Like most of the parks in the area, the emphasis is on selling you pictures and the gift shop. The truth is, seals really are not great performers, killer whales don't do much, and yes, a dolphin can jump out of the water. Swimming with the dolphins is really an effort to sell you pictures. They have you face away from those watching you so you cannot take pictures of your family or friends, only the Seaquarium photographer can do that. It will cost you about $100 to get the dozen or so pics from a website. There were several things about the park that was annoying. We waited on line to buy lemonade for about 10 minutes only to be told there was no lemonade. Why not put up a sign at a lemonade stand saying there is no lemonade? At the cafe they were out of ice cream, except for a few frozen bananas, and even there they did not have most of the flavors advertised. Many of the kiosks were closed.

"very average Aquarium with ear splitting music"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed July 31, 2019 NEW
We were told that this Aquarium is one of the best in the world. To start with, it is quite pricey. I understand that all parks that accommodate animals are costly to keep, therefore it is OK to pay, given that the animals are kept in suitable enclosures. The whole feel of the park is somewhat tired. There were no places, except one, to buy water or other drinks from. The small restaurant also closed a whole hour before park closing. Very little choice for food, and more importantly drink on a hot day. Gift shop is ok. Tanks of some of the fish are alright, other ones are very small. The manatee tank is disgusting, these animals have hardly any space. The penguins looked depressed in also an unsatisfactory enclosure. We saw two shows, the dopline one and the orca one. The dolphin show was alright, there always is the question whether these shows portray an unrealistic view of these wonderful sea creatures. There should definitely be more info on the wildlife, instead the dolphins performed to extremely loud music. The same happened at the orcas, the lady's voice commentating was very shrill and the music ear splitting. All the while the trainers said that these animals are very sensitive towards noise. What is the point to have such loud music, when it is supposed to be a place for animals. It's not an amusement park. This Aquarium needs better and most definitely larger enclosures, some TLC and less noise. You need to look after the animals in this park.

I would have to say that this was overall a very good adventure for me and my family. They have things for children and adults. They have a lot of hands-on things for the children and also shows so the family can enjoy that together. One of My favorites was the killer whale show. The whale is endangered and was so amazing and smart. The sea lions were equally as smart and beautiful. All the trainers show love and compassion for these beautiful creatures. They are so smart and keep you on your toes while watching. I enjoyed my day with my family and would recommend to all who have a family and want something different to do.
