If you have any interest in Dolphins (porpoises) other than just watching them jump, this is your place ! Our visit the third week in November, delivered everything we wished with these sea mammals at a very nominal cost. The self directed educational part of the tour allowed time to acquire facts about them and other ocean dwellers. Later, the... More

Went with a group of 30 veterans from Wounded Warrior Project and got to swim with the dolphins and have the behind the scenes tour. It was absolutely amazing. The trainers were great and the guides were very knowledgeable. I will be bringing my daughter here over Christmas is was awesome!!!

It was to pricey for us to get in the water with the dolphins. We paid for general admission. One of the workers was kind enough to escort us to the side of a tank and answer all of our questions. I took lots of pictures. It was the highlight of my day to be that close to several dolphins.

The whole experience is nothing short of amazing. The staff are very helpful and knowledgeable and the exhibit tanks worth the time to see. But the stars are the dolphins. We worked with Zak, a Pacific bottlenose and quite the performer. His trainer had him doing all sorts of tricks and we got to work with him in shallow and... More

My Wife and I fulfilled a bucket list dream of swimming with dolphins and feeding them. What better place than Marineland in Florida! The trainers and guides there are all very professional and caring. They love Thierry jobs and the animals that they care for. We had a great time and we'll worth the journey to Florida. I would highly... More

We had an amazing time petting dolphins and watching the sharks feed. The staff is helpful and attentive and answered our many questions. I highly recommend this as a place to visit.

I know what some say...it's a cruel environment for these animals. But after my in depth, daylong stay I've come to a different conclusion. Contrary to a commonly held belief, the staff spend their days engaging the dolphins in stimulating activities. They are Not required to perform like trained dogs. In fact, they are asked (the level of communication between... More

We purchased the feed and touch and the behind the scenes tour. I'll start by saying this is not an aquarium, they care for their animals and all profits help toward that. Small children will probably get bored here. Workers are present around tanks to explain why the animals are there and give great detail. Touch and feed we were... More

Not cheap but will remember it forever. Here since 1938 they are non profit and do a great job for the animals. Having the opportunity to get up close to the Dolphins was amazing.

This is a very small location with a few large tanks (turtles, Sharks, sting rays) and the Dolphins. You're paying to help support research - don't compare it to a SeaWorld or large aquarium. It's a well taken care of site and the staff is very friendly. It was a neat experience.
