Make the most of your experience at the Miami Seaquarium with a 30-minute encounter in a pool with a dolphin!

Enjoy the many shows and aquariums on offer at the Miami Seaquarium. You will get the chance to see manatees, killer whales, alligators and even some small sharks.

Then, go and meet the dolphins! Your experience will begin with a short information session, during which you will learn more about these endearing mammals and how to approach them safely. 

You will then enter a shallow pool and meet a dolphin up close. The dolphin will play around you for around 30 minutes. You can hold his flipper, give him a kiss and even try some signals which the dolphin will answer with certain actions!


When booking, you can choose between meeting the dolphin or watching the encounter between the dolphin and a loved one. Please note: children between 5 and 9 years must be accompanied by an adult who is also participating in the activity.
If you choose to be an observer, your ticket will be a standard ticket for admission to the park.

  • L’activité était très sympa. J’ai apprécié le fait qu’ils fournissent les serviettes et les combinaisons. Cependant, j’ai trouvé que l’attente était un peu longue pr rapport à l’heure prévue.
