Dolphin Encounter and Water Park

Have the experience of a lifetime as you and your companions interact with dolphins in a sensational and safe environment in small groups of up to 20 guests.

Your professional instructor will teach you about dolphins, their environment, and their behavior. You will also learn several training techniques during this approximately 20-minute orientation session. Then, you'll be ready to stand on a platform in the water and play with the dolphins! This includes petting and kissing the dolphins, an experience you and the family will never forget! The total experience time including the orientation is 45 minutes. A professional photographer will be on hand taking pictures.

After the Dolphin Encounter, enjoy the outstanding water park where the Dolphin Encounter is located, including water slides, a lazy river, a dolphin show, and a sea lion show.

The cost of the dolphin encounter includes admission to the water park, ensuring a fun-filled, action-packed day. You may observe someone participating in a dolphin program by paying the admission fee into the park.

Please Note: The tour duration is for the dolphin interaction only. It does not include time at the water park, as this is on your own, or the time required to transfer to and from the park.

This was one of the best excursions on a 16 day cruise. Dolphins were fun to interact with and amazing when they put on their own show. Park has lots of other things to do and really good reasonable food, Lazy river was being rehabbed but didn't hurt the trip that much. would do it again

The dolphin encounter package includes lunch and admission to the water park is a plus. If it includes the zip line, it would be great!

The Dolphin encounter was GREAT. We were a party of 4...including a 5 yr. old. She was enthralled! At first was intimidated, then was an active participant...kissed the dolphin, shook his fins..etc. The guide was an expert making her feel comfortable. Because we could not wear sun screen on my granddaughter, we were concerned about her getting burned,(We wore a t-shirt and hat)the tarp completely protected us. Very smart idea. Also, enjoyed the water park. I would highly recommend this excursion to everyone. The cost was $50.00 cheaper, per person, then the cruise ships. Great value.
