Selwo Marina, Benalmadena

(3.3/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
See marine animal shows and educational exhibits at Selwo Marina. Dolphins and sea lions are the main attractions here--either watch them in one of their daily performances or get up close through an arranged encounter. Head to the Penguinarium for penguin feedings. In the Amazon-themed exhibit, crane your neck to see tropical birds, such as macaws, cockatoos, and grey parrots, fly overhead. Monkeys, turtles, crocodiles, snakes, fish, and lizards also live throughout the park. A limited number of visitors can book the dolphin and sea lion encounters so sign up in advance.

  • Defo worth a visit when in the Benalmadena area, plenty of things to see and do and also if you want to experience swimming with the animals will defo be back. ALoved the place. 
  • Can u swim with dolphins anywhere in benal or even at selwo as it's my girlfriends 21st when we are away and that's what she wants to do 
  • An exciting experience. Swim with a lion marine or see the show with dolphins and make you photos with them was a dream that already is fulfilled. Highly recommended to enjoy but we must take lots of money.

  • 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.
