Add to Itinerary

Here is an opportunity for the young ones (and the young at heart) to get an introduction to a real dolphin.

The program begins with an explanation of dolphins, how they live, and what makes them so special and interesting. After donning life jackets, you'll enter the water with your trainer by descending a set of stairs to a submerged platform. The water will be about waist deep. You will then have the opportunity to touch the dolphins and even receive a kiss from them.

After splashing around with the dolphins, feel free to scope out the rest of the facilities for the opportunity to interact with stingrays and go kayaking!

  • This Tour Includes:
  • Kiss and hug dolphin
  • Handshake
  • Hand Target
  • Access to other wildlife activities at dolphin facility!
