    In addition to the park's general exhibits and shows, you can customize your visit by opting for the animal encounters of your choosing (most run 15-25 minutes in length). For visitors who want the fullest experience possible, the snorkeling activity lasts one hour and the VIP training experience lasts 5 hours. All other activities are much shorter and can be mixed and matched to your liking.
