Feeding and petting a fever of stingrays, swimming with dolphins and getting smooched by a sea lion is all in a day’s work at Gulf World Marine Park.Panama City Beach’s longstanding educational facility pulls double duty as the Area Coordinator for the Southeast Marine Mammal Stranding Network. And when Gulf World’s team of experts isn’t out rescuing dolphins and sea turtles, they’re educating kids and kids-at-heart about the fascinating animals with which we share our planet.

Gulf World Marine Park creates memorable experiences for the entire family through entertaining animal shows, fascinating exhibits and hands-on interaction with marine life. Gulf World hosts special events and live concerts in addition to daily animal shows and interactive programs.

Every day is show day! The park is open daily from 9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. rain or shine. Summer hours are 9:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. Gulf World Marine Park is located on Front Beach Road in Panama City Beach, east of Pier Park.
