If you're planning on soaking up some sun on your next visit to Florida Keys anytime soon, you surely have to visit Dolphin Connection by Dolphin Discovery. This one of a kind tourist destination is where you'll have the best chance alongside your family to be in direct contact with the most incredible dolphins in Florida while you learn about their natural environment.
Dolphin Connection in Florida, where the whole family will have a blast connecting with marine life, is the perfect place to make your swimming with dolphins dream come true alongside our Dolphin Discovery program.
If you’ve ever dreamed of entering the water and playing with dolphins, this is your chance! Stand on submerged platforms and touch, hold, and even feed our dolphins. You can even take the plunge and swim with them.
Our facilities have been specially built so our dolphins can have the best care while our visitors have the once in a lifetime opportunity to create a bond of love with this lovely species.
Dolphin Discovery provides a high quality up-close and personal experience for each guest and is limited to no more than 6 participants per dolphin. Following instructions in our outdoor classroom which overlooks our beautiful dolphin lagoon, you'll continue by entering the water to hug, splash and play with our dolphins for 25 minutes. For our guests' comfort, dolphin interaction occurs from submerged, deepwater platforms but also includes opportunities to swim into the lagoon for a timeless interaction with our dolphins.
