Reviewed 22 March 2012

Very fun place for the family, especially if your new to the area or just visiting. They have sea lion shows, dolphin shows, parrot shows, among others like feed the sting rays and observe their rescued sea turtles. Kids will love this place, its a mini sea world, minus the whales.

“Intimate, casual envirmoment condusive to learning”
Reviewed 18 March 2012

This place is great for kids. It's small enough where you feel like you are part of the show. The grounds are beautiful and the food pretty good. The staff is friendly and very knowledgable. It's a hands on experience do you get to be part of the show. Pet the dolphin, throw rings to sea lions. Great place!
