Royal Dolphin Swim Overview

Go beyond your dolphin swim experience and enjoy The Royal Dolphin Swim. This intimate hour long program begins with a brief orientation with your trainer and then you enter the dolphins’ all-natural habitat to meet these incredible animals and learn all about dolphins.

Meet, hug, pet, and learn all about one of our amazing Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins in their deep water all-natural habitat for the first ½ of the program, then enjoy even more dolphin time in our private lagoon beach area for the remaining half hour. Here, you will enjoy meeting and interacting with two of our friendly dolphins in the most intimate and natural of settings, our lagoon beach. Shallow water activities with the dolphins include an amazing dorsal tow, star turns, cradling and hugging the dolphin as well as an exciting foot-push with a boogie board. This memorable dolphin interactive program allows you to experience our animals in the ultimate dolphin swim experience.

In this program, trainers ensure each guest enjoys a high degree of interaction with the dolphins, all while teaching you about these amazing animals and their all-natural marine habitat.

Our professional photo & video staff will be capturing your encounter so that you will have a chance to take home incredible souvenirs of your once-in-a-lifetime experience.
