  • We stopped just to see what it was all about. We are glad we did. Nice place to walk around and learn about the animals they have. Dolphin show was our favorite

  • All the wildlife are rescues deemed unable to be re-released to the wild. Amazing thing they are doing here. There is animal interaction for a very decent fee. All the money goes to take care of these precious animals. I would recommend it to anyone who wants their money to go to a good cause and have a nice time. Great for adults and families. They even have a small private beach where guests can relax or swim and feed tropical fish. Awesome place. We'll be telling everyone we know about it.
  • A super cool place for all ages to enjoy! GREAT shows & happy people! LOVE the dolphins 🐬 & their happy friendly trainers! The parrot 🦜 show & sea lion shows are also done very well 👌 The pontoon ride is well worth the short wait & very unique and relaxing (exciting too with the dolphin 🐬 surprise!) BEAUTIFUL foliage everywhere & NOT a lot of walking! The shows are set up well with no waiting ~ One flows immediately after another...An impressive set up!
