My wife is a huge animal lover. There are 3 types of excursions. We went with the middle one. Amazing time with the animals. We're able to pet, swim with, and get pushed on a boogie board with two Dolphins pushing your feet. We loved it.

The trainers really have an amazing bond with the dolphins and the welfare of the dolphin is top of the list. We swam with the Alpha male dolphin and a... More

This was the best day ever! We got to go into the water with one of the sea lions and play with her, and learn all about her. She gave us hugs, kisses, and a little show. :) The trainer was really great about answering questions, and you can tell they really take care of the animals. Also, the photographers... More

Great time with the dolphins. They had iguanas roaming around and had monkeys and parrots while you waited. Friendly staff. Had a amazing time. Would say they are expensive on their pictures. Don't have any deals for pictures.
