We had a very nice visit to the Gulfarium Marine Center. We saved $9 by purchasing tickets through tripshock.com. We spent about 3 hours at the Gulfarium and that was just about right. You can see everything in that amount of time. We went to all the shows and chats and they were well worth it , especially the dolphin and sea lion shows.
Wonderful and easy
Everything was wonderful!

My body enjoyed the encounter!
The trainers were amazing with the kids and did exactly what was expected.
If you love dolphins, this is the encounter for you! Wow, I am amazed at how big the dolphins are in person rather than seeing them in the wild. She swam right up to us and we got to rub her belly and feed her fish. Then we also learned hand signals so she could do some tricks. This was an amazing encounter and would totally do it again in a heartbeat!

I loved the interaction as well as the friendly and knowledgeable staff.
Out of the encounters I did, this one was by my far my favorite! Milo was just the cutest and seemed so happy to be with us. We learned a lot about him and how to care for our environment to make sure the wild animals are safe and can live long life like him. I would 10/10 recommend this encounter.
This was an unreal experience! Seals are such beautiful and smart animals, and I’m so glad I got to meet Milo and his son Ollie. The trainers showed off how intelligent these animals were by showing us basic tricks. Most of these tricks are learned as ways to make it easier for the trainers to care for them whether it’s brushing their teeth or having them get into specific positions to check their health. This was such a memorable experience, and I’m so grateful I was able do it.

This was a pretty cool experience. I took my 12 year old daughter and my 5 year old son. They both loved it. My daughter spent the whole time floating in the tank, watching the stingrays. My son, who is a good swimmer, was a little timid. But he was able to camp out on a ledge and pet the stingrays, which seemed to be trained to swim right up to people on the ledge. The young lady who led the group was uber-friendly and great with my kids as well as all of the other kids in the group.

This was much cooler than I expected. The sting rays were a lot less intimidating than I thought they would be, and they were actually some funny little creatures. Of course the staff was awesome and informative!
