Dolphin Encounter Experience

The Dolphin Encounter Experience offers each guest a unique experience that brings you closer to an Atlantic Bottlenose dolphin than you ever dreamed possible! Your program begins with a fun, interactive orientation, briefly covering the natural history of dolphins, animal training techniques and ocean conservation. On the Dolphin Encounter float, you will stand on a waist-deep submerged platform and experience a heart-warming kiss, a hug, a dance with the dolphins. Your dolphin trainer will combine elements of hands-on contact, education, fun, laughter and adventure to make this an unforgettable experience.
