I just love Peppa the sea lion

So worth the cost!! We did both sea lion and Dolphin experience. The trainers were awesome. Loved the dolphins show too! Two things off the bucket list. Gotta do this!!

The place has dolphin encounter and water park. It also has zip line and rock wall. You buy different level tickets and get different services. But what they didn't tell you is that kids have to be like 80 lbs to go on the zip line and they have to use life jackets in the lazy river unless they are... More

We spent the day at the park after booking through our local beach agent outside the Riu Palace. The trip included our taxi transfers and lunch for the paying adults (Kids under 6 went free with a paying adult). We were not disappointed. On arrival you go through a check in where you are provided options for the photo packages... More

Even when we had done everything we came for, he continually asked what else we wanted to do and see. Was very impressed with the way... More

The day started off just going to a waterpark to escape the beach and then we got "sold" on the dolphin experience. I'm glad we did it because it really was an awesome experience. My only complaint is wondering if we got ripped off...we were standing in line to pay and a gentleman from a both on the opposite side... More

Well organized. Had enough time to spend with the dolphins individually. When our group was getting too large, they split us into 2 groups to optimize the time spent with the dolphins. It was an experience of a lifetime!

Well organized, everyone very friendly. We did the Royal Swim so got to do the Sea Lion encounter too. We were the last group of the day before closing so got a little more of a show from the trainers. They showed us some stunts that they are working on with the dolphins. Danny was our trainer with Simba and... More
