Our grandchildren loved seeing the animals (and getting splashed). We loved the fact that they learned about the necessity of keeping our oceans clean, recycling, and carrying for the creatures that share this planet with us. Great dolphin show!
This was the most awesome show. My 12 year old grandson and I attended. We were amazed at the trainers and how well they interact with all the animals.
We had an awesome time and the price was very reasonable

Paul was so pleasant and knew so much about the area and the wildlife and sea life of the area. Not only did we see several different pods of dolphins (in open waters of the Gulf) and go into the water with them, but a moma dolphin and her calf swam beneath me and a large dolphin swam within arms length of me and I found myself face to face with the beautiful creature! This is something I will definitely schedule again when in the area.
We went out on our excursion on Monday August 5th. Our guide was Dale and he was GREAT!!!! My kids and I had an amazing time and loved the experience to get to see dolphins swimming all around us in the ocean... Thank you so much Water Plant and thank you Dale for a great time on the boat.

Captain Amelia was fantastic! She navigated us expertly through some big waves, was full of information and even laughed at our jokes! PLUS....we got to swim with wild dolphins!!! I WILL be doing this again and WILL be requesting Captain Amelia again!

What a dream come true!! Swimming and interacting with the dolphins was so cool. The trainers were knowledgeable and friendly. I was a bit worried about getting in a deep pool with wild animals but the trainers made me feel safe and at ease. It was a bit expensive for the amount of time you are with the dolphins but I would still give it 5 stars for such a magical experience.
Absolutely amazing
I surprised my 14 year old daughter Lily with a swim adventure with the dolphins. She got to interact with Cajun. She had a great time learning facts about the dolphins, how they train them, etc. She loved being able to do tricks and take pictures. Her favorite was defintely the belly ride. I recommend this for anyonem The staff at Gulfworld was friendly and very informative.

My girlfriend and I had a blast swimming with our dolphin, Roux! It was a once in a lifetime experience for the both of us. We loved it! We are 20 & 21 years old so it is definitely for all ages! So so fun!
I loved the encounter. It was awesome. The pictures were extremely to expensive and did not appreciate taking advantage of customers because you know they will buy for the memory. That is wrong. Lower the price on the pictures.
Loved it. My wife talked me into it and i’ so glad she did . Worth the money. Roo was a cool little guy. I highly recommend this adventure.

This was absolutely amazing experience!! Our girls loved the royal swim! I would highly recommend this activity!!
I absolutely loved it!
We had a fantastic time at Gulf World. It is a small facility, but well run and the staff are attentive and helpful. Our time in the water with the dolphins was fantastic and loads of fun. They took pictures the whole time and the price to purchase the full digital set was reasonable. The cost overall was not cheap, but definitely worth the experience, and the work they do there to rehabilitate stranded and hurt wildlife.

We were with the harbor seals. They're so smart. We learned a lot. It was great to touch the seals. They're so cute! Our instructors we both great! Highly recommend you do this.
This was amazing!! Our 3 kids got to interact with 2 harbor seals in their habitat. They got to get in the water with them, hug, pet, and get a kiss from the seals. This was a definite highlight of our vacation!!
We were only 2 for the encounter! The trainers were fun and knowledgeable! We would recommend!
