“Great for kids and even bigger kids!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

Extremely busy in high season - you can get great deals out of season - don't ever book through your hotel, there are numerous professional local independant tour companies that offer brilliant deals - take a picnic as food is pricey

“Impressed with the shows - the ethos - the fun - the cleanliness”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

My husband and I enjoyed all 4 shows -Dolphins the most - Seals & Sea Lions the least.
The bird shows are good and cleverly done to keep the children amused and the adults entertained & informed as well. The parrots etc are very colourful and the Eagles, Owls and Hawks are impressive, not to mention the clever crow! All the staff had great respect & rapour with animals - it was lovely to see. Liked the Shark,the rays & the fish in the aquarium as well. We didn't use the pool or the rides but they looked great fun & would be a must with kids - it is a full day out as a family - dry weather would be best.
We went on the Zoomarine bus and they alter the time you spend in the park dependant on the time of year and how full it is. We had ample time. The shop was a little disappointing but I don't know if that was because we went in mid October near the end of the season. The food was good enough - no worse value than a zoo in the uk - so yes as a family if you can take a picnic it would be a good idea. The popcorn sold before the shows kept the kids entertained while they waited.

“Dolphins are superb”

This is an excellent attraction with the importance of the marine environment expressed in every aspect. So many shows that the day is cram packed add in themed rides and you have an excellent day out.

“Excellent day out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

We had fantastic time here, the only reason I marked it down was because of the food outlets in this place. There was not much choice, and the Barbeque was closed. Had that been open, I'm sure it would have been the most popular food venue.

That aside, the animal presentations (dophind, birds of prey, tropical birds, seals and sea lions) were wonderful, and really humourous while at the same time delivering a very important message.

The 4D cinema was fun, and our son loved the rides. Unfortunately the swimming pools were too cold at this of year, but I'm sure they're lovely during the summer months.

When we booked our tickets on line for the park, we also booked their bus to take there and back from Vilamoura. At 5.50euros each, this was well worth it.
