Beautiful views help to frame this park which we attended for a swim with the dolphins. I have to say, there is not a huge amount to see. There are turtles, sea Lions, penguins, dolphins a few small sharks, a sting ray or two, some birds and some fish. That's about it. If I hadn't paid for the dolphin swim I would be disappointed if I had to separately pay for entry.

"Not much going on"

Luckily I visited here for a swim with the dolphins as otherwise I would have left rather disappointed. Unfortunately the park seems quite run down with not alot going on. There are only a few animal in- closures with a few random shows spread out throughout the day. Personally don't think it's worth the price or effort to get to the park.

A facility that is starting to show its age, but it has a friendly staff and some great exhibits. The recurring theme in all of the programs is coming narration and preservation of habitat and species. This is done with a light touch. Great opportunity to see ocean mammals, birds and fish up close and to appreciate them. Prices for concessions are as expected. Look at doing some of the activities.

We sat on a bus with two kids for a hour to get here it cost us just over $100 aus dollars entry and wow what a dissapointment. Took us barely half hour to walk around the dolphin show was good but the pool they swim in was so small felt sorry for them. Hardly anything in the park to look at I would not recommend going here . I found the zoo better value and more enjoyable. Felt ripped off
