Is there a lot to do and see via just general admission? If you don't rush and catch a show or two, how long can you expect to spend here?

We "seniors" spent a whole morning there recently when trainers were feeding the animals. The stingray feeding was especially interesting! The trainers are very knowledgeable about their animals and took time to answer all... More
If you purchase an animal encounter, does Gulfarium take a photo for you to purchase since you cannot bring cameras with you?
