We had never been here before so we decided to finally bite the bullet and stop by for the first time this trip with my wife and one year old daughter. Tickets were $20 per person (one year old was free), and we started off towards the dolphin tank which was kind of neat. You look in from the bottom of the tank and watch the Dolphins swim around. We walked over to the fish tank and small tanks with random sea life which I really enjoyed. However after when we were done we were directed to walk outside to view the rest of the Gulfarium. The rest of attractions were scattered and really did not have a good layout. You backtrack a lot and its easy to get confused on where to go. Also, the tanks holding the other animals looked dirty. You do get close to penguins and otters which is pretty cool. Overall I don't think it was worth $40 for two people but as always different people have different expectations.

Not worth the money. Dolphin show was good but not worth $20 a person. Spent maybe 20 min walking around and could have left after that. Luckily we stayed for the dolphin show which was the only thing worth the time. Kids may enjoy, but not adults.

We enjoyed our visit, but it seemed like it was in need of some updating. Some of the exhibits needed updated and weren't open.

We were looking for something to do besides going to the beach everyday and decided to go to the Gulfarium. I am so glad we did, we had a great time. The dolphin and sea lion shows were awesome. My 3 year old loved them. It only took a couple of hours to see everything. Prices are affordable and the staff is very nice.

We couldn't decide if it would be worth the time and money to go to the gulfarium....but SO GLAD WE DID! I have a 2 yr old and he loved it! The dolphin and seal shows were so good! And then we enjoyed walking around on our own exploring and seeing the other animals. It is worth your time and money. Take your camera!
