With only one review we were not sure what to expect. However, we got a very beautiful experience on a nice boat, with a nice crew, all you can eat fish and chips and all you can drink water and wine. Tip: bring snacks as the food and drinkings is served after 1,5 hour os sailing :) We would recommend this trip to everyone!

On the whole quite OK, better book without lunch and take something with you and save the money (very long waiting time and not really appealing "PASTA"). The staff was always friendly and helpful! The dolphin show was awesome! We had a nice day.

Simon from Offenburg,, Germany It was super nice the whole park you can only recommend very clean everything, very many interesting topics. The people were very nice too. Food was great, the shows were perfect. Will be back just perfect.

It was a pity that most of the slides were from 1.40m. Therefore not usable for our 7 year old child.

Great experience!!!! Highly recommended! We will remember this!!!!
