  • Our family enjoyed this. We booked the 2 hour tour online and had no problems. Our kids are 7 and 11. It is educational so there is a lot of sitting and listening before the touch pool, museum, dolphin, and sea lion. Follow the directions on the website to find the place and it isn't hard to find. I guess there are problems with some of the GPS directions.
  • We had a great time and very educational. I felt it was just a little high to kiss the dolphin and the sea lion.
  • Very educational and fun! I did the Public Tour and the Dolphin Encounter, and it was the highlight of my weekend. The animals are well taken care of, the staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and the facility is exceptional. The best part was knowing I was supporting the important work they do for rescue and rehabilitation of marine animals. This was a great experience for adults and kids alike. Highly recommended!
  • Horrible....... More talking than anything else and no interaction with dolphins. You get to watch like 5 minutes of the dolphin and like 5 minutes for the sea lions. Waste of money.....DO NOT GO! 100% horrible
  • Wonderful things are done here.
