I was not sure what to expect here, so let me tell you what they provide. All meals, snacks, beverages, frozen alcoholic drinks, beer and wine. As many towels as you want. Free locker and a bag with snorkel, mask and sun block. You have to wear either a vest or wet suit when in the water, they supply it also. We wore just the vest and it was CHILLY getting into the reef in October. Buy a waterproof camera at Walmart. $9 there as opposed to $19 at the park.
There are 4 bodies of water. The otter/ marmoset pool- very neat. You get to swim into a cave and see the otter family behind a glass. The marmosets hang on an island in the middle.The lazy river- wonderful. Feels like bath water, there are "noodles" so you can just relax, place to get out and feed birds in the Avery, 2 waterfalls you go under. It rained mid afternoon, so we just hung out in the water here... It was warm and relaxing. Third is the dolphin area. You get to ride a dolphin, kiss him and hug him. A lot of individual dolphin time so it was just amazing. And last is the Grand Reef. It was cold, but once you got your face wet was just awesome. There are a ton of fish every where. Shallow pools and deep area but you float with no effort at all. There are sting rays and man arrays. They feed them late afternoon which is cool but freaky because they swim right by you and they're huge! I took 2 cameras worth of pictures and could have taken more! I thougt there would just bee a couple of fish, but there were hundreds and they have amazing colors! this was expensive for me, but so worth it. Just a wonderful exciting but relaxing day!!
