Programs and Experiences

Dolphins Plus offers a variety of marine mammal interaction programs, including Guided Natural Dolphin Swims, Structured Dolphin Swims, and Shallow Water Encounters. These programs are designed for individuals interested in learning more about dolphins in a safe, natural seawater environment.

* Due to insurance reasons, pregnant women are unable to participate in our dolphin swims, but are welcome to sign up for the Kissed By a Dolphin Program.

In addition to swimming with dolphins, each visitor will participate in an educational briefing about dolphin natural history. Our highly trained staff covers topics such as dolphin anatomy, social behavior, reproductive biology, echolocation, conservation, and what to expect during the swim. This is followed by a sensational in-water program with our dolphins or sea lions that you will remember for a lifetime!

All participants must understand the English language and should be comfortable in deep water in which they will be unable to stand. Please bring sunscreen, towels, and a change of clothes. Dolphins Plus provides all additional, necessary equipment at no additional charge.

Structured Swim With Dolphins

Our Structured dolphin swims are offered daily at 9:15 am, 1:00 pm, and 3:00 pm. This is not a snorkeling with dolphins program, but participants need to be able to swim, and feel comfortable in 10 – 15 feet of water wearing a flotation device.
