The show that they put on is great with the animals they also kept them in very large areas with lots of room to swim around with real ocean water! So was nice to see them have good living conditions

Firstly, the staff seemed annoyed and like they were not expecting our excursion to be there. It was a bit off-putting. The dolphin interaction was fun (naturally) but very brief.
