We took our 16 and 6 year old grandchildren for the dolphin encounter. It was wonderful! The trainers were great with the kids, we could watch the whole thing and the pictures they took were fantastic. This isn't Sea World, it an fun, educational experience. In the other pools you can watch dolphins playing by themselves and it is so cool. Expensive but worth it!
