What a great experience! The staff was spectacular!! They were energetic, friendly, quick to offer assistance, and very knowledgeable. The animals were treated well, and with respect. The lunch was tasty. The facilities were clean and well cared for. My daughters loved the time spent with the dolphins, and holding the lovebirds. All of the animal shows were informational and entertaining. We enjoyed time swimming in the reef, and at dolphin beach. The waterslides were fun as well. Kudos to the staff at Ocean World for creating a very positive, memorable experience. Time and money well spent!!! Thank you!!!

The dolphin swim exceeded our expectations! The guides were amazing with Niagara! We loved the dancing, hugging, kissing & boogyboard. Everything was well organized. A place for shoes & keys; lockers available.
