  • COUPLES SWIM - The trainer is busy with 3 roles, guide, dolphin trainer, and photo director. You'll be given more instructions than the dolphins. Yes, the whole experience is pricey with the photo...

  • Would not recommend this location for the dolphin swim. It really is a tourist trap. Our pictures costed us an upward of $300 for the group of 5. (and they do not allow you to choose select photos...

  • A pretty small aquarium but worth it for US$15 admission fee. The dolphin experience is quite good even though I do not agree with dolphins in captivity, I can tell they’re very well taken care of. Full muscular bodies, bright eyes, and very active and playful, with a full set of sharp teeth (not dull or yellow which are signs of stress and worn out). Fun time for kids as well since you can pet some of the fish and starfish.
  • At first we were a bit disappointed. After paying $25 US per person it took all of 15 minutes to see all of their exhibits. The guide map says they have Crocodiles, but they did not. The obit saving grace was their live show. Watching the dolphins perform was amazing. My only suggestion is to get there 15-20 minutes prior to the start time to get a good seat. We left and came back, arriving 5 minutes prior to show start, and had to squeeze in on the top row. Unfortunately as of April 25th, 2022 masks are still required and wearing them in 90 degree heat with little air flow in the arena was quite a pain.
