After visiting this place recently we all, (the whole family) felt so sad at seeing these beautiful dolphins in such a small pool. When we discovered they had been there all their lives, it made it worse. My daughter even asked me when they were...More

Hi Kerri, We were in contact with the dolphins for about an hour. We done about 4 or 5 different tricks with the dolphins. The shows are separate and they are different prices.
