$20-$30 entrance fee, spend a few hours to tour the entire park including shows. Everything is well laid out to handle big crowds and they do a good job with audience interaction and learning. They have a little garden cafe for sandwiches and snacks. Bring your camera, leave your dog at home (they have rescue cats in the gift shop and occasionally wandering the premises),

Certainly worth a visit, but not cheap by any stretch of the imagination. All the things that you would expect from this sort of attraction

We went here when we arrived at Key Largo. Very quiet and relaxing day. Only need a few hours to cover the park.

Theater of the Sea is a great way to spend the afternoon in Islamorada. There's a live narrated tour of the various pools where you can learn about the sea life and animal life. Loved the bird show and the dolphin show! A little expensive but worth it nonetheless.

Fun guided tours and a great dolphin meet and greet experience. A very beautiful day for all. We did the "Meet the Dolphin" experience for $85.00 each - and that included entry. THAT makes it a good deal. No coolers were allowed inside, but we were able to go out to our car and eat, and come back in.
