This place was really pretty and well maintained when I was kid but now it's not worth it at all and animals are going through animal abuse. Their entrance is still the same price and even tho they...

Half the exhibits are closed, there’s no more orca, the other half is maintained extremely poorly, the aquariums look like they haven’t been cleaned in months. For less money and more experience...

This is a nice little park that will take a half day to experience. Don't come expecting sea world as it's an older establishment but it is well worth a trip if you need to entertain children. We did the dolphin experience and my teenage kids loved it, one even said it was the best part of the entire week!! It is a bit pricey but the memories are what you come here for.
Visited on Saturday, May 14, 2022. The “shows” are geared towards kids primarily but fun to see as adults. The park seems a bit run down. Bathrooms we’re in good shape. It was not near as busy as we expected it to be. We arrived at open and left after 5 hours. Great walking. Easy to follow their maps. FLIPPER was neat. Top Deck Dolphin show was great. Sea Lion show very entertaining. Too much talking in each show. Not enough tricks and flips. A nice day in the sun and they do not really gouge you here in the pricing of trinkets, but it is expensive as most attractions are.
The aquarium is very nice place to visit with kids. If you already been to Sea World it may not impress you but its closeness to see and relatively quite ambience is really cool. I enjoyed the shows and hats off to the great team of experts whose hard work is making this place a success.
Went this weekend and I must say it's a stark difference than when I went a few years back, it's a tad bit run down and even the kids rated it a 6 out of 10 and I feel they were generous. The shows used to be more fun, the staff talked my ear off and sitting there I almost followed out the many people leaving because of their non-stop talking and to be quite frank was annoying. Don't know if it's because of COVID-19 and everywhere was closed and funds to run the place we're limited but truly there is no need I feel to bring any of my visiting families here again... Sad because I enjoyed the first time I went years back ..
Some of the exhibitions we're closed. It seemed the place was all about the dolphins with a side of sea lions, manatees, turtles, stingrays, and sharks. The park is small. Could walk the entire thing is less than 30 minutes. Daughter still enjoyed herself (4.5 yrs old). Will not be returning until she is at least 10 yrs old. Minimum to swim with dolphins or feed sea lion while in the pool with them.
