Enter the dolphins’ world for an unforgettable experience as you get up close and personal with these sleek and graceful animals. Ever wondered what a dolphin feels like? This in water experience allows you to meet, play, touch, interact and learn about Atlantic bottlenose dolphins alongside a Gulfarium trainer.

If you're 8 years or older, this amazing experience is for you. The Dolphin Splash encounter is a wade program and takes place in shallow water, about 3 feet deep, so even those who cannot swim can take part!

Guests will want to come back again and again as no two Dolphin Splash encounters will be exactly the same. The behaviors experienced in each encounter are different in order to incorporate variety for the animals. The program may include feeding and giving various behavior signals while interacting with the dolphins. Who knows, you may even meet a different dolphin the next time you visit!

You'll take home a souvenir towel and one of the most memorable experiences of a lifetime!
