Comments about Smart Destinations NEW! Dolphin Encounter by Sea Life Park (Bonus Choice with 3, 5 and 7-Day Cards):

We used this option as our bonus but the park allowed us to upgrade our package to the dolphin swim and pay the difference in price. This is a great deal and the experience was so awesome! If you love marine life you must do this. It was one of the top things on our vacation. My 11 and 12 year olds loved is as much as my 59 year old mother did...fantasic experience and outstanding value with the Go Card"
