This was an unforgettable experience. The chance to swim and interact with Dolphins. This has been a life long dream of mine. The staff and trainers told us everything about the animals and how they are cared for and the support they give to preserving them in the wild. I would advise everyone to visit and swim. Its a dream... More

At Bahar Ic-Caghaq, Malta. If travelling by bus, be careful to get off at the stop just before the park! The park was small and welcoming and the staff were very friendly and helpful. There weren't many visitors on the day we visited and the staff made sure that everyone who wanted to was able to take photos with the... More

My daughter and I visited this park. I am ambivalent about visiting such places but since they are still in operation I usually visit as my children enjoy. It was lovely to see the sealions and dolphins although I couldn't help wondering should it happen! You can arrange to swim with dolphins too (minimum age 8 I think) Anyway it... More

I have visited Marine Park few years ago and I'm horrified because it is listed among the most "cruellest" destinations by PETA!!! Do you really want to teach your kids that animal cruelty is OK and we should pay for it??? These animals have been kidnapped from the open ocean NOT rescued as trainers say; are kept in terrible conditions,... More

Recommend a multi-show ticket to see all that the park has. 2 of our party bought a dolphin swim and although it is quite expensive at EUR120 each it was thoroughly enjoyed. The park personnel are friendly and accommodating - particularly in the bird show and when you feed the turtles and birds.

We had a lovely day at the park, we have just been today. We both swam with the dolphins which was highly enjoyable and a once in a lifetime experience. We spent around 30 minutes in the pool. The sea lion show and dolphin show were also good, I liked the fact they showed behaviours they have taught the animals... More

There are 3 live shows that were really good. You can tell the animals are kept healthy, and are loved very much by the staff. The parrot show was the first one. Done lots of tricks and took lots of photos with them. 2nd show was the sea lions. Me and my family were crying with laughter at their act-... More

My 17 month son needed a break from the beach so I searched online for child friendly attractions and came across this marine park. Even though I read the negative reviews that the park was overpriced and boring I took the chance because there is not a lot to do in Malta and as my son's attention span is short... More

Paid the 137 Euro's for the "Swim with Dolphins" experience, plus photo's. This is expensive...a family of 4 would be paying 550 euro's!... is it worth it? yes, if you can afford it. is it value for money? Perhaps not... you get about half an hour in the pool, of which the first 10 minutes is posed photo's with the... More
