Dolphin Swim Program
The Dolphin Swim Program in Miami is for anyone who is at least 52 inches tall and a solid swimmer. You must be a good swimmer because this program takes place in deeper water and you will actually have the chance to swim and splash around with the dolphins.
Your day will start with an interactive lesson where you will discuss dolphin anatomy, physiology, intelligence and communication methods of dolphins. You’ll also learn about environmental issues dolphins face and you’ll get an overview of marine mammal training by a professional marine animal handler.
Once your interactive lessons are complete, you’ll be able to hop into the water and meet your new dolphin friends face-to-face. Atlantic Bottlenose dolphins are highly intelligent, curious and playful animals, and they LOVE making new friends. You will probably have to pinch yourself a few times to believe you are finally up-close-and personal with dolphins!
While in the water, and after you’ve had a bit of time to get acquainted with your new pals, you’ll learn how to train dolphins from one of the facility’s trainers. You’ll also get to get a lot of hugs and kisses from the dolphins.
But that isn’t even the best part…
You’ll get to experience a dorsal fin ride. If you’re not sure what this is, it’s when you hold onto the dolphin’s dorsal fin and the dolphin then pulls you around the water – fast! It’s an experience you’ll never forget.
After your swim encounter ends, you’ll have time to explore the rest of the park. Make sure to leave yourself enough time to swim with the seals. They are pretty adorable and playful as well!
Book Your Dolphin Swim
Do you have a younger child in your group or is one of the adults not a confident swimmer? If so, the Dolphin Encounter in Miami is perfect for you because it takes place in safe, shallow water. But don’t let that fool you, though the water is shallow, the fun is just as big!
In this encounter program, you will also start by learning all about dolphins, their behavior and habitat. Once the educational portion is completed, you’ll wade into the water to greet your new friends.
While you may not be able to enjoy a dorsal fin ride, you’ll still get to hug and kiss your dolphin pals. You’ll also learn how to train them and watch in amazement and they swim around you playfully.

About Dolphin Swim Miami Facility
Dolphin Swim Miami is located on beautiful Key Biscayne. If you don’t know the area, Key Biscayne is a set of islands that extend from Downtown Miami. The setting is spectacular and adds to the already incredible experience.
The facility has two goals – 1) to teach everyone about how incredibly special dolphins are and how we can help them thrive in the wild and 2) to make sure you and your group have the most enjoyable and memorable experience possible. This is why they provide a professionally-taken photo of you and your new dolphin pal at the end of the program.
The facility also provides wetsuits, towels, changing rooms with showers and free use of lockers for the day. You will, however, need to bring your own bathing suit and sense of adventure.
Miami is less than an hour away from Boca Raton, so this adventure makes the PERFECT day trip activity for you and your family.
