#2 of 16 in Zoos & Aquariums in Andalucia
See marine animal shows and educational exhibits at Selwo Marina. Dolphins and sea lions are the main attractions here--either watch them in one of their daily performances or get up close through an arranged encounter. Head to the Penguinarium for penguin feedings. In the Amazon-themed exhibit, crane your neck to see tropical birds, such as macaws, cockatoos, and grey parrots, fly overhead. Monkeys, turtles, crocodiles, snakes, fish, and lizards also live throughout the park. A limited number of visitors can book the dolphin and sea lion encounters so sign up in advance.

  • The park is not very vrand. The dolphin show is friendly. The children were able to pet the dolphins and they loved it. The bird show is a little short. It's worth seeing the dolphins. But it's a paid option. 35 euros per child.

  • We were in Selwo Marina during our stay in Benalmadena. Ticket prices are somewhat expensive, although they can be caught a week in advance and come out cheaper. The park looks quickly, but I recommend to mold the visit to the facility schedules, for a more didactic experience, enjoying the role of birds, explanations of all areas and the spectacle of dolphins and sea lions. As a negative is the high prices of the menus or snacks within the enclosure. It has a number of copies according to the measurements of the installation, so they are not "stacked", except perhaps the flamingos that have a large number of them. In short, I recommend the visit for adults and children.

  • staff speaks only Spanish, from time to time he will put in a word in English. We were with a small child during the show wanted to see the parrots but the service was choosing quite someone else, no interest. after a few omissions by the staff, I could not look at the disappointment of the child.   beautiful animals, average place, I leave you your own evaluation
  • Although not a fan of captive dolphins etc. We took our kids 16 and 3 to visit selwo marina. All the demonstrations were informative and well thought out. It was obvious to see that the keepers love their animals in their charge. The talks were short and to the point. The only down side was the cleanliness of the eating areas but I can put that down to the messiness if the visitors who are more than capable of cleaning up after themselves.
