The name Dolfinarium says it all. It is a combination of an aquarium and a dolphin park. The main focus and excitement in the park are the shows. There is a sea lion show, walrus show, and of course the major dolphin show. The dolphin show was made into a cute story involving both the trainers and the dolphins with some acrobatics incorporated. The show was so enjoyable that my children still love to watch the video I took of it.
The animals can to be seen even when there is no show going on. There are viewing areas where you can enjoy watching the dolphins and other animals swim and play in their natural habitat.
The Dolfinarium is extremely child friendly. There is a fun playground on site with a huge slide that children can play on in between animal shows and viewings.
