My wife and I firmly believe that the Dolphins are not well treated and should be released. The show was sad to watch and we wish we had not been there and left after a short time.

Yes the dolphins are kept in small pools, but the chance to see them up close and have your photo taken with them is fantastic. This was our second visit - we knew what to expect and we all had a great time. The young...More

It was really a nice experience, the staff was friendly. We just felt sad for dolphins that swimming pools were quiet small. We wanted to try this but still mitigated after.
