A lovely park and great experience swimming with the dolphins, until you finish and they start discussing pictures. Beware as if you want your pictures be prepared for a 260+ dollar charge. Sneaky hidden extras don’t do it for me. A big let down

Highly recommend. There were 3 of us. It never seemed crowded. We enjoyed the dolphins, we particularly enjoyed the lazy river. It is not a low cost vacation but the experience is certainly worth it.
