The water was very polluted, the place was to small and the dolphins was forced to do some displays. (Poor) Use dolphins or others animals to make us happies is wrong. If you really love dolphins. Please go to see them in the wild and not in the bath tub!

Great place to see the trained penguins. Make sure you have your transportation arranged well in advance as the place is pretty out of the city area. Also the last show is at 4.30 PM local time - so plan accordingly.

show is around 30 to 40 min long but kids would love it. The stunts done by dolphins are very cute.. The ride from pattaya beach road is around 20-30 min

Me, my wife and my 3 year old son went here for the 11:00 show. I think for the 3 of us, I paid little over 700 baht. We got free tickets to feed the sheep they have there. My son got a kick out of feeding baby sheep milk from a bottle and giving some kind of green vegetation... More

I find it difficult to reconcile the educational benefit of animal attractions with the conditions of these facilities in the developing world. The trainers are clearly committed to the animals and activities such as swimming with the dolphins brings in revenue, but clearly not enough to maintain the facility to the standards that should be internationally dictated for wild animals...

Apart from the dolphin show, there is option of doing activity swimming with dolphins in which different activities like feeding dolphin, shaking hand with dolphin, getting kissed by dolphin, swimming on top of the dolphin are covered. A must do activity for everybody. Dolphin show has a comic Thai sword fight in the beginning of the dolphin show.

Entrance for the show 500B show lasts about 40mins after the first 20mins of watching 2 guys doing some sort of sword/martial arts act. Commentary in Thai so slightly unsure as to what was going on.Then the dolphins do their act which was good but I've seen better in UK. At the end you can pay 300B to touch the... More

Kids enjoyed here a lot. But later we visited bang kok safari world that dolphin show was better. At pattaya you can swim with dolphin with extra cost.
