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.

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

great experience, well presented you feel very comfortable

nice facility, the animals are treated properly and obviously feel very comfortable. I saw many plants, only these convinced me in terms of animals. Here people like to spend the money and have the feeling that they have done something good.
