This place was not worth the money for what you get to see at all . I was thinking after they told us about the animals that they would do a better show then they did . Just not happy with the place .

Reasonable prices for excellent fun! My 2 and 7 yo were happy! Enjoyed the dolphin and Tina the sea lion show especially! Tina was really funny! My mother is wheelchair bound and all exhibits were easily accessible. We were pleasantly surprised by this place.

There are coupons in local travel/tourist books found around Destin & Ft Walton Beach. Also they have a day, I think Wednesdays, with reduced rates. Senior day & or Kids day. There is always a discount for Military.

There is one day where you can receive a senior discount (I think the age is 55+). Well worth the break in the price.
