Begin with an informative introduction session with dolphin trainers who will help you understand the dolphins' anatomy, physiology, natural history, and fascinating underwater communication skills. Then it's time to enter the water! In the specially designed educational pools, you'll have the opportunity to examine the dolphin's physical characteristics while rubbing and petting its smooth skin. The trainers will demonstrate several signals and show how to feed them. You'll get a chance to try for yourself; the dolphins will shake your hand and give you a friendly kiss!|
