If you've never touched a Dolphin, you must do the Dolphin Encounter! There are also options to swim with dolphins in their lagoon as well as in the open ocean. Check it out if you have time.

This is a nice experience to have. A bit pricey but nice memories....worth doing if you never swim with dolphins before...if you did it once already then you are not missing anything special.

My husband swam with the dolphins at the Dolphin academy 3/5/13 and had the time of his life. He was in the water with them for 1 hour and in his time alone with them they shook his hand, kissed him and two of them pulled him through the water. He also had time to swim along with them. I took many great photos and there are also professional photos available for purchase. They take special care with children and even have special multiple day programs for children available. We were very impressed with the trainers and the whole program and plan to bring our granddaughters one day.

daughter did the swim with the dolphins which she has done before but they had a lot more interaction with the dolphins here and you could get some great pictures with your own camera so you didnt need to spend a fortune on buying them from the academy

Spent the afternoon with our 7 year old daughter. Great time, it is open and seems more accessible than the US Zoo's and aquarium. A Seal Lion kiss was the highlight of the trip.
It is a $20 cab ride from the Renaissance Hotel, well worth the trip if you are travelling with kids.
