We found Gulf World and LOVED it! It's a great rainy day activity as most of the areas are covered. The sea lion and dolphin shows are great! The kids were able to have pictures after the show and my daughter was kissed by Otto the sea lion :) we would definetly go back!

went there got to meet the dolphins, got to pet and feed them, got to play with them, they had scheduled shows with the dolphins, sea lions, birds and reptiles, all were very good and fun for the whole family. We paid extra for the photos with the dolphins and a kiss from the sea lion. We loved it there and would definitely go again when we come back to Panama

We go every year and never get tired of it. They always have some type of show going on. It is a bit pricey but well worth it and if you decide to eat their food prices aren't as bad as admission or the gift shop. Wonderful place!

Excellent facilty, great dolphin and whale shows. Price was little on the high side but what isn't in Panama City. There were air conditioned rooms to get away from the heat. Very busy even first thing in the day, so plan on staying for a while. Food is reasonable and good. People are friendly, gift shop available and staff is friendly also. Location is not hard to find, and parking is plentiful on the side lot.

This place is great! If you have kids, please take them! We took my four year old son and he had a blast, its almost all he can talk about after our trip to PC. Very impressive shows, and it doesn't hurt your waller either. you can see everything in about 4 hours so it doesn't take up your whole day, and its also educational.
