Very cool. The dolphin show was awesome, the sea lion show was awesome. The parrot show was awesome. Lots of awesome in this place. Wasn't overly crowded. Very well spent money. The kids and us parents all loved it. There is a short "bottomless boat ride", where one of the dolphins will swim with the boat and do a couple tricks, just a foot from your seat. A very, very cool place to visit. Well worth the money. Our kids were able to meet the sea lion as part of the show. Shook her fin, and gave her a hug. So cool.
We loved all the shows. The animals are absolutely amazing. My kids kissed dolphins and even my 16 year old son was overjoyed at the experience. It's definitely a memory making place for families and individuals. Highly recommend.
