Visited here whilst on holiday, 20 euros per adult entry and all shows seen within 1 1/2 hours, this place is very small compared to Mundomar Benidorm which takes 4-5 hours for the same money.

I didn’t do the dolphin encounter so can’t help on that one. You could pay on the day as it was featured at the ticket desk. Might be best doing online and advance though as the numbers will be limited I’m sure.

I would go through a travel rep or ask your hotel for a deal. We got the entry tickets and experience for a family of four for a great price and Selwo need to speak to someone on the phone to confirm all bookings as well.
