  • My family really enjoyed our time at the Gulfarium! When you first walk in the door there is a person taking a family photo with a backdrop, but no one can use a personal camera. I understand the point of them making a little extra money, but costumers don't always have the extra cash to spend on buying their photo. The ticket process was semi-quick, but the line area is a tight fit. After you pay, you walk into the round building where you can see into the dolphin tank which is super cool! We enjoyed looking at the vintage photos and captions while we waited to enter the dolphin theater. Note- you want to get there 30 minutes before the show starts to get a good spot, but all spots are shaded. The dolphin show was about 20 minutes; gave lots of interesting info and showed some cool tricks! We visited the other exhibits where you can listen to animal chats. I wish the petting water pool by the otters and seals would have had more critters or things to touch since my daughter was too young to do the animal encounters. You could spend a couple of hours here in order to hear all the chats and see all the shows. It would be worth it! And, they have an area to sit up on the dune (by alligators den) and look at the beautiful view of the ocean. Overall, we really enjoyed our experience and would go back!
  • I absolutely loved the Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park In Florida. The Dolphin and Sea Lion shows we’re very pleasant and the animals and their trainers were amazing. So much more to do them the shows. There were animals chats about animal and feedings. However I was impressed with their food or choices of drinks, so you may want eat before going. Snacks were ok
