My family and I had so much fun at this port. We went to ocean world, we were able to pet dolphins because we bought the excursion, they wanted to take us on a tour to see all their exhibits but we declined and went to get something to eat, I don't really remember the food, but my fiancé said he had the best hot sauce from there. We ended up checking out their pool which was pretty cool. Then we found their bird exhibit and this was the highlight of our whole trip. We had so much fun there. We were allowed to go in the bird cages and hold the birds, we had parrots put on our shoulders, my 7 year old son and 6 year old nephew held toucans, then we went to a parakeet cage and the workers kept throwing bird seed at us which was awesome because the birds kept flying on to us and just hanging out all over our heads, arms, hands, shoes, 😂 it was so cool!

We loved this port. We purchased an excursion to Ocean World with dolphin encounter. Our family truly enjoyed this day. We have 18, 16, 13, and 3 yr old and they all had a great time! I think our surprise favorite part past the dolphins was the bird cages. They were amazing and we all really enjoyed that. We were able to hit every part of this park in the 5 hrs except the VIP beach which I think we would have to pay extra for. We also got great family photos in digital format. Love, love, loved our time at Ocean World!

They have a pool area when you get off the boat. They have a zip line, kids splash area, water slides. You don't need to do an excursion as you can just stay here. The zip line was really fun, but they have a minimum weight of 80 pounds. They will weigh you! They have a minimum age of 8 as well. The slides you have to be 48" tall whereas the slide on the boat you only have to be 42".

We left the shops area and visited the island.... Those $70 all day taxis will go down to $50 and it's worth it. Make sure to visit the brugal factory any get some rum. You can drink it in the cab!

The Outback Safari excursion was so awesome. We got to really explore the island. We got to go into a school. If you take supplies which I highly recommend please take enough for all the kids. They were so excited over a pencil. Take paper, crayons, pencils, backpacks, etc. The kids are adorable. We toured someone's house. We got to walk thru everything they grow to eat. It was just awesome. Eddy Murphy was our guide & he was great.

We did the Outback excursion and stopped at a school. We brought school supplies for the kids. They were very happy. We visited a kindergarten class that had 25 kids. We brought enough for everyone. Yoky and Miguel were awesome. Had a great time.
