One of the state's first marine mammal oceanariums, Marineland Dolphin Adventure offers close encounters with dolphins. Visit the side pools to pet dolphins or to swim with the gentle residents. Consider a behind-the-scenes tour of the dolphin habitats, and meet the dedicated staff who care for them. If you'd like to add kayaking to your dolphin visit, take the eco-excursion tour. Reserve your preferred dates and tours online. When you're booking, remember you'll have to arrive a half hour early to meet with your guide and go over safety protocol.

Marineland Dolphin Adventure reviews
My husband and I had an adventure at Marineland, a dolphin adventure that is! So many memories, so much Florida history at this park as it has evolved over the years. Did you know that it started as..... more »

We only had a general admission ticket. No extra experience tickets. Pros: 1) dolphin presentation was fun and informative 2) staff was very present and friendly. Very smart and willing to answer any and all questions. 3) walking tour was very informative 4) pretty cliff walk Cons: 1) way over priced - saw the whole place in like, 10 minutes and then had to wait around for an hour to see the dolphin show that was only 5-10 minutes long. 2) the "aquarium" felt like an afterthought - you have to follow the instructor (so, no breaking off and doing your own thing), its literally located in the basement, half the tour is looking at pictures on the wall of a very narrow, creepy, hot basement and, again, was only like a 10 minute tour 3) the sharks were not there because they had to be moved to another facility for their safety from hurricane Dorian. Understandable. However, we found this out after already paying for a ticket....they should have said something about it on their website because, the shark feeding would have been the other half of this "aquarium". Overall, it's a bit outdated and not worth the price of a general admission ticket. However, it might be worth it if all you wanted to do was swim/play with dolphins.
This is a great place to go for their dolphin activities! It was also great of them to have some fantastic deals for Teacher's Appreciation Day! Playing with the dolphins up close was a blast. But that said, if you want any pictures to remember it by, try and have someone else on the sidelines taking them for you. Marineland staff take some great ones, but then they hold them behind a ridiculously steep and expensive pay wall, and it costs almost as much to get the pictures as it did to buy your ticket in the first place.
