Dolphin Beach Swim

In-Water Dolphin Beach Interaction

Get your feet wet and come play along with our bottlenose dolphin family in a whole new way. 

Discovery Point’s Dolphin Beach has a water depth of 20 inches. Perfect for groups who want to meet and play with dolphins in a shallow water setting. Your group will participate in unforgettable moments, and leave with a deeper understanding and appreciation for these magnificent marine mammals.

While the in-water portion of your interaction will last about 20 minutes, the overall experience included with your reservation lasts closer to 1 ½ hours.

Guests will need a bathing suit for this program. Please arrive to Discovery Point with your bathing suit already on.

 

Here’s what to expect during your In-Water Dolphin Beach Interaction:

  • Suit up: Your program includes a complimentary wetsuit vest and towel, all to be returned once finished. You’ll find a changing room with lockers and showers with soap, shampoo and conditioner.
  • Get ready: Before you enter the water, we’ll spend a few moments along the shore talking about these awesome animals, from their behavior to communication to some of our parks’ leadership in dolphin research and rescue. This includes Q&A with an animal ambassador.
  • Wade in: Accompanied by a trainer, you will wade into the shallow water and get acquainted with our dolphins through behaviors, feeds and rubdowns. This program does not include a dorsal fin tow and does not allow participants to enter deeper water depths.
