Outstanding Experience
Jun 2021
The aquarium, dolphin and seal shows were really nice! It is the ideal place to take children to. You need at least 3 to 4 hours.

Extremely large venue so lots of walking, wear comfortable shoes. Was disappointed that the Meet a dolphin encounter was suspended until further notice. Dolphin show was a disappointment- only saw 3 dolphins in the show which was more focused on the facilitators rehearsed speech than on showing the beautiful dolphins.

The aquarium is a must see, wide variety of sea creatures and fish to see!

A great day of fun in the sun

The restrictions due to the Covid lockdown worked in our favor. With limited number of people allowed in, all queues were very quick.
The food outlet was quick, reasonably priced and tasty.
The Aquarium is mind-blowing and we will defiantly be going back

How do you keep your animals in these tiny cages. How are the dolphins coping in these conditions. Pools tiny not filled?? Horrendous
You call yourself seaworld?? You not at all on the same level as seaworld
