Badly damaged in 2012 hurricane. Museum is gone, hate to see the dolphins penned in. Had seen it in 2007 and was impressed with the rotunda fish aquarium. The ministry of tourism is just not funding the south shore enough or well.

The dolphin show was excellent but the rest of the place go be better. The large aquariums really need to be cleaned. The small enclosure that the huge turtle was in is far too small

Very nice and reasonable price . Great for the whole family. We love everything to do with animals . You could swim with the dolphins if you chose to do this or just watch the dolphin show.

If the kids want to swim with the dolphins or see the show it's ok. They combined this Tory with another so we had free time to wonder around while people swam with the dolphins after the show. Visited 2008

I will not recommend this to anyone. It sad, these poor dolphins. Up the street further, the lagoon has dolphins as well, but they get to swim around in the lagoon. They are not as close to you, you are not guaranteed to see them,...More
