My wife found the Dolphins so much fun. I took lots of pictures with her and them. The guides are great and make sure you gave a good time. Also it's very informative.

The demonstrations were frequent, interesting and informative. You can get very close up view. The trainers are amazing with the dolphins and their knowledge about them is so impressive!

My husband booked the trainer for a day program for my 40th birthday. I had a blast! It is definitely worth the money as you get over 3 hours learning about what it means to be a trainer. You get to prep food for dolphins, feed dolphins, learn all about caring for these beautiful animals. A day I will always... More

We had 2 10 year old girls in the program where you enter the water. They had more time with the dolphins than we've had at other places. Also, the program was unique in that they got to be in the water with the dolphin giving it a hug (not just standing on a platform or in shallow water). The... More

My youngest daughter did not meet the height requirements for the Dolphin Discovery so I booked both my girls for the Dockside Dolphins encounter. I that the cost was very reasonable. If possible, the viewing area for photo taking is a bit far for camera phones. They offer a professional photo service which is somewhat expensive but the photos were... More

My kids did this twice in the past 2 years - worth the splurge. Photos after are expensive, so take your own.

My daughter and I really enjoyed the interaction with the dolphins. The staff was very friendly! I would recommend the dolphin connection to any family. Priceless memories and pictures to take home to treasure.

Ten of our family members participated in this wonderful and educational experience. The age range was from 8 to 76 years old. The experience began with an orientation class on dry land above the dolphin enclosures, but the dolphins knew we were there and began to perform tricks on their own to get our attention. The children could barely wait!... More
