Tampa Bay, Florida
Unfortunately, you can not swim with dolphins Florida Tampa Bay because there no dolphin facilities there. The closest dolphin facility where you can do this is in Orlando, which is 1 1/2 hours away. This is at Discovery Cove. This program is very popular and sells out quickly. Usually you have to book months in advance.
Swimming with Dolphins is Only 1 1/2 hours from Tampa Bay
If you book early, Discover Cove is a great option for our Tampa Bay area guests.

Also, you will get unlimited entrance to Sea World and Aquatica for 14 days before or after you dolphin program, a great value.
Only Want the Dolphin Swim Only? Drive to St Augustine…
Your next best option would be the swim with dolphins St Augustine Florida, which is about 3 hours away by car. I know this may sound far but it might be a great day trip to the oldest city in the United States, started in the late 1500’s.
St Augustine is on the East Coast of Florida, just North of Daytona Beach. It’s an easy drive across I-4 east to I-95 North and you will be in St Augustine in no time. The program in St Augustine is amazing because the facility is right on the Ocean and spending time with the dolphins here is breath taking. This program here is only dolphins and nothing else. So you can get in and out quickly if you like or hang with the dolphins and the beach.
Also, we realize many of you that come to Tampa Bay drive down from the Mid-West, Chicago and Michigan area. That means you come down I-75. You may want to consider the dolphin program we offer in the Florida Panhandle, the swim with dolphins Panama City Beach program. This program includes the dolphin program and dolphin, sea lion, and marine park shows, our best value in Florida. It may on your way down or back home to the Mid-West.
