What people are saying about Panama City Beach

This place was nowhere near the size of SeaWorld, and I didn't expect it to be. It wasn't too crowded, plenty to see. The shows were excellent! My kids loved touching the sting rays and sewing the sea turtles the best. So much fun! I highly recommend purchasing tickets on this site. It would have cost twice as much at the park!

Highly recommend Gulf World.. very cool place and the dolphin show was incredible! Be sure to line up early so you can sit in the splash zone and get wet!

We all loved the sea turtles, the sea lion show and of course the dolphin show.

Enjoyable place; especially if you have kids involved. :)

We enjoyed this very much The Dolphin Show was Great
