They really try very hard to present an exciting and informative show for everyone. It's a shame it is soo hot you can't wait to get into the air conditioning. Wear a hat and carry a fan!!

I actually went here one weekend on a trip that we were taking to Islamorada. We thought it would be kind of cool. I was a bit surprised to find that the gate fee was as pricey as it was. Not theme park expensive but still kind of pricey. The park was much smaller than I expected but what I... More

I loved the family like atmosphere here! Very small but could do in a half of a day! They have all the shows lined up so you don't miss any. Everyone was very nice and informative. We also swam with the dolphins that is something everyone should do at least once in their lifetime!!! They have other animals you can... More

My husband and I thought our young daughter would like to see some marine life up close and personal so we ventured here. It's OK.....but really dated and small and not enough to see considering they charge $31.95 per person! Very disappointed. On a side note, there was an elderly Spanish woman who was too busy on the phone in... More

It was nice, lots of animals for the littler ones to see. It doesn't take to long to go through, just dress for the weather and don't forget the shades!

The dolphin swim was great but you have to share the experience with other people who are not in your party if you don't have enough people in your party. There was only two of us in our party so we went out with 7 other people.

Dear Russ, I am sorry that your visit was not what you had expected and would like to address your concerns. First of all, I am not sure who you spoke to in reservations, but whoever it was is not a part of the animal care staff and unfortunately gave you incorrect information. In our brochure and on our website... More

The theatre is amazing! The swim with dolphins was great, in the theatre you can see many different animals, the staff is very kind. I definitely suggest a visit, but reserve the whole day to spend there (there is really a lot to see and experience)!

My family had a great time, my 6yr old daughter was excited by so many hands of experiences available. The little lagoon was just a nice touch to cool of and try something new. We will go back to do different animal encounters..

We had a great time here. I hope to return one day. All of the shows were very informative. We enjoyed the animals. The staff was friendly and welcomed questions. We regret not bringing our suits for the dolphin to swim with the parrot fish. It was worth the money spent.
