We enjoyed the visit and the staff were friendly. Trainers were great as well and really interacted with the participants. It's worth the visit and experience. I would recommend the location evaluate the prices of their photograph packages, they are way over priced.

This place was sooo cool. The dolphins were great and they even have some exotic birds, parrots, parakeets etc. I loved just watching them and listening to them. Enjoyed spending time with the dolphins and seeing the trainers interacting with them.More

Book an early time slot. 10:00 or 10:30 is a perfect time.

On the photo CD- is it just your individual pictures on the cd or is it the whole group in the water with u at the time? I was considering buying the regular swim w/dolphins for my kids and husband and me upgrading & getting a special "Swim adventure memory package" for me. If I buy the special package for myself will it have pictures of my husband & kids on it? Or just me?
