Dolphin Cove Underwater Viewing

Dolphin Cove

Watch a playful group of bottlenose dolphins both above and below the surface of the water at Dolphin Cove.

Dolphin Cove is one of the largest interactive dolphin pools in the world, where you can see dolphins play and jump above the water, or see them gracefully swim in the underwater viewing area.  Don't forget to see the dolphins in action at the Dolphin Days show, and to visit our dolphin mothers and calves at the Dolphin Nursery.
