Amazing Connection with Dolphins

One of the best dolphin encounters that I have had. I enjoyed it so much that I have returned several times with family and friends so they could have this experience.

This park is actually a federal research site for dolphins and sea lions. As a result the "trainers" are actually highly educated and very professional. The dolphins and sea lions along with their trainers are working most of the day so there is plenty to observe for many hours. Of course, the highlight and it is worth every dollar is... More

This was a wonderful experience. It was the peak of our trip. I took my sister there for her birthday gift. We wanted to go back again the next day but had a busy schedule. I would recommend this experience to everyone at least once in a life time. I am still talking about it.

The main thing that I noticed was that the lagoon where the dolphins swim was much more natural looking than the brick and... More

The entire staff was very helpful, courteous and very knowledgeable about dolphins and their safety was first. I enjoyed every minute of my time spent with the dolphins and even paid for the photographer to take pics of my fun time here...I would recommend this activity for anyone sitting on the fence debating whether or not to spend the money...

We stopped by for an hour while driving to Key West from Miami. It was an entertaining distraction. Most large aquariums have more exciting (and equally educational) shows.
