“expensive, but enjoyable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Expensive trip, but enjoyable. Nice water games, definitely a nice place to spend a day and a lot of money. Fun dive, fun games. During the killer whale show, upper seats are better. Lugar caro, pero es una buen lugar para entrenerse junto con su familia durante un dia. En los shows de las orcas, sientensen arriba.

“Very entertaining for all”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

We really enjoyed out visit to the seaquarium. There was PLENTY to see and the training staff was fabulous with the animals and with the visitors. The shows are well coordinated in a schedule to get to all shows in the same day if you are there by a reasonable time, mid morningish. The only issue we had was the regular non trainer staff was not all that friendly or helpful. But more than worth the visit! As a family of 4 we ALL had fun!

“very small and poor shows!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

I really do not recommend this attraction. It is a shame to see 4 dolphins in such a small pool, and not even start on the poor wale that can does her best to swim in a 25 m long pool. There are no quality shows. To get to a dolphin attraction one has to climb a stairs to stand by the pool...

“Good Deal discount tickets”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013 via mobile

I printed today a 20% off discount on smartsave.com for Seaquarium and it worked perfectly. Is very useful because tickets are really expensive for the service you get.
Nice Shows but nothing breathtaking......

Enjoy the discount.
