Great way to spend a few hours. The park is small but they have all the popular favorites. The staff is knowledgable and friendly. Do not miss the Dolphin or Sea Lion show! Watching the otters eat is adorable as well.

Went to the Gulfarium with our family of 5 (ages 4-40) and had a great time. Loved the dolphins, the penguins, and otters. Some renovation going on but still a great time.

This was our second trip to Gulfarium...it had not changed much in 2 years. We enjoyed the dolphin and sea lion shows. The animal "chats" are not much. Plan on about 1-2 hours to see it all! This trip our kids tried the dolphin splash encounter and enjoyed it. It was VERY expensive for 15 minutes but hey they got... More

Takes about half a day to see all the animals & a few quick shows. It's a beautiful setting and very clean. My kids really enjoyed it and they learned a few things too.

This is a good attraction if you have kids. Ours liked the dolphin show, but LOVED the sea lion show. They also did an extra interactive session with the dolphins which they enjoyed. The entire property was clean, well kept, and easy to get to. The Gulfarium is a good half day attraction.

Not a huge place but good for the money. I picked the snorkel with stingrays and sharks interaction and it was well worth the money. The trainer, Emily, had the stingrays swim right by us as she fed them and they often bumped us. Emily did a great job explaining how the stingrays actually work and what safety precautions were...

This is a nice little attraction. They do put on a nice dolphin and sea lion show. The seating is a bit small. We ended up standing around the fenced in area for the dolphin show. There are several animal exhibits, but the whole experience will only take 2-3 hours. The ocean is right behind the park which makes a... More

This was our first time at the gulfarium in Fort Walton Beach. We all expected a little bit more for the money we paid. The shows were short and not that good. Food was below average. We had some little kids in our party that wanted to go see the animals so we went. The other animal attractions were not... More

Me and the 2 girls went to kill a couple hours for something to do. We had a great time and they put on a really good dolphin show. The price is right and nice setting with the ocean in the background.
