I was expecting a little more aquarium but it was very small. I think the quality was nice and if you wanted to purchase extra options to swim or train with the dolphins you could. Nice reasonable gift shop with typical items. Great for families. There is a restaurant in side as well. Or you can walk a little down... More

Our Hotel gave us free tickets to this. Its defiantly worth the $1 bus ride. Had some good exhibits. But after 30 mins that included watching the dolphins for 10 mins be fed, we were done with nothing else to see. It was a nice place to go to to get off the hotel grounds though.

We experienced the swim with dolphins and had a ball. The dolphins were completely adorable and the trainers very nice! Fun time at a reasonable cost!

I did not swim with the dolphins, but I watched as two of my friends did. They seemed to enjoy it. It was well organized. Also, the aquarium itself was very interesting. Fun to see the stingrays up close

While it's true that this is a very small aquarium, they have some seriously cool stuff to do! We spent a whole day there and loved it. The staff was very nice and very accommodating, unlike our scuba experience at another water sports place earlier in the week. We started off swimming with the dolphins in the morning and enjoyed...

We went to the interactive aquarium initially planning to just have a look around the aquarium, but got talked into doing the underwater trek as they were doing a 2 for 1 offer and we are so glad we did!
