Dolphin Research Center

An amazing educational, not-for-profit facility that promotes peaceful coexistence with these very intelligent mammals. It is also a rehabilitation center for dolphins and a manatee rescue center. It is a great experience to spend an hour there or all day watching the presentations and demonstrations as well as being able to swim and interact with the dolphins and sea lions. There is a trainer for a day program where you will learn about training techniques and how to communicate with the dolphins or choose the researcher for a day program where you will see how they are studying to communicate with the dolphins which includes some fun time with a dolphin dip. For those that want a shorter experience, opt for a dolphin encounter, a dolphin dip, play with the dolphins, paint with a dolphin or meet the dolphins. Most programs incorporate at least 20-25 minutes of water time and a full day's admission. There are also programs for interacting with the sea lions. Tip: Even if you don't swim with the dolphins you get an up close and personal look at everything going on. Note: Most programs where you swim with the dolphins need to be pre-booked online.
