Dolphin Designs

This interactive program combines your passion for dolphins with your passion for art! Participants will choose up to three colors for the dolphin to paint on a canvas that the participant holds over the water. Once the painting is complete, you’ll have the opportunity to interact with the dolphin artist. Getting this close to the aquatic artists means there’s a chance you might get wet! Advance reservations are highly recommended. Due to demand, spaces may not be available on a walk-in basis.
