Being able to engage with the dolphins was so much fun! The trainer had us touch their noses, shake their fins, rub their belly all with signal that the trainer used. We also saw penguins, huge tortoises, many tropical Macaw, Cockatoos, and African parrots. I felt the help were knowledgeable and friendly, especially Bethany the photographer! Our trainer was very friendly and answered any questions we had. I was concerned the $74 price was very high, but in the end I guess I was worth it. However, the photo package for $90 is ridiculously high. After paying $74 admission we couldn’t justify the photo package. Had it been $50 I probably would have bought it. The condition of the building needs updating and wasn’t very clean. A coat of paint would really help.
