    A sensational park, a dizzying encounter with dolphins (hugs, kisses). A day at the top. Breathtaking shows ... sea lion, sharks, swimming in a coral reef, parrots that eat you in your hand, toucans, aviaries. Wow, beautiful memories in your head. Possibility to acquire photos and video of the dolphin encounter. To redo

    It was a very nice experience. We also booked the Sea Lion Encounter on site for $ 49 per person, which is definitely worth it as the sea lions were a big highlight. The trainers from the animals on site are very friendly, explain everything exactly and take enough time even in a larger group. The transport from the hotel and back worked great. For a total of 125 photos as well as a video on the USB stick, a printed photo of our choice and a keychain, a magnet, we found the price of $ 100 okay. Park is generally very pretty, the shows are appealing, and lunch is okay.

    Was really a great experience !!

    My wife and I really enjoyed the trip to Ocean World. The park was not overcrowded (we were there in late August). So we could see all shows. The highlight for us was of course the Encounter with Delphin Pancho. A great experience. We touched the dolphin and he played with us. Was really worth the money. For $ 80 there were all photos and a video on a USB stick. Can only recommend! Tip .... Be sure to print out tickets. With the tickets on the smartphone they have problems at the checkout!
