“10 Dolphins at this park stolen from the Sea after their family were slaughtered!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

10 of the dolphins at this 'entertainment' park were chased into a cove in Taiji, Japan.

The one's deemed fit enough by 'trainers' were bought whilst the rest of the Dolphin family were brutally slaughtered in from of the captured dolphins eyes.

They swam in the blood of their dead families.

The ‘trainers’ watched as this all happened.

Before you pay any money to this 'attraction' educate yourself on what you are paying for.

“horrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

These dolphins were stolen and the rest of their pods slaughtered in Taiji, Japan. They do not belong in small tanks performing for people. They belong with their families in the ocean. BOYCOTT all marine parks that use marine mammals for entertainment purposes. please.

“Park contributes to Taiji dolphin slaughters !”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

10 of the dolphins at this park were stolen from the wild ! Once living with their families, in their home , the ocean. Now destined for a life of captivity ! All for the sake of entertainment . Taiji fishermen slaughter 100's of dolphin and other small cetaceans every year . The 'pretty' ones are picked and plucked from the wild and end up in places like this. This is wrong and must stop. !!!

“It's a pity...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Unfortunately I had the opportunity to know that, at least 10 of dolphins of this park where brought from Taiji in Japan. So it certain that this 10 dolphins were brought alive here while many others were killed in a very cruel and inhumane fashion. I rather suggest other places to see dolphins, like near the sea, instead of this park.
