My wife and I did it a couple years ago. It was a great experience then. The water was quite deep in the middle, but you don’t go out that far. Waist deep was about as far as we went and we had life jackets on. The water was clean, but not clear. I don’t remember any bugs. Ocean world really was a good experience and I’d definitely recommend it. The trainers were fun to interact with and they made sure everyone had a good time.
