Shame on you!

This is a shame that you keep an orca in a very small pool like this. You must release Kschamenk and do something good for once...

Whales live in terrible conditions. Extremely heartbreaking. If you are an animal lover do not pay money to go here it's too upsetting and will wreck your holiday. They should release the orca's. It's inhumane to keep them in those small pools.

Ask to see behind the scenes at the park and I guarantee no one will let you. The exterior is gorgeous and the people seem informative, but the animal conditions where the guests don't see are grotesque. Send your money elsewhere.

Do NOT go here. If you do, you are supporting animal abuse at it's absolute worse. They've kept an orca in the tiniest pool that I've ever seen, for over 20 years! PUSH THIS PARK TO RETIRE HIM TO AN OCEAN SEA PEN. He swims in tiny circles all day. Orcas are entirely too large, emotionally complex and intelligent to... More

Release Kshamenk the orca. It is cruel and inhumane to keep orcas in captivity. Orcas deserve the right to be free in the wild.

To go here is to encourage keeping this poor lonely orca in small paddling pool instead of the vast ocean where he belongs ! The world is currently petitioning for his release
