Superb morning entertainment for a group of adults who soon became kids again. Wide eyed, surprises and laughs. Aquarium and sharks superb, dolphin show magical. Combine with a beach walk. Recommended. Good value.

You need a whole day for the marine world only, for the water park may be another day... you can easily spend the whole day and not finish everything on offer.. Very interesting with young kids.. dolphin and seal shows were highlights of the day.....More
