Dolphin Encounter

5 business days advanced reservation required.

 Dolphin EncounterDolphin Encounter

This fun-filled shallow water program is a great way for young and old alike to have

an unforgettable experience with a dolphin. You’ll enjoy an informative classroom session

where you'll gain insight into these intelligent and fun-loving mammals. During an Encounter,

the dolphin swims to you while you stand in just a few feet of water. You’ll have approximately

30 minutes to do things like shake hands, share a friendly kiss and even try out some of our

training signals. However, there is no swimming involved (except by our dolphins and they’re pretty good),

so you enjoy a relaxing and comfortable experience. You’ll also enjoy a full day of shows and exhibits

at Miami Seaquarium
