This place is a cute place to visit while in panama! it is a lot cheaper than I had ever thought it would be around $30 per adult and there was a variety of things to do inside. Its like a mini Sea World.

"A very small place"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed June 25, 2016 NEW

I think the admission is reasonably priced since this place is very small. There is not much to see or do other than the shows. My advice is to check out the schedule of all the shows first then plan your arrival time accordingly. The dolphin show and the sea loin show are pretty good. You will have enough time to walk around and see the rest of park between shows.

Both girls enjoyed this very much. Watched shows, fed sting rays and got kissed by a dolphin. Not very crowded right at opening 9:30.

We took our daughter here to get a day out of the sun. It was very entertaining as well as educational. the sea lion and dolphin shows were a lot of fun and there was plenty of other animals to check out.

"Awesome!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed June 23, 2016 NEW

We went to Destin for vacation and decided to take my 16 year old daughter here to swim with the dolphins as a surprise. Staff was awesome! Very friendly and helpful. They love and care for these animals as their own. While there decided to do a meet and greet with the sea lion. The trailer went over and beyond for us. Even let my wife and I meet the lion. Grounds were clean and neat. The only downside I can say is a tad pricey but all an all worth it for my daughter. Definitely a must for your kids!
