Trainer For A Day

You’ve heard it said that being a dolphin trainer must be the coolest job in the world, and now you have the opportunity to find out firsthand while participating in Marineland’s Trainer for a Day program.

Your day starts with a guided tour of our dolphin deck and then the fun begins with our training team. You will play a role in our morning sessions and help us get the day started. Then it’s time for you to participate in Dolphin Encounter program which is a shallow-water platform program. To follow will be some midday training sessions and our public training demonstration that you will take part in. Next comes your Swim Adventure program. During your day you will attend an animal training lecture as well as participate in a Dolphin Designs program with one of our dolphin artists!

Every day is different in the life of a trainer, so no two programs will ever be alike. By the end of your day, you’ll know who has the best job in the world. Advance reservations are highly recommended. Due to demand, spaces may not be available on a walk-in basis.
