Florida’s Gulfarium Marine Show Aquarium


On Saturday, we drove to the Gulfarium for an outing.  Annual passes are 20% off right now, so after we found out how much it would cost us to bring our family of four, we decided to purchase an annual pass.  Shows start at 10am and are set up so that you can move from show to show, back to back if you wish.  We arrived a little before 10, so we headed straight to the dolphin show.  After that, we watched the sea lion show and then the multi species show.  As we walked from one show to the next, we stopped to check out the exhibits.  There is a small touch pool with horseshoe crabs and hermit crabs.  There is a shark tank, penguins, and gators.  My kids loved the gators the best.  It took them awhile to spot the gators and then all of the sudden they appeared!  There are various feedings that occur throughout the day-stingrays, penguins and otters.  We spent about 2 hours in the park and overall my kids had a good time. 


Things to know before you go:

  • It was hot when we went.  There is some shaded seating but don’t forget your sunglasses and a hat so you can see while the shows are going on.  Also, print off this coupon for a buy one, get one soda. 
  • If you are going this weekend, print off this coupon-buy two adult tickets, get one child ticket free.  This offer expires August 31. 
  • If you are thinking about going to the Gulfarium more than once in the next year, think about purchasing an annual pass.  For my family of four, it would have cost us about 55 dollars.  We purchased the Dual plus One annual pass for 68 dollars.  When my little one is no longer free, we will just purchase her a ticket with our annual pass discount.  Be sure to bring the coupon with you.  They will not honor the 20% off without the coupon.
