“Great Family Day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

Everyone enjoyed our day at Theater of the Sea. Our girls did the Meet The Dolphin program and they had a blast. It was definitely worth the $80. The attractions are small and close together. There was always one going on, so you could jump right in to the action.
Lunch at the grill was a little expensive, but it was convenient to grab it there. You could tell the trainers and employees really cared about the animals and giving a quality show.

“Good Family Adventure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We stopped here on our way from Key West to Key Largo. Lots of marine life to see and the shows were very informative. Unfortunately it rained heavily while we were there so we were only able to see the Parrot and Dolphin Show. Both were really entertaining and my daughter even got to kiss a dolphin. Plan on spending the majority of the day here. Food was pricey and takes a while to make but overall not bad.

“A highlight!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

We came to this place because the Charter we booked in Islamorada was a bust--I will just say it was one "chick" with a boat. We really wanted to do something special for our last day in The florida Keys, and decided to just see what Theater of the Sea had to offer. It turned out to be a highlight of our trip! Yes, it might be small, but it reminded me of a warm and caring, "Mom and Pop"- type business --not a lot of commercialism here, just a lot of CONSERVATION. My thirteen year old son just belly-laughed at the Sea Lion Show, and we all enjoyed the dolphins. We decided to take advantage of the few open spots to swim with the dolphins, and it was well worth the $170 to do it. We may never get to do it again…The trainers and care-givers are truly caring people who have the animal's and the human's safety in mind at all times. REALLY A GREAT EXPERIENCE…..it was nice to end on a very happy note, considering our morning.

“Thanks for the great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

My daughter, mother in law and I came from WI and decided to do some swimming with the dolphins. It brought a tear to my eyes to see the dedication that these employees put into rehabilitating and training these animals. It was by far the best part of our vacation, and if we come back to FL, we will be revisiting.
Thanks again
