  • We spent a day in Malta and was dedicated to the water park because we booked the bathroom with dolphins for 13-year old daughter. Fantastic and exciting, the boys all friendly, nice and professional, also great Darren, Managing Director, who shot the video and we were able to capture and bring home this wonderful experience.

  • Great day out for all ages. Swimming with dolphins is a must......well worth the money. Staff are lovely, very patient and explain everything that is going to happen. Photos and videos of your experience are available to buy and are a great keepsake.
  • Did the dolphin swim experience and it was lovely. The staff were very knowledgeable, and seem to care for the animals a lot. Although the pool sizes seemed small, the animals seemed content and not like other animals I have seen in too small enclosures. Only issues I had were the lack of food that seemed available at the restaurant and the fact that with the experience we bought, our free journey home wasn’t until 3.30. Since we arrived at 9 and the experience finished at 11 it meant we had over 4 hours to kill, which is very hard to do in a park so small. Other than the shows there is little to see. Still very lovely and I felt I learnt a lot.
  • If you have been to a similar park like in the usa then there is no reason to waste your time and money on this. It's a small marine park which is not in a pristine condition and the dolphins and sea lion look cramped in their surroundings. If you never been to a similar themed marine park then I guess it's a reason to go as in Malta there are not lot of things to do in any case. Shows are short in duration: 2 dolphins in the show and one seal with a sea lion in the other show. It's inhumane to force a sea lion to stand on its flaps. I've been to similar themed shows in various countries and this specific in Malta was the worse as the premises and performance made me feel depressed for the poor animals. Entrance €15 and to swim with dolphins @€115-135 depending on the season. There are some tortoises and some reptiles as well.
  • It was really nice to be that close to a dolphin and sealion's. Bit concerned about the size of the pools but they genuinely seemed to care about them and gave informative lessons about how they take care of them and what to do if you see a stranded dolphin. There is an hour between shows and little to do in-between but I had a really nice half day there. I would suggest you get the bus and arrive for 11 in the winter as the first show starts at 11
  • Lovely little attraction. Averagely priced for gifts etc. Food a little overpriced. Half a days attractions with the shows. Shows quite good. Interactions with the animals extra but worth it.
