If you'd rather swim with the dolphins than just watch their antics, head to Dolphin Quest. The dolphin center specializes in various dolphin encounter programs, including Dolphin Family and Friends, Trainer For a Day, and even Trainer for a Week. The trainers will teach you a bit about the intelligent animals while you hang out in the pool with them. Watch the dolphins perform their best tricks, touch them, feed them, and take pictures with them. When they take off swimming, see if you can keep up to these speedy creatures. You'll want to invest in a photo of you and your new dolphin friend at the end. Dolphin Quest is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , custom trip planner Edition.
