We did the adventure swim and it was fantastic. It was a once in a lifetime experience. We swam with striker the dolphin. It was a relaxing experience with a total of 11 in the group. Would definitely recommend if you're wanting to swim with dolphins.

We had so much fun at Gulf World! We got in the string ray habitat and fed them. We also swam with the Dolphins. Excellent shows! Great customer service! Friendly employees!

This was actually our second time to swim with the dolphins here. They have expanded the program with much more exposure and personal experience with them. Well worth the money for the bragging rights and a nice park with super shows and many animal species to view.

We always have a wonderful time at Gulf World Marine Park. It is amazing to see the staff interact with the marine life and love looking through the gift shop. We will continue to go as long as they are there....

The animals were cute, but the wait times for the shows were little silly. Over all the kids had fun seeing animals they'd never seen before, but a little pricey for what you actually get.
