ShoreTrips says...

This is unlike many of our dolphin 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.

This waterpark's main attraction is its dolphin programs. During the Encounter program, you will be surprised by the intelligence and friendliness of these wonderful marine mammals. You'll have the opportunity to hug and kiss a dolphin, as well as let it kiss you on the cheek. Marvel at your new friend while it performs a series of amazing behaviors!

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
  • Access to water park activities
  • Dolphin and sealion educational performance
  • An item from the "swimmer's menu" and soft drink
