Theater of the Sea offers a tropical garden setting to meet a variety of animal life, many non-releasable due to injuries or human imprinting. Our lagoon is home to dolphins, sea lions, turtles, fish, sharks, stingrays and marine invertebrates. Displays include birds of prey, alligators and crocodile. Ride the bottomless boat!
