We visited Gulf World during Spring Break and were surprised at the great shows offered. The staff were exceptional! It is evident that the animal trainers really love the animals and enjoy what they do. We were privileged to have the opportunity to remain after the park closed and chat with one of the trainers. He answered tons of questions and were learned so much. And, we even had time to shop in the gift store. Everyone was exceptional and I was very pleased to see the love and care given to the animals. The only thing I would change is the dolphin pictures. After the dolphin show you can pay $10 to have a picture taken with a dolphin. Up to two people can be in the picture and one person can hold the dolphin's fins. They rush you and no matter how good or bad the picture is you only get one shot. I can understand if there are tons of people, but there were only 10 people that purchased and they really could have taken a bit more time and not rush the people. Other than that, the shows are great.
Tip: Get there early so you can enjoy the day and not miss any of the shows.
