“A nice small attraction”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2014

Good for a change of pace. Don't expect a Seaworld but the shows were pleasant and informative.
Probably not exciting enough for teenagers. But fine for small children. The snack bar food was surprisingly good for the money although there isn't really a place to sit down and eat.

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

We had a great experience at the Gulfarium. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. The dolphin and sealion shows are great!! The shark exhibit and the stingray tank are neat. This is a good place to take children/families/couples, anyone really. If you like marine life places such as SeaWorld or Sea Life Park this is what you are looking for.

“Very nice park for a good price. Good shows!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

A very good deal for the price. They even allow you to leave and return later that same day. We saw most of the shows and two in our group had reserved to feed the penguins. Not as exciting as we expected. They weren't too interested in their frozen fish. Wish more photo ops for family watching the process. Very nice gift shop, had lots of things and very good prices. Several items saw in rip off beach shops with higher prices. Buy your souvenirs here.

“Dolphins and Sea Turtles, Oh, MY!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014

Loved that the show was interactive and really catered to my children's enthusiasm for marine life. The animal trainers were very well-rehearsed and prepared for just about any question a kid could ask. Very good value for kid-friendly entertainment!

“A great day out with the family”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014

This is a great local place to learn and see various types of marine life on the gulf coast. Be warned that everything is located in an outside viewing atmosphere so you will need to pick a good day to go. They also have programs at a fee where you can get more indepth with the animals and also schedule birthday parties. They have a little bit of everything from penguins, turtles, stingrays, dolphin shows, otters, sea lions, birds, and alligators. Florida resident and military discounts available at the ticket window
