The encounter with Dolphins is amazing! So much fun to see and got to take pics as well as purchase pics that were taken by the staff. I would recommend doing this early in the morning since it does get hot later on the day.

Well worth the price of admission as so many things to see. The Dolphin show is one of the best I've ever seen.

We enjoyed a rainy morning at the Gulfarium. Lots of animals to see. Everything from penguins to alligators to dolphins. The shows were great too. Our girls even got to hold birds on their arms. Everyone in our group had a great time.

There are coupons in local travel/tourist books found around Destin & Ft Walton Beach. Also they have a day, I think Wednesdays, with reduced rates. Senior day & or Kids day. There is always a discount for Military.
