We have went to Gulf World the last three years. For me, it never gets old. Each show and demonstration is entertaining and educational. I'm always amazed at the level of training these animals have gotten. The Halloween themed shows are not as fantastic as the every day shows, but that's just my opinion. Also, the food at the concession stand is amazing.

Spent half a day there with my husband and 3 children ( ages 12,10,2). The place was nicely renovated. Plenty of tables and benches for you to sit and have lunch. The shows were ok. We all agreed that dolphin show a year ago was way better than the show yesterday. Wish they could come up with a more lively shows. The background music in Feathers and Furry show was way too loud- can't almost understand what was the trainers were saying.

My family really enjoyed visiting Gulf World Marine Park. Our party consisted of 6 adults and 3 minor children. It was very enjoyable for all of our ages from 51 to 14 months. To actually swim with the dolphins was just too expensive for our party. However, the dolphin show and sea lion show was very fun and entertaining. It was worth the admission to go in and watch the shows. We most certainly will continue to visit Gulf World on our future trips. Thank you Gulf World for our entertaining visit.

We had an awesome experience at the Gulf World Moraine Park swimming with the Dolphins. It's a lifetime experience and would highly recommend putting it on your thing you have to do while on vacation.
