Myself and my 4 sons went on a day trip here, first of all I would like to say that Anne made our day even more amazing on just how friendly and welcoming she was, she really is a credit to the park.

The place itself is lovely and all the animals are lovely. One of my sons got too swim with a dolphin and it really was something he will never forget.
You can tell how much the animal carers love the animals. The dolphin show was by far the best it had everyone cheering in the audience.

There is big gaps inbetween shows which was the only thing that got my boys a bit bored as the play area wasn’t sufficient for their ages.
But all in all a good day out.

Well done 😀

Went to the park today and booked to swim with the dolphins. The dolphin experience and presentation were amazing! The trainers were very knowledgeable about the dolphins and you could tell they cared about their welfare and educating us. It was a cloudy day so luckily didn't get too hot would recommend a hat on a hot day as there is alot outside. We saw the sealions show and reptiles which were both good. It is a small marine park but kept us busy for a few hours.

after reading lots of reviews we have decided to just go to the dolphin show. We just lovvveeeed the dolphins, but the show was so short!!! that was a pitty because we came specially from st. julian and there is nothing else to actually do in this area. so we were pretty disappinted. and also it was 10 euros each - so for the length of the show it is pretty expensive.

Dolphins are really a thing. They are cute and really nice but the park is really poor.
It is small and completely not fancy. There are just a few other attractions, nothing really special. The sea lions were really boring and the stands were without cover letting us die under the sun. Reptiles were stuck in a very old building, covered by dust and really dark. The worst part was the restaurant, it was dirty, uncomfortable and the food was really uneatable. The sandwiches were really really bad.

I visited this marine park a lot when I was younger but this is the first time I have been back here for about 10 years.

To be honest it hasn’t changed much, it is really lacking investment and looks quite run down now.

I really do hope this is not affecting the animals well-being, as it looks like they are in quite small enclosures and not necessarily cleaned out everyday.

The shows are okay but I’m not sure I’d say you get your moneys worth for the small amount of animals there are.

The bird feeding was a good experience, and the shows can be educational but there isn’t much to do other than watch the shows, and there isn’t a great choice of food in the meantime either.

This will be the last time I visit this park as I don’t think the animals are being prioritised anymore.

It’s very dated now and needs improving before I would recommend this place again.

Nice half a day out. We went with a 4 and 6 yo. The shows get better through the day, starting with otters, then sea lions, then parrots, then feeding birds and then dolphins. Between the shows there's a 30-45min gap, where it can get a bit boring. There is a small playground, but it could do with a bit more play equipments.

We enjoyed the shows, and a good cause to support.

An absolute joke. The staff thetlre do not have the slightest respect for their clients. We had a reservation for 10 am, and when we arrived at the park, they said the reservation was at 14. No excuses, just a constant repetition that the situation was created by the agent we booked with, although we booked on their website. We did not had heads up. Absolute joke! Do not recommend!

Me and my partner loved this marine park! We had a lovely welcome from the staff in the giftshop and the shows were just fantastic. My favourite was definitely the dolphins, I love them and to see the way the trainers interacted with them was just amazing. The staff were fantastic and we both really enjoyed ourselves, would definitely recommend it! Thank you for a lovely day!🤩

Absolutely brilliant. If, like me, you're looking through the reviews to decide whether to go or not, stop looking and go! Seriously this is a wonderful experience. My husband (not a swimmer) did the dolphin experience and I did the dolphin swim. Both were thoroughly welcoming and an overwhelming experience, never to be forgotten. The instructors were friendly yet professional. They shared practical and personal knowledge of the dolphins. We witnessed their love, care and expertise with the dolphins, and with the sealions during that show! Wonderful place and even the owner came to apologise personally regarding some repair work being carried out next door. Can't say any better than that.
Thanks for taking care of us x

We came here with our 3 year old girl and I really wouldn't waste your money coming here. The main attraction is the shows but there's big gaps between these and hardly anything to look at in between. There's a very sad looking park but nothing else to keep kids entertained. You can't see the sea lions other than in the show as it's all roped off. The turtles water looks absolutely disgusting and green and overall the park is very run down. The enclosures are small and animals don't look very happy. I really would avoid here sadly.
