Dolphin Encounter Experience

Highlights / General details
You’ll enjoy an informative classroom session where you'll gain insight into these intelligent and fun-loving mammals. During an Encounter, the dolphin swims to you while you stand in just a few feet of water. You’ll have approximately 30 minutes to do things like shake hands, share a friendly kiss and even try out some of our training signals. However, there is no swimming involved (except by our dolphins and they’re pretty good), so you enjoy a relaxing and comfortable experience. You’ll also enjoy a full day of shows and exhibits at Miami Seaquarium.

A 15 minute educational classroom presentation prior to entering the water.
A 30 minute shallow water experience including touching, feeding and playing with a dolphin. You'll even learn what its like to train a dolphin, getting up-close and personal like never before.
