It's been a very long time since we last visited the Gulfarium and I was not expecting much. Yes, it's a small park and is not Sea World but at a fraction of the cost, it is more than worth it. If you are in the Destin / Fort Walton area you should visit the Gulfarium. Be sure you go to both dolphin shows, they are different in many ways. Take your time, enjoy each animal show and talk and you will easily fill at least 5 hours. The on site food is affordable. Their touch tank was as good or better than most others. Spend plenty of time in the underwater dolphin viewing area.
