We enjoyed the show. Was fun not only for kids but also for adults. There are shops where you can eat, take pop corn or juice, and buy souvenirs.

As for the show, you buy tickets at door. As for swimming with dolphins, you need to book in advance, you can contact them through their website.

There is a break In the middle of the show, so people can take a photo with the dolphins. To stand in the line you have to pay 50TL. So you cant get near dolphins if you don’t pay the 50TL. The picture are of great quality.
