Theater of the Sea reviews
Came to swim with the dolphins, saw an amazing dolphin show, sea turtles, sharks, and birds. The program is set up so you migrate from one show to the next. Great day. more »
The dolphin show was AMAZING! I have seen other dolphin shows but this was by far the best!!! It was great to see the sea turtles and other animals. It was nice you could walk around on your own... more »
Very cool. The dolphin show was awesome, the sea lion show was awesome. The parrot show was awesome. Lots of awesome in this place. Wasn't overly crowded. Very well spent money. The kids and us parents all loved it. There is a short "bottomless boat ride", where one of the dolphins will swim with the boat and do a couple tricks, just a foot from your seat. A very, very cool place to visit. Well worth the money. Our kids were able to meet the sea lion as part of the show. Shook her fin, and gave her a hug. So cool.
We loved all the shows. The animals are absolutely amazing. My kids kissed dolphins and even my 16 year old son was overjoyed at the experience. It's definitely a memory making place for families and individuals. Highly recommend.
