My family and I went to Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park on a recreational trip. This place was close to our house that’s why we chose it. We landed for the ocean lion show 15 minutes ahead of schedule and discovered numerous individuals sparing seats with sacks and were not able to sit together. The show was not at all enlightening, with no water gymnastics by any means. We planned to see the dolphin exhibit however had to wait for 1 hour to see it. Everyone in the staff was not helpful and neither answered any of our questions. Dolphin show was not engaging, more like a school than a show. It had almost no water aerobatic exhibition. If we needed to interact with creatures the costs would extend from $19-$100+. Additionally, they stopped my husband to take any photos so we would purchase \”their\” overrated pictures. So both the shows turned out to be very expensive. This spot is overrated for no reason. We purchased the VIP Trainer experience for my son which incorporated a portion of the individual encounters and furthermore shadowing a coach during a whole dolphin show. I thought the best part would be getting the chance to work with the coach during the dolphin show yet from that point forward; the dolphin experiences they gave him were exhausting. Exceptionally dinky and fundamental. The coaches were not educated or benevolent. For reasons unknown, the VIP Trainer did exclude anything with the crocs. Likewise, the experience is publicized as \”you\’ll learn and practice everything necessary to prepare and think about the majority of our marine warm-blooded animal occupants, including dolphins!\” But there was nothing done during the VIP involvement concerning \”minding\” for the marine well-evolved creatures. My son was hoping to figure out how to help clean they\’re fenced in areas and how to set up their nourishment and such, yet that wasn\’t a piece of the experience. For what you get, I consider the VIP Trainer experience to be overrated. In case you\’re going to purchase 1 experience, my recommendation would be the \”find dolphins\” experience (though that too isn’t worth the money). Shows run persistently on a calendar and it was precise during our visit which was the biggest drawback. Our last spot was the otter chat and we were anticipating that the attendants should get the otters to make their noises for us, hence the \”chat\” yet the chat was only a manager telling about the otters, which is fascinating only if you don\’t know about them, otherwise boring. The snack bar was another bad experience; the staff was not well disposed or accommodating. I ordered the nacho and cheddar, chips were stale and the cheddar was so old it was orange rather than yellow. The breakfast we ordered was cold which was supposed to be hot. Saw the whole park in around 30 minutes as the size is too small. Do not waste your money in this worthless spot.
