This was our second time visiting the Seaquarium and the first time for the Dolphin Odyssey. We were at the Seaquarium the week after Easter and it wasn't crowded. My first reservation had to be cancelled and rescheduled due to a fire that closed alligator alley. The representative from the Seaquarium helped me rebook without charging but added if it happened again I would be charged a fee. I am not sure why that would happen since we were attempting to get to Miami and the road was closed but I did get to change the date and my 2 children, ages 10 and 13, did get to do the experience. As others have mentioned, the park is older but not that run down. Where they do the dolphin encounters is very new and a nice facility. It is a little pricey but most dolphin experiences are expensive. The bottom line is that my children really enjoyed interacting with the dolphins and seeing the shows. Also, my son enjoyed doing the obstacle course, there is an extra charge for this.
