Orlando swim with dolphin program


This program will get you face-to-face with an Atlantic Bottlenose dolphin. During your session you will learn all about these underwater mammals in an interactive workshop led by highly educated trainers.  You will then enter the saltwater lagoon and meet your dolphin pal.  You’ll be able to hug, kiss, rub, pet, and get up-close to the dolphin in this heart-warming program. If you are comfortable in deep water, you can partake in an opportunity to be whisked away by a dolphin as it carries you across the water and get to swim with the dolphins from the deep end of the lagoon to the safe shoreline. If you are not comfortable in deep water, you will have the opportunity to get a special hug or rub from the dolphins. These special behaviors are perfect for non-swimmers. After your dolphin interaction, spend the rest of the day exploring the many amenities that are offered, from unlimited food & drinks to endless swimming and relaxing at the Orlando dolphin facility.


  • A 20-minute educational classroom presentation prior to entering the water.
  • A 30-minute deep water experience including touching, playing and training with a dolphin. Swimmers and non-swimmers are in the same group during this part of the dolphin interaction.
  • For swimmers, you can swim into deeper water for the opportunity to get a dolphin dorsal fin ride across the saltwater lagoon.
  • For non-swimmers, you will have an opportunity to a special hug, hold or rub down of the dolphin.
