The Sea Life Park was fantastic. However upon my arrival, I was told the tickets I got through Tom Barefoots were incorrect. I had wanted the full admission to include swimming with the dolphins. I was told I received the tickets for a different event. Luckily the person at the window was very nice and helped us with the issue.
