Dolphin Encounter

Dolphin Encounter

What better a way to learn about the Pacific Bottlenose dolphin than directly from these loving marine mammals in their own environment. Learn about the sea’s most-inspiring mammals from our expert dolphin trainers alongside the clear waters of dolphin stadium. A brief instruction about the dolphin’s anatomy, physiology and social behaviors will help you to find a new appreciation for their uniqueness.

The Introduction

Start with a brief introduction poolside with the knowledgeable trainers to help you understand a bit more about the dolphins and get a sneak-peak into their wonderfully exciting world.

Get Closer

Jump into the shallow end of the dolphin pool, where you will get acquainted with your curious new friend. The dolphins love meeting new people, so don’t be surprised if the dolphin gives you a kiss and lets out a playful squeak while you rub his smooth skin. Use the hand signals that you learned in the introduction to communicate with them and give him a fishy treat to reward his tricks.

Magical Moments

Humans have always been curious about these friendly marine mammals, but most people don’t realize that they are even more curious about us than we are about them. Everyone that experiences this program will leave feeling the warmth and intelligence that the dolphins inherently possess. All groups are kept small so that every single guest can experience several unforgettable moments with the ocean’s friendliest animal.
