We had a great time at the beach, great transportation, driver and guide. However i would make sure you book directly with grey lines Orlando instead of using a third party like this, we picked the express option with a food card/play card yet didn’t receive that. I also saw the amount grey lines Orlando was paid and it was 100+ cheaper than what i paid here. I spoke to the guide about it because i was expecting my food card like everybody else and she said they got one because they booked that option directly through them but i was supposed to get mine from get your guide yet didn’t, i even saw her registration papers and it was not marked as me having picked that option. Overall it was a great trip if only i knew i could hook with the company directly.

Fantastic! Lovely and dedicated staff. I got a VIP experience of the aquarium and it was an indescribable experience. Have followed the aquarium for many years and I could not have dreamed of a better place to visit.

The trip is worth it. We did the combination with boat trip + dolphin. Guide was friendly and Clearwater also a nice place. The return trip could have been even later. We left there again at 4 p.m.

It was amazing to watch the dolphins come up to the window and interact with you. I Love the fact that this is a rehab facility for the dolphins and sea turtles.

It was very fun, I spent the whole day there with the looking around and then the 90 min sealife safari
