  • Gulf World is a small marine park offering dolphin encounters, several bird exhibits, and other marine life exhibits. The dolphin show is worth the admission cost. We visited and saw the sea lion...

  • Neat spot.. lived like tourist today and never been here. Enjoyed it but would change the price of the tickets a wee bit. We felt $47 for 2 was a bit much for all that was happening. Appreciated the 35% due to no swimming with the dolphins being closed but left a sour taste. Thank You to all the staff everyone was nice.
  • As a lifelong local I’ve had many, many visits to Gulf World, and I still enjoy going every year! Not many places can capture the beauty of seeing dolphins and other rescued marine wildlife quite like Gulf World does. If you have more time, you can even have a dolphin or other marine life encounter! Gulf World is able to put the wonder of the gulf into an easy to navigate area and is friendly for all ages.
