Encounter with the dolphins was a sweet experience. Kissed them, fed them fish, hugged them. Trainers talked about each of the two dolphins, and answered all our questions. The ticket price was high. However, we had access to the rest of the park. Enjoyed all the shows and animals and mammals. Observed children having a ball! BK from Marietta, GA

We swam with Flippers son, kissed other dolphins and petted them. Awesome dolphin and Killer whale show. You pretty much get soaked at most of them!

This is a nice place to see sea life. The food is over priced. The tanks for the shows are small. You can see the shows in half a day. The cost is a lot for a place that is falling apart.
