    All the sea life was beautiful to watch. They had everything from sea turtles, aquatic fish, Dolphins and even sharks. The up close interaction with the dolphins was so much fun. It wouldn't be possible without the staff. They were very educated and so nice. A must see!!!

    A Must Do when in Destin

    We come here every year on vacation and Gulfarium is a must. We like to do a different hands on activity each year. Their employees are extremely friendly. The food is inexpensive and good. We bring back their souvenir cups each year for $1 drinks.
