    I am reviewing this again because of the great experience my teenage son and I had doing the the dolphin encounter. It's pricy but well worth the money spent for the dolphin encounter. Our trainer was...  more »

    We chose the $35 Touch and Feed. It was great. The kids (14 and 11) and adults really enjoyed it. They had more than enough time to feed the dolphins and talk with the trainer. Great experience for th...  more »

    Grand children 13 and 4 both enjoyed feeding and petting the dolphins. Both were impressed with the experience. The staff was helpful and kind. If you want to be sure there is an open place.... book a...  more »

    We had a wonderful time with the "Touch and Feed" experience, which is highly recommended! It was not too expensive, and reasonably priced. The staff went out of their way to make sure we had the time of our lives. I loved that it was located right along the coastline, with a beautiful view of the ocean! We would go back again and next time get the half day trainer adventure, even more up close and personal with the dolphins, which is the main reason to make the trip in my opinion.

    If you are looking for a small park with a dolphin attraction, you better go to Orlando. So this place must have been some attraction back in the day. What you will find today is hardly worth stopping for. Few dozen dolphins, stuffed into swimming pools. Overpriced everything. The only food on site is from a food truck outside that serves overpriced... everything. Real disappointment.

    Dolphin experience was top notch. My kid lost his mind from excitement from getting to feed them and dance with them. The staff is very knowledgeable and friend. The only reason I can't give them 5 stars is the part of the facility that doesn't have to do with the dolphins is run down and depressing. There is a fish tank in the gift shop that needed a cleaning something terrible as there was algae built up on about 25% of the glass. It made me question the overall treatment of their sea creatures.

    Great experience for my 8 year old daughter but she came away disappointed and frustrated only because she has an advanced level of knowledge of sea life including dolphins. Our hope is that someday more advanced classes are offered for kids that may have a higher level of knowledge of dolphins. In my daughrer's words, "Dad, I already know everything they told me, totally wasn't worth the price." So take this as a tip Marineland. An advanced Dolphin experience or trainer program might go a long ways for the kids out there who have bookcases filled with dolphin encyclopedias back home.

    Beautiful place, but for general admission there wasn't too much to do even for two easily entertained toddlers. We got to look at dolphins and turtles and sharks through windows without a tour. I think we were in and out within half an hour. The workers were very friendly though. If you go here, you should probably go to actually touch or swim with dolphins (which is more expensive). The people who interacted with dolphins looked like hey were having a blast.
