Zoo Marine Algarve - Review

Often touted as the biggest attraction around Albufeira, the Zoo Marine Algarve water park is situated in Guia, a couple of kilometres from the city. Block a whole day in your roster for this park! It offers you much more than the average water park experience with a myriad tropical fish, seals, sharks and dolphins as well as tropical birds and birds of prey from across the globe showcased here in all their glory. The shows are captivating and many a visitor has noticed how the animals here are treated with much more sensitivity and care than any other water park they have visited.

A fascinating journey for adults and children alike, this is a great place to spend some time with your family as you encounter wildlife, and learn about its conservation; the whole experience enhanced by the use of top-notch technology.Using digital 4D animation, the Zoo Marine Algarve water park uses technology innovatively to amplify the visitors’ experience.

The Aquarium-Museum lets you explore the vaguely ominous world of sharks through 20 different eco-systems, and there is also a dolphin swim that you can embark upon - a well-organised operation that is professionally carried out that lets you actually get in the water with these gorgeous, intelligent animals. The dolphin trainers are friendly and collaborative and are happy to tell you more about the dolphins and their training. The park also runs a rehabilitation centre that works on reintroducing a range of marine species into their natural habitat, with the assistance of a team of professionals and volunteers.

This Algarve water park places a decided emphasis on an educational philosophy without compromising on the fun factor, making it a very wholesome pick. Cherry on the cake - the park is well organized and very easy to navigate, with all the attractions scattered out in spacious grounds surrounded by lush lawns, swimming pools and palm trees.

Zoo Marine Algarve, Albufeira Reviews

  • We visited Zoomarine about a week ago. This was best experience that I ever had.It is a fun place for both children and adults. The best part was the dolphin show. You could see the dolphins and the crew's doing amazing tricks,in and outside of the pool/ocean. There is also a beautiful beach area where you can chill out and a wave pool you can have fun. Don't miss the 4D Movie show it's wonderful. Must visit if you have kids great place even food and drinks inside the park is reasonable price.

  • Brilliant day out, perfect timing for the shows, you have plenty of time to get from one to the other. The shows are very educational, all about protecting the environment etc. But sometimes you get more human acting than animals doing something. Prices inside for food are good too. Pool areas are great, some great looking slides and fun for the smallests. It would be better if they had at least the baby pool heated though.

  • We caught the tour bus to the zoomarine, arriving at 10:45, but were disappointed to find that we had to be back on the bus at 4pm. A quick visit to the dolphin desk and our bus back was moved back to 6pm :-) We enjoyed all of the shows. The only one we didn't manage to catch was the birds of prey. There are several feeding stations of the fish and turtles. Pay 1€ for a handful of food and you're set. We decided on the spot to participate in the dolphin experience, which as we were already in the park was cheaper than we'd seen advertised 110€ to participate and 2€ to watch. The dolphin team were very helpful and made the experience an absolute joy for both of us (the participant gets a free towel, flip flops and a drink after and the watcher gets a free drink). There's tonnes of information points as well as happy looking animals and very clean enclosures. Food wise the options are decent but prices do vary. We found that the tapas menu from the restaurant near the pool was the best value (potato wedges, onion rings, mozzarella sticks and chicken wings with either a large pop or a large beer for 8.50€ each). To enjoy all aspects of the park you either need to get there super early and leave at closing or do it over 2 days (at the moment they are offering the second day for 8€). The pool is quite extensive with a wave pool, water slides and children's play pool. Due to time constraints we have never been able to fully male use of the pool part of the park.

  • One of the best attractions we visited, think "mini Sea-World" and you won't be far wrong. Dolphin & Birds of Prey shows were good, parrots and seals less impressive. Food available is OK but we took a picnic on the second day. Well worth the two day trip.

  • A fun day out. The dolphin show was amazing and we enjoyed the other shows too. We went with a 7 year old, 5 year old and 1 year old and there was something for everyone. It was April when we went and wetsuits would have been a good idea, so we were only in the water for a short time. However this meant we went to quite a few shows and went on lots of rides - which there were never long queues for.
