I loved it. It is a little decrepit and creepy K'iche all rolled into one. Great shows. In your face animal and participation.   Felt like a Sea World meets Cruise Ship as far as scope and overall value. In other words, it feels like a Sea World, but not on 500 acres. On maybe 4. So you really feel the intimacy with the sea life. Friend...

It has been quite awhile since I've been here, but I did go once and have never forgotten the experience. I was excited to go as I'd always driven by and it intrigued me. But unfortunately, it was extremely disappointing. We entered through the gift shop and went to find a show and saw one for the sea lions that had just begun. My husband, son and I sat down in the bleachers and began watching the show. The animal trainer was talking and after about 5 - 10 minutes in the middle of her sentence she interrupted herself, looked at my family and in front of the entire audience singled us out and asked us to leave the group! She said this was a private tour and we would need to go and find one of the other shows....

My family and I visited Theater of the Sea this past weekend. It was a refreshing, low-key approach to marine life shows, compared to SeaWorld and other animal parks. The admission was only $26 and included several live shows, a beach lagoon to snorkel in, a ride on a bottomless boat, a nature walk, as well as additional paid swims, such as dolphins, sting rays, etc. We spent several hours here, most of it in the beach lagoon snorkeling with blue parrotfish. The sea lion show was most memorable, and my son got a kiss from one of them, which he has enjoyed talking about. I appreciated the fact that the animals are in natural lagoons, in more of their native environment than at SeaWorld or other aquariums. As ...

Park admission includes dolphin show, sea lion show, guided marine life tour and a 5-minute bottomless boat ride. This is an educational and entertaining marine-animal park and shows are up-close and personal, and is the second oldest park of its kind in the world; the animals live there in natural saltwater lagoons, such as Atlantic bottlenose dolphins, California sea lions, sea turtles, tropical and game fish, sharks, stingrays, crocodiles, alligators, marine invertebrates and birds of prey. While some of the animals were collected and others were born at Theatre of the Sea, many cannot be released because of prolonged contact with humans and/or injuries sustained in the wild. This is hugely important duri...
