“Good experience”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

Swimming with dolphins was an outstanding experience. The experience itself is expense, and even more expensive are the photos. The fact that you're not allowed to take your camera is ridiculous, but I guess a way of them making some money.

“Wait until your kid is at least 6 to enjoy the full experience”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

Day admission pass will get you dolphin, bird, sea lions, and shark shows. You can also snorkle on the "reef" (large aquarium with what remotly remind you of a real reef) if you older then 6 and eat lunch for free (drinks not included). You can use "private beach" - which is a strip of sand in front of the dolphin pool totally separated from the ocean. For everything else - you need to pay (encounters with live enimals, water slide, etc).

Children under 6 are not allowed in the reef aquarium (which is not mentioned anywhere on their website) and are charge the same price as adults.

Children under 6 are not allowed on a water slide - which is also something that you learn only when you get there.

Try to explain age restrictions to a 5 yr old when she sees her friend (a year older) using the water slide and swimming with the fish.

Overall - an ok place to spend time, but not full day and not for the cost they charge. I would wait until my kid is 6 so she could enjoy the full experience (especially since I am paying full price for her).
