ShoreTrips says...

This is unlike many of our dolphin swim opportunities as the dolphins are located in a wonderful waterpark full of waterslides, a lazy river, and dolphin, sealion, and seal shows. Along with your dolphin experience, you'll be able to stay at the park and play all day.

Imagine the thrill of playing with the dolphins! Action and speed make this program the most popular, as it really lets you interact with these friendly marine mammals. The program begins with a briefing about the dolphins and an explanation of the activities you will experience.

From your submerged platform in the water, you will be able to interact with the dolphins, including the very popular dolphin kiss photo.

Then you will enter the water (life jackets required) for a speedy ride through the water for the dorsal tow as you hold on to their fins. Next is the highlight of your time with the dolphins--the foot push. Feel all their strength as they push you up and through the water by the bottom of your feet. Truly the experience of a lifetime!

Each session is one hour, with 30 minutes of swim time. Group size is limited to 10 people to ensure that you have a very personal experience.

Our professional photographers will capture these magical moments for you. Photo prices vary based on the package you purchase.

You can continue on with your fun at the park when you are finished, making this a day to remember.

The cost of the dolphin encounter includes admission to the water park to ensure a fun-filled, action-packed day.

  • On this tour you will:
  • Touch the dolphins
  • Kiss the dolphins
  • Do a dorsal tow with the dolphins
