This was a very long worthwhile experience! The program is a better value than any in Key Largo! Coupons online for dolphin experience and spectator.. $5 was all for spectators! Trip was $190 with coupon, but water time and interaction more than other trips.

We recently visited Dolphins Plus. Only two in our party did the 'structured' swim with the dolphins. The structured swim is in deep water and more interactive than the shallow water experience. We listened in on a very informative talk (15-20 mins) about dolphin behavior...More

Wonderful experience with the dolphins and great team of trainers that are mostly biologists and behavior scientists. Some of them even did university studies on dolphins, see the cases in the visitor center. The swimming with the dolphins must be awesome. I was just taking...More
