Dolphins Plus’ Structured Swim is a great way to swim with dolphins in the Florida Keys and enjoy a thrilling marine mammal adventure of a lifetime! In this deep-water program, guests experience the speed, power, and gentle precision of our Atlantic bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) via a variety of trained behaviors. Guests begin the program with an educational briefing and acquire information concerning dolphin anatomy and biology, marine mammal and ocean conservation, and detailed descriptions of the dolphin interactions.

Following the briefing, swimmers are divided into smaller groups, in an effort to maximize and personalize each dolphin interaction. In this swim with dolphins program, guests are asked to enter a natural, ocean-water lagoon (12-15 feet deep) and tread water, while wearing a flotation vest. Guests take turns entering the water and interact directly with the dolphins. Each swimmer will experience fast-paced behaviors such as foot pushes and dorsal tows, participate in powerful bows over hoops and poles, interact with intimate behaviors such as handshakes, belly rubs, and kisses, and even test their skills as trainers, while giving the dolphins hand signals. A dolphin trainer guides the dolphins and humans through a series of fun and exciting behaviors and directs each dolphin swim. Participants should plan on spending 1 to 1.5 hours at Dolphins Plus from arrival to departure.

We did the structured swim and absolutely loved it. Our kids have a completely new respect for animals and the environment. Thank you.

Easy to find on the Gulf side in Key Largo, Dolphin Plus is AMAZING! Having done several programs throughout the Keys, this is by far the best. I did the structured swim with my mother and daughter. Memories of a lifetime. Do yourself a favor and flip for the photographer- it's worth it, terrific pictures.

An amazing experience! Took 7 year old daughter and loved the interaction we had with the structured swim. The activities we did with the dolphins were so fun and you could tell the dolphins loved what they were doing with you. We had B.B. and Isaac - two teenage dolphins who were so much fun to watch interact and to play with.

For our daughter’s Christmas gift this year, our family of four participated in the structured dolphin swim together, and wow was it amazing! We are all so glad that we did it together, rather than just watching, as being in the water with these amazing intelligent creatures was awe inspiring!
