I thought this was going to be a ringy dingy place, burt I was surprise at the number of shows and activities. Sea lion performance is better than the main attraction dolphin show. Don't forget to check with you hotel for discount or check travel books.

My son loved it here. It is not huge but the shows are worth it and timed so that you can see them all in half a day's time.

We loved this place! Plan on spending the whole day because there are several exhibits and shows to see! My daughter loved petting sting rays and getting her picture taken with a dolphin! We can't wait to go back so she can participate in the "Trainer for a Day" program..

We surprised our kids with a swim with the dolphins day at Gulf World. They had so much fun. They spend some time learning about dolphins before they get in the pool. They get to give the dolphin commands, pet them, hold their fins and get a pulled around the pool. After the dolphin experience they have several shows that are scheduled for you to go from one to another. Then you have time to explore on your own. Fun place

It was a nice place. I loved the dolphin show, but the bird show was amazing. The people that works there were very friendly and had the crowd laughing.
