Visited here with my fiancé and two year old daughter. It was quite hot outside, but besides that everything was awesome. I would definitely suggest you give yourself at least 3-4 hours to be able to view all the shows! They were all awesome shows and our favorite was def the bottle nose dolphins show. Loved the variety of food concessions available as well! Will def have to visit here again in the future.

My daughters participated in the park's "Trainer for a Day". They had a fantastic, personal experience. They were able to learn about and interact with all the animals at the park. An experience well worth the price.

Although it is small in size, the programs are worth the money. Out of town guests enjoyed their visit to the park.

Loved the shows, everyone there was so full of information and you could tell they really cared about the animals. The Dolphin Show was awsome. Would love to go again. Not very big but worth the money.

"A nice break from the beach..."
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

I took my 12 y/o daughter to Gulf World while on vacation in Watersound Beach. It was about a 30 minute drive. The sole purpose was for her to have an encounter with the dolphins. I had read reviews on TripAdvisor.....some ok, some not. But I thought if anything, it was a nice break from the beach. I am so glad we came. And cannot believe I had not heard about this place before (saw a friend on FB that went). Every employee we came in contact with was friendly and helpful...from the front staff to the concession stands. The park was clean. And so much to see...from the turtles, birds to the large sea turtles and sharks. We saw two shows..the sea lions and then the bottle nose dolphins. Both were about 20-30 minutes...which was perfect in length. Very entertaining for both of us. We had $20 gulf bucks they gave us which took care of our food and drink for the day which was nice. The 45 minute dolphin encounter was awesome and I think my daughter will remember it for a long time.
