Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park

Leaping dolphins, playful sea lions, and a park packed full of exotic marine life makes Gulfarium one of the Emerald Coast's top attractions.


With dozens of exhibits, trainer chats, and one-on-one encounters with dolphins, stingrays, and reptiles, the Gulfarium offers a full day of fun for the whole family. One of the staples of Okaloosa Island’s famous Boardwalk, the Gulfarium overlooks the beautiful white sand beach and busy fishing pier. Opened in 1955 by the marine researcher, J.B. “Brandy” Siebenaler, Gulfarium has entertained millions of spectators, and helped countless animals as a scientific research center.

A full staff of dedicated professionals is waiting to entertain and educate park guests in the lives and habits of dolphins, sea lions, otters, penguins, and more.
