It’s all about kids here, where theme park rides and dolphin shows reign supreme. Water rightly takes center stage here, whether you’re talking the Orca-themed water slide, pirate ship, or daily show within the indoor Dolfinarium.

Our visit to Boudewijn Seapark in Bruges, ignited my fantasy of swimming with marine mammals. It was an exciting show where we got up close, where the trainers enjoyed an amazing interaction with these beautiful mammals. In the shows, the trainers did several gymnastics with dolphins and sea lions, and then rewarding them. The setting in the Park is very... More

I've been to many theme parks across the world so this one by no means compares to all the great ones I've been to, however the dolphin show (see pics) is unique and enjoyed by all ages. That said, is it worth the entry fee just for the dolphin show? No, but there is also a sea lion show (see... More

The Dolphin show was really too good. This place is an ideal location for family. Must visit if you are in Bruges.

Easy to get to by bus from the station & a wonderful day awaiting. From the sealions to seals and dolphins, from the (all-included) rides--the orca roller coaster was a special hit--to the amazing waterpark with its fun-filled deluges, this is one of the best day outs we've had with our primary-age kids. Plenty for younger children too--like the mechanical... More

We went as a family, (grandparents, parents and 2 girls aged 8 and 10). There was plenty to keep the girls occupied, although I suspect that in a couple of years time, it would be too tame for the older one. The roller coaster, the drop tower and the boat slide were the favourites. Although it is sad to see... More

The Dolfinarium-show is a must see. Around this location there are many attractions free of cost, except consumptions, for any kinfd of age. You only buy a ticket income, not expensive.

With bad weather forecast for Bruges on Easter Monday, the seapark was a decent option for the kids, primarily due to the excellent soft play. There were vouchers available online and a small discount applied, however be warned it is still around £60 for a family of four to get in. So with that in mind we decided to make... More

but I was mainly impressed that something that old and not well maintained was stil functioning. We only visited the dolphinarium and the indoor playground (bobo), the playground needs a major and I mean major renovation.

So... The dolfinarium first. Let's say I understand in a place like Belgium, they have no choice but to make an indoor dolfinarium. However, it's just sad for these animals. I really think they don't enjoy swimming around in an indoor pool. The shows are nice and all, but I just feel really bad for them. I remember when I... More
