Tropical River: The Tropical River flows through the aviary and has slower and swifter currents. There are ruins and other sights in the water to explore, or you can lay back and go with the flow. The lifeguards often swim laps in it on their breaks. Photo submitted by R.K Gose

The Dolphin Lagoon: They do not allow you to take your camera into the water, because the dolphins see them as toys. The trainers show the group some of the hand signs so that the group can direct the dolphin to perform a trick. Photo submitted by R.K Gose
