  • We had a great time at OCEAN WORLD everything was amazing only down fall to the park is that they give you no time to get the pictures. We had taken a cruise and by the time the tour was done we were allowed to get pictures but we only had 15 min and there was no time im super sad that these moments we had with the sharks and dolphins now have to be just a memory. Ocean world come up with a way for people that go on cruise excursions to be able to get the pictures, if anyone is doing this as a excursion skip the lunch and get your pictures instead. All the workers were very nice and friendly and willing to help you if you needed help down steps to all the water events so I was very thankful for that also.
  • This place was amazing! We visited on a cruise excursion and it was a perfect day activity! Their swimming with the dolphins experience was excellent! They split everyone into small groups and each group worked with 2 dolphins and 2 trainers. We were educated on the anatomy of the dolphins and informed as to how to act and react once we were in the water with them. Once we were in the water, we had plenty of fun and interaction with the dolphins. They even had the dolphins gently push us through the water. We also saw the sea lion show (which was included in the price). The show was well done and very entertaining! Lastly, we snorkeled around their man-made reef (again, this was free with admission). The kids loved it and didn't want to get out. I can't say enough good things about this park. We had a great time there!
