ShoreTrips says...

Transfers are included in the price for area hotels. If your hotel is out of the pick-up range, we will contact you and discuss transportation options.

If you just go jump out in the middle of the ocean, it isn't likely that you will run into a dolphin. If, by a miracle, you do run into a dolphin, it is even less likely they will get close enough for you to hug. If, by an even greater miracle, you are able to hug this dolphin, please let us know as we will follow you where you go next. For the sake of success rate and to avoid questioning your sanity, we recommend that you take this opportunity to get up-close-and-personal with one of the ocean's most cunning creatures!

Your program begins with an explanation on the lifestyle of dolphins. With a better understanding of these fascinating creatures, and a life jacket strapped on, you will enter the water with your trainer by descending a set of stairs to a submerged platform. The water will be waist deep and provides the perfect setting to interact with some of the smartest animals in the world. Here, our friendly dolphins, that are known for their playful nature, will give you a handshake, a kiss, and a hug.

Photos will be taken of your dolphin kiss and will be available for purchase after your encounter.
