“So... So”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

We were a bit surprised that this was listed as a "gem" in the AAA book. That was our reason for going. It was just ok. Shows were very short and the acoustics in the shows was terrible. Could not understand 90 percent of what was said.
Everyone enjoys seeing a playful sea lion toss a ball or dolphins do their thing. But, all in all, I don't feel this aquarium is a must see.

“This place is a dump”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

Ever wonder how the park got their killer whale...he was captured from the wild from as a baby from his pod. For the last decade he has spent his life in a glorified swimming pool. The whale can never swim in a straight line because the pool is so small that it must spend its life swimming in circles. This is not in the least bit similar to how the whale would be living in the wild.

This is animal cruelty and by visiting this horrible tourist attraction you are supporting the corporate executives who only care about making money at the expense of this beautiful animal.

Watch the movie blackfish and hopefully this will change your mind before you take a trip to this awful place.

“Sign up for the Dolphins”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

First see the dolphin show, then sign up ahead for either their swim with the dolphin or the dolphin encounter experience. It's for every age and well worth the money! The seal/sea lion feeding and show is interesting. Then see how the dolphins play with balls and train back at the dolphin show basin.
