Theater of the Sea reviews
I recommend buying one of the packages to meet marine animals to get a great experience of the place. It is a small sanctuary for marine animals and reptiles but still worth the visit. Stick around... more »
We came here not sure what to expect. The plants, flowers, fauna are beautiful. The dolphine show, and bird show were great. You will have a very enjoyable day. Recommend very highly! 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.
