I really enjoyed my day out here. I especially liked the part where the lion ate the penguin. The kids and wife loved it

Terrible, bizarre, sad. Don't ever go there if you don't want to be scared for life like the animals there.

Kshamenk the killer whale will swim more than 500 turns per hour in his tiny pool that is dirty and horrifyingly small. He is the only captive orca in South America. Kshamenk needs our help in order to convince the aquarium that the only decision they can take is to return Kshamenk to the wild. Kshamenk (pronounced sha-MEN-k) is a... More

I went to the park in July 2014. I wanted to see if the videos about this beautiful Orca called Kshamenk were true. All I can say I was in complete disbelief at how torturous the conditions were for all the animals at this Marine Park. The pools were incredibly small to keep a full grown orca in. I seriously...

This place has an orca named Kshamenk that has lived in tiny confines for 20 years without any family or other orcas. They need to release him as soon as possible, and please boycott this park until they do.

0/5. Concerning the Orca Kshamenk. The animal in this facilitiy lives in poor conditions: living in <1% of it's natural habitat, cut off from it's family and the world of sounds they live in. He is forced to perform in a vocally stressful, confined environment. Many Orcas become violent (attacking/killing trainers, abusing/killing other Orcas in the same tank), display sings... More

This is a shame that you keep an orca in a very small pool like this. You must release Kschamenk and do something good for once...

Whales live in terrible conditions. Extremely heartbreaking. If you are an animal lover do not pay money to go here it's too upsetting and will wreck your holiday. They should release the orca's. It's inhumane to keep them in those small pools.
