  • It is more of the same. Animals must be in their habitat and not doing the goose in shows and cheap entertainment for all audiences. I was expecting to find a nature reserve or something different and I found more of the same, captive.

  • We went on a Monday and entered without waiting queue. The dolphins and sea lions show was the best of the selwo marina. You also have the possibility to make a photo with dolphins and visit other animals such as reptiles and penguins.

  • A site is very cool, is a mini zoo, but with a very special charm, have it very good care and the birds and spectacular dolphin shows.

  • Loved the experience. Never been so close to the pinguïns! Even the food in there was do-able. Would love to do the VIP visit
  • Dolphin show and tropical birds show of average quality. Sea lions show - the worst animal show I have ever seen. 6 or 7 minutes with 2 or 3 jumps and a few words on how sea lions are different from seals. Disappointing to say the least. English commentary - between poor and unintelligible. And don't forget anything you might need in the car. Once you're out the gate they won't re-admit you unless you buy a new ticket. Never at a similar park have i had this problem before.
  • With the right expectations it is worth one's while. It is small, but still entertaining. The dolphin show was good. Food and drinks expensive, the burgers we had below average quality.
  • Worst delfinarium ever. They charge you 20 euro per person
  • Worst sea life park I have been too. Staff really unhelpful. Place to go if you want to spend a lot of money and not see a lot. Animals are kept in small enclosures. Really disappointed and would not recommend going if you like visiting sea life parks.
