The dolfin show was great, watching the staff with the dolfins and the seals was wonderful and breath taking.

“Manati Park”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We went to Manati park last saturday and had a good time despite the heavy rain. We watched the dolphin/sea lion show, parrot show and the dancing horses, did not get to see the Tiano show as there was a long wait between the horse show and this one due to the dolphin swim.At this point it really started to rain hard and since we had seen most of the park, we called it a day. Did not do the dolphin swim as I am not sure that it is ever a great experience for the dolphins.
For myself the bus ride was not that scary, although if I had small children with me, the openess of the bus may have been unnerving. It's like a small zoo there, monkeys, goats, lambs, bison, parrots, guinea pigs rabbits and a large lizard display.
On our exit from our bus at arrival time, our driver was sure to advise us of the bus number for our return so it was easy to use thier free transportation.

“Great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

This was a first experience for my husband and I. We enjoyed everything. The shows were cute and fun, and swimming with the dolphins was great! Although, I wish swimming with the dolphins would have been longer :(
