Who would miss a dolphin show? The mammals are so lovely and well trained. The backstop of the ocean is just beautiful. Can be windy and cold in December. Don’t forget to stay for the diver show too. This activity is free.

Breathtaking show with dolphins and a pilot whale. The animals were full of energy and well cared for. The bond between them and their trainers was very evident. Amazing show.

Sure these animals are amazing and an encounter with them is always an experience. However, one has to feel awful about the conditions they are in and the way they are made to perform non stop. No animal should be living in a tiny cage...More

Free exhibit, show runs approx 25mins. Quite a crowd gathers for this. In the afternoon only half of the seating is shaded. Some start turning up1/2 hour before hand. Highlight for most visiting. Show is presented in Japanese only, though it is easy to follow...More
