Trainer for a Day
During a trainer led program, participants will get to experience a hands-on encounter with one of our dolphins. Please see our Dolphin Encounters page for more detailed information on each program.
Guests must bring their own swimsuits and towels. We are an outdoor facility, so we also recommend water sunscreen, especially on hot days. Reef Safe sunscreen may be purchased in our gift shop. Changing facilities are available.
ALL jewelry must be removed prior to your encounter, including body jewelry. No surgical or permanent jewelry is allowed in the water.
Program size varies depending on the program and the animal management plan.
