  • We went to zoomarine last week with our 2 year old and she loved it. The dolphine show was amazing. The weather was not due to the storm emma which affected Portugal as well, but we were very pleased ...  more »
  • Spent €58 just getting in to zoomarine on a Wednesday. Now I know it’s low season, but this was the high season price and it honestly wasn’t worth it. The restaurants weren’t all open, there was only ...  more »
  • We are in a very quiet period. It was very fun and no crowds. See all quiet and could follow. Little tip! Bring your own drink with it because the prices were crooks. Food hence was otherwise fine.

  • We caught the tour bus to the zoomarine, arriving at 10:45, but were disappointed to find that we had to be back on the bus at 4pm. A quick visit to the dolphin desk and our bus back was moved back to 6pm :-) We enjoyed all of the shows. The only one we didn't manage to catch was the birds of prey. There are several feeding stations of the fish and turtles. Pay 1€ for a handful of food and you're set. We decided on the spot to participate in the dolphin experience, which as we were already in the park was cheaper than we'd seen advertised 110€ to participate and 2€ to watch. The dolphin team were very helpful and made the experience an absolute joy for both of us (the participant gets a free towel, flip flops and a drink after and the watcher gets a free drink). There's tonnes of information points as well as happy looking animals and very clean enclosures. Food wise the options are decent but prices do vary. We found that the tapas menu from the restaurant near the pool was the best value (potato wedges, onion rings, mozzarella sticks and chicken wings with either a large pop or a large beer for 8.50€ each). To enjoy all aspects of the park you either need to get there super early and leave at closing or do it over 2 days (at the moment they are offering the second day for 8€). The pool is quite extensive with a wave pool, water slides and children's play pool. Due to time constraints we have never been able to fully male use of the pool part of the park.
  • A fun day out. The dolphin show was amazing and we enjoyed the other shows too. We went with a 7 year old, 5 year old and 1 year old and there was something for everyone. It was April when we went and wetsuits would have been a good idea, so we were only in the water for a short time. However this meant we went to quite a few shows and went on lots of rides - which there were never long queues for.
  • Highly recommended! The park is lovely and cheap to eat and the shows are fantastic! However, the sun loungers and shades are charged at 10 euros a day! You really need two days to see all the park so would highly recommend booking online before you go and getting the second day at a greatly reduced price.
  • This was a great venue. Enjoyed it a lot my wife visited the Dolphin Emotions event for a birthday present. The park is very clean and the staff very helpful. Although I am not 100% on board with performing animals those that were there seem well cared for. The Dolphin Emotions experience was well worth the money and I would recommend it to anyone. The inland beach was awesome and I could have easily spent the whole day there. The eateries were reasonably priced, clean and efficient. This caters well for adults and children. Even visiting end of season the park still had a good atmosphere and remained well maintained.
  • This is a good day out, with fun rides and great facilities. I feel guilty though for going to watch these dolphins perform circus tricks, when really they shouldn't be doing so. Zoomarine would still be a great day out without the dolphin show. The pirate show was our highlight - no animals needed!
