Dolphin Lagoon


Signature Experience Active icon

Dolphincalfandmom

There’s something about being around dolphins that speaks to our heart in a language all its own. Perhaps that’s why so many people who’ve never even been close to a dolphin dream of swimming with them one day. That day has come.

When we nearly doubled the size of our Dolphin Lagoon, we reserved a special area in its shallows for just such once-in-a-lifetime experiences in hopes of inspiring an even deeper understanding and appreciation for these magnificent animals.

While your in-water dolphin interaction will last 20-30 minutes, the overall experience included with your Dolphin Swim reservation lasts closer to 2 hours.

Here’s what to expect during your Dolphin Swim:

  • Suit up: Your Swim includes a complimentary wetsuit and towel, all to be returned after your swim. You’ll find a changing room with lockers and showers with soap, shampoo and conditioner.
  • Get ready: Before you enter the Dolphin Lagoon, we’ll spend a few moments along its shore talking about these awesome animals, from their behavior to communication to some of our parks’ leadership in dolphin research and rescue. This includes a video training portion as well as a Q&A with an animal ambassador.
  • Wade in: Accompanied by a trainer, you and a small group of guests will wade into the shallows of Dolphin Lagoon and get acquainted with one of our dolphins through hugs, kisses and rubdowns.
