Dolphin behavior is fascinating.

Communicating and playing with our friendly and lovable dolphins will leave a lasting impression on your heart.
Take a Dolphin Ride
There’s nothing in the world like swimming with dolphins. These playful yet majestic marine mammals inspire childlike wonder in people of all ages. When you swim with a dolphin, you’ll experience a buzz of excitement unlike any other as you dance, play, and laugh with one of these lovable creatures before taking a lightning-fast dorsal ride across the water.
Caring for Our Dolphins
Our experience caring for these special mammals has taught us that dolphins need downtime as much as we do. The ethical treatment of our beloved dolphins is a top priority. That’s why we limit the duration of our Dolphin Signature Swim and other programs.
We make sure that our Pacific Bottlenose family spends no more than two hours each day interacting with visitors, and we give them plenty of time to play and interact with one another in the stimulating environment we have created for them.
Their days also include time in training, which is an important part of their enrichment. Health is another element of happiness, so all of the animals in our care are given regular checkups and enjoy a carefully monitored diet.
We pride ourselves on the ethical treatment of our dolphins. To learn more about how we care for our dolphins and sea lions, please take a look at the Humane Conservation program in which Dolphin Adventure is proudly certified.
