Very interesting and enjoyable place to go with family. Check a bit in advance for the dolphins and sea lions show time, in order to guarantee a good spot view. Not a very big place, but a worth to spend at least 3 hours to see everything, enjoy a good coffee and to see the animals being fed.

My Oma, who lives in Harderwijk is a member and with her membership, she gets a big discount on guest tickets. Without which, it's pretty expensive especially for someone like me who doesn't particularly like animal attractions. I did enjoy what I saw. Even though the shows are entirely in Dutch, they were fun. Our daughter was only 16 months... More

Nice place to visit once or twice. Have been expecting more from show with dolphins, as 30 minutes is not so much indeed. Show with seals was very good though, but 25 minutes is a bit short also. However, we loved to see the underneath aquarium at the end! But a price of 25 EUROs per person with 10 EUROs... More

Very disappointing. I expected much more. Nothing to do there more than 2 hours - and only to see the shows.

The park is small, but there is so much to see and enjoy that you could spend your entire day in the park. There are a lot of shows and it's scheduled in a way that gives you the opportunity to see every show and every animal. Aqua Bella, the dolphinshow, is supposed to be the best of the world.... More

If you like sea life and walruses that can clap their hands, This is the place for you. Especially nice for kids with some education but most of it its animals that do tricks. ( I don't sound to enthusiastic, do I ?.. But go, You'll enjoy it )

In my opinion it was very very expensive at €27 each. There was no available parking near by, granted it was a very very busy day which was one of the main reasons i didnt like it. The cue for the dolphin show was huge, but it managed to fit everyone in. I stood in line to get the small... More

We were there for about 6 hours. The kids loved the shows, especially the main Dolphin attraction which is astounding. There are long lines to the main attractions so plan your visit accordingly - be ready at the attraction site 20 minutes before time to be sure to get in. There are many places to just sit and kick back,... More
