We did the Royal swim which included Dolphins, Manatees and Sea Lions. By far the best experience my daughter and I could have had. Trainers are friendly and very informative. Try to keep animals in a natural looking habitat. All I can say is we LOVED IT!!!!

A lovely place but our cup of tea. On the positive side,the staff was over the top fabulous The location and scenery were spectacular. On the negative side, there were a lot of children. If you are a couple looking for a quite, relaxing spot-keep looking. For families-hey great! The food....okay but limited. I would have liked more, different restaurants... More

Seriously though, the entire experience was incredible and each trainer was nicer than the next. Dolphins will push you through the water and do some amazing tricks. The sea lions are hysterical and their personalities are a great time to watch. The manatees on the other hand... yikes. Haha my girlfriend and I found them to just be disgusting creatures... More

Of course we Loved the dolphins and the manatees. One of the trainers was really awesome too. But we were treated rudely by the photographer and the pictures are ridiculously priced. We just went to another venue and received pictures for all 7 of us for 150.00 US not 650.00!!! I also found the picture taking to be the focus... More
