We visited Theater of the Seas with our almost three year old in mid-Dec. We did the general admission (no animal interactions). This is a guided experience, so to see everything you're on their time-line, not your own. That being said, the animal shows are pretty good and educational. The best part is that because this is a smaller venue... More

As a very senior couple looking for something to do in an area of snorkeling and diving (which we don't do) we were very pleasantly surprised at what an enjoyable afternoon we had at Theater of the Sea. We truly expected it to be a tourist trap, but it was truly well worth the stop. The animals are well cared... More

What a beautiful place to visit. My daughter had an absolute blast swimming with the dolphins, Duffy and Stormy. She also had an amazing swim with some nurse sharks. Great family owned fun and some beautiful views.

I have been here twice now, and each time it gets better. The last time was in Sept 2012 and it was very quiet, assume school was in session. We had the bird show to ourselves, and the Dolphins just "popped" out of the water at the dock to look and see who was waiting for the show. Less glitzy... More

Was pleasantly surprised by this attraction. Wasn't sure what the conditions for the animals would be, but the park is beautiful, and the animals seem to have nice habitats. The programs were really good--fun to watch and educational. You get to see a variety of programs involving a tour where you can see sea turtles, sharks, fish, and other animals;... More

I booked the dolphin swim when I was here in the past with my teenage children. They all talked me into joining the swim at the last minute, and I have to admit it was a wonderful thrill and a once in a lifetime experience. The other shows in the park made it a full day. We'll worth the visit.

I had a really nice time! Good for all ages! The park was really pretty. We saw a Parrot Show, a Dophin Show, and Sea Lion Show. Really cute! Plus, there were fish, turtles, bird, sharks....Landscape was beautiful.

It was a windy day so we went with three young children, they were all entertained. Not too hokey, but not fancy either. A fair value for all.

This family-run attraction has several easily-viewed and several interactive marine animal exhibits that are every bit as good as what you might hope to find at a big name marine amusement park - and with attentive, proactive care of the animals which are treated as family members rather than unpaid, expendable staff.
