Fantasy Dolphin Day

Immerse Yourself in the World of Dolphins

Enjoy an exciting afternoon that’s exclusively reserved for you, your friends and family at our world-renowned education and research facility. 

Your adventure begins with a personal tour by our friendly staff and introductions to our bottlenose dolphins and sea lions.  Each member of the family has a unique story and personality and you’ll get to know them all!  Are you interested in our cognition research, how we train and work with them each day, or how we provide their excellent care?  Pick a topic and we’ll customize a narrated behavior session with the dolphins to your preference.

Your Fantasy Dolphin Day includes personal, hands-on interactions.  Slip into the water for the non-stop fun of a Dolphin Encounter swim with the dolphins.  Experience working like a trainer with these amazing animals in a Signal Session where you’ll ask them for their spectacular behaviors and cheer their accomplishments!

Feast on an elegant four-course dinner featuring the freshest local seafood and signature dishes prepared by a famed Florida Keys restaurant while you toast your day with wines and beer.

As the brilliant sun sinks lower in the sky, the dolphins entertain you once more with a spectacular, musical Sunset Celebration.

At day’s end, you’ll leave with memories that last forever, high quality pictures taken during your dolphin experiences on a commemorative CD, and the new-found friendships you made with the dolphins of DRC.
