From beginning to end the experience was top notch. Everyone was friendly and experienced. We took some pictures in the observatory and my kids got to see shark feedings and were given shark teeth to bring home- they were thrilled. The dolphin experience was great. You have to do atleast the touch and feed to get the whole experience though.... More

Wonderful experience. Did immersion. Trainers and interns very knowledgeable. Time with dolphins was a lifetime experience. Our group did touch and feel with the little kids and they had a blast. Bought the package of downloadable pictures and glad I did. I am able to look back and relive experience.

We took our grandkids here and they had such a fantastic time. They were able to have a hands on experience, feed them, rub their belly, talk to them and just the thrill of being in such an intimate nature with these amazing beings. Its an experience that will last a lifetime.

Can not say enough positive things about this place! So clean, educational, and the staff obviously has a passion for what they do. We did the dolphin feed/touch with our 5 yr old. Worth the price!!! For the minute we got to Marineland we were shown around to the turtles and sharks, and given so much information on all of... More

This beautiful surf side setting provides a unique opportunity to learn about the marine animals who live there. Staff members are entertaining (especially Nick!) and well trained and offer a wealth of information about dolphins, sharks and sea turtles and the important research being done at Marineland. My group did the "touch and feed" experience, which was thrilling. There is... More

Have wanted to swim with dolphins for a long time. Went on Thanksgiving Day for the 1pm "Discover Dolphins" session (20 minutes with them in shallow water). Didn't think about it ahead of time but since the rest of the world was busy eating their turkey and dressing it was just the trainer, the dolphin, and me!! It was a... More

Overpriced and overrated. A walk on the beach would have been more enjoyable. Watched dolphins swim in their pool and saw two large turtles. Not worth the money. Poorly kept property.

For as long as I can remember I have wanted to swim with a dolphin, and this experience did not disappoint..... I took away some excellent photos to help relive the experience over and over again. From the time I entered the Park staff were friendly, informative and so obviously cared for the well being and preservation of their animals.... More

We came to Marineland back in the late 60's and remember how much larger Marineland was with the dolphin shows. Although Marineland no longer offers entertainment and focuses on education, today it is a depressing place to visit. It looks "let go," The admission prices are expensive, the grounds are not very well kept (the hurrican in October did not... More
