    It was good place to see animals. We came to late for show. Really need to post times of dolphin shows on website.

    Expect to be disappointed

    We saw a pod of Dolphins and a couple of sharks that skimmed on the surface. Not once did any one on the ship saw any marine life from the “glass bottom.” My family and I took turns trying to see and all it did was make us dizzy. Finally we just stayed topside so we wouldn’t miss an occasional sight of sea life..

    Just “okay” aquarium

    My family loves aquariums but we were not impressed with this one. It is rather small and takes just over an hour to get through everything, even with seeing a show. We were disappointed but it was something to do to kill a little time.

    Dolphin and sea lion shows are cute. The price of tickets compared to the amount of things to see doesn't add up. Overpriced. Probably wouldn't go back.

    so-so experience

    Left with so-so thoughts on Gulfarium. General admission is expensive for what you get. The sea turtle, shark, and alligator enclosures were so small, I can't imagine living my years as a wild animal in such small enclosures that offer no mental stimulation. (Trying not to be a drag with this review.) The additional Dolphin Experience ($155) was the biggest waste of money. Eight guests (that's $1240 total) got to spend about 15 - 20 minutes with the dolphins. With that many people, the time spent actually touching and interacting with a dolphin is marginal. I can understand why the Gulfarium does it, it is a great money maker. Nice job by the staff though, they did a good job with the shows and presentations. Overall, I would recommend for the younger families whose children are... read more

    You can go through every show and listen to the majority of the "chats" in 4-5 hours.

    Web site confusion

    The experience went fairly smoothly, but apparently there was some confusion in the check out or ordering process. I meant to order 5 Adult and 1 Child's tickets, but wound up with 5 Adults and 1 Seniors which wound up costing me more than it should have. When I got to the Gulfarium they could not do anything, I was going to have to call Tripshock, etc. They accepted the senior ticket to allow the child to enter. To be fair I have not made any effort to get a refund for the difference and it may have been all me, but it happened and cost me more than it should have.

    Hello and thank you for your message. Upon seeing it, TripShock and Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park have worked together and refunded the difference between the senior and child ticket price. Please don't hesitate to call should you need assistance with anything else. Thank you!

    One and done

    This was an ok place to take kids for a dot out of the sun. The admission price is fair, but the encounters are a bit overpriced. Overall, glad we went and enjoyed the Dolphins, but it is a one and done place for us.
