterslides! We did not do the dolphin encounter, we went specifically for the slides. Some of them were pretty intense! We really enjoyed the ones where you go down on a tube. The small covered slides were a little bit scary but all around a fun day! A bit expensive though. We paid $75... More

We took a 3 year old for a dolphin encounter and it was amazing. Only place that would take a 3 year old as most say 6 years old is the youngest. The price also included free waterpark entry and a sea lion and dolphin show. Well worth it

We took our 4 and 6 year old and got a great rate online. We did the dolphin encounter and it was great being up close with the Dolphins. Our youngest was a little too short for the water height but she got to experience it in our arms. The water park was pretty good. A little run down but... More

We went at 9:30 am before it got too hot. They are well organized for the swimming with the Dolphins. Groups are small and each person gets individual attention. It was the high light of the trip for most of our 8 grand children, ages 7 - 16. Water slides were fun as was the zip lining. Hamburgers were also... More
