SeaWorld San Antonio Swim with Dolphins
In-Water Dolphin Interaction

There is something special about a dolphin that speaks to our heart. And entering the water with one is simply an unforgettable experience.

Within Discovery Point, there is a reserved lagoon for these once-in-a-lifetime experiences in the hopes of inspiring 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.


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

  • Suit up: Your program includes a complimentary wetsuit 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 water and get acquainted with one of our dolphins through behaviors, feeds, rubdowns, and a dorsal fin tow through the shallow end of the pool.
