Took the kids on holiday to Spain during half term break. We were lucky that Selwo Marina was resuming operations from the 17/02/2017, we were departing 18/02/2017 early morning flights. We visited mainly for the dolphins, but fitted in the bird show + also enjoyed the sea lion's display. The kids and bigger kids were truly excited with the display.... More

Went here as somewhere else closed but glad it happened. The animals were great and the shows were amazing. We watched the dolphin show and the bird show. Staff were nice. Seemed a little on the expensive side but worth the money in the end.

Thank you very much for visiting Selwo Marina. The park has special interaction programs "Unique Experiences". Among these proposals is Encounter with Dolphins, it is not a bath with this great mammal but an interaction program with a marked didactic nature aimed at knowing and respecting dolphins to meet three objectives: discover, learn and entertain.

We visited and we loved it. Very cheap and affordable. We spent the full day there and even managed to watch two dolphin shows. 20 Euro to meet touch and get a photo with a dolphin was a fabulous experience me and my little boy loved it. Would reccomend to anyone.

Selwo is a great attraction! Ticket prices are very affordable at 24:98€ per person in high season. Dolphin shows are brilliant. You can really see the hard work the trainers put in to the shows. They should be very proud. If you want to take part in any of the unique/VIP experiences you MUST BOOK IN ADVANCE as you will... More

On its own, the park is barely worth the entrance fee, BUT if you pay (quite a bit) extra for the complete dolphin experience and the penguin feeding then it turned into a very memorable day. The trainers we interacted with were lovely and patient. This visit will be a highlight of our trip. Also, for the best experience follow... More
