Swim with Dolphins at the best Dolphin Swim facility in Florida!
Dolphins Plus: 1-866-860-7946
The swim portion of the program is preceded by a 20-30 minute educational briefing, during which participants learn about various topics including: California sea lion habitat, feeding habits, predation, reproductive biology, threats to longevity, and conservation. Swimmers also receive information about our own California sea lions’ life histories and personalities, as well as important guidelines for conduct during the session.
Following the briefing, participants have the opportunity to meet Wono, our energetic and rambunctious California sea lion. Participants will complete a series of trained behaviors with Wono during a session mediated by one of our professional marine mammal trainers. This interaction portion of the program takes part in three stages: on a floating platform, from an underwater bench, and completely in the water. The combination of behaviors varies but may include activities such as flipper tows, kisses, hugs, high fives, jumps, splash fights, and body rubs.
The Sea Lion Encounter is a personalized program dedicated to one on one interaction with Wono. The experience is limited to two participants per session and is offered twice daily, seven days a week. To complete the in-water portion of this program, participants must be comfortable in water approximately 10-15 feet deep. Wono does enjoy interacting with her new human friends from the floating platform or bench, so accommodations may be made (with advance notice) for individuals who are uncomfortable in the water. Participants must be seven years of age or older and speak English.
