For those of you who haven't swam with dolphins, this is a great start in a controlled environment where you will feel safe. Animals are great and company makes it easy for visitors.

The kids loved the dolphins and all the excitement that the dolphins provide. The attendants were good with the kids, loved to watch the dolphins going for the feast and rubbing their undersides.

Clean and fun, even doe the premises are a little old. But overall i'd say it was fair enough to do something different then go to the beach all day everyday
