We had to cancel our planned visit to Tuxel / terschelling and visited Dolfinarium as an alternative, but it was worth the visit. We spent 5 hours and still we felt that we could have entered a bit early. We enjoyed all the shows. All...More

We went there with lots of expectation of the dolphin show but the show was good. This place was expensive and crowded. The main complaint is that the explanations are only in Dutch.

This (old) Dolfinarium hosts 3 major shoes. Once you've seen them, there's nothing much more to do there. It's crowded in August so it's recommended to buy the Express Pass, which also guarantees a good spot on the main dolphin show.

We had a wonderful time at the dolfinarium. We saw all the shows available (dolphins and sea lions) and the kids really enjoyed. Notice that all explanations are in Dutch and not in English.

Waiting time by the gates and the shows are impossible. You stand in the sun for long,nowhere to hide. They charge at the gates much more than online. Not a lot to do.

Pity. The whole site is looking tired. Not too crowded, which was good, but understaffed in certain areas. Pools for the seals, sea lions, are too small and some are not even occupied. Dolphin show was more or less in the dark and nothing to...More
