Dolphin Point

Observe the lyrical movements and playful antics of bottlenose dolphins from just inches away at Dolphin Point.

This is an open water exhibit that offers guests the opportunity to come face-to-face with these magnificent animals. Dolphin Point also features a Sea Otter exhibit where guests can watch playful sea otters dive for crabs and shrimp. There is also the opportunity to explore interactive learning experiences and ask questions of park educators.

Dolphin Point reaches new heights with its all-new public interactive dolphin connections. These connections provide an opportunity for Members & guests to connect with the dolphins and trainers. Plus, some will have the opportunity to touch, feed, or maybe even help give the dolphins training signals. Check your park map for daily dolphin connection times.
