Florida Keys: Dockside Dolphin Experience

1. Florida Keys: Dockside Dolphin Experience

Feed, play and interact with real-life dolphins. This program is perfect for families with young children that don’t mind getting splashed but aren’t ready to be in the water with these friendly faces. The dolphins will be ready to greet you dockside. Prior to meeting the beloved mammals, you’ll get a brief educational session on the world of dolphins, conservation, and a mini demonstration on proper hand placements for each kind of dolphin behavior. Next, feed and play with dolphins from the dry training docks. Guests will also get the opportunity to have some fun playtime interaction, which can be semi-customized to better enhance each guest or group. You’ll even have your own talented photographers capturing your experience throughout the program.

This was a great way to learn about the surrounding area while driving to Key West. We stopped at multiple places along the way because of the app and we didn’t regret a single one. Take your time and enjoy! Some of my favorite memories are because of the stops we made.

It was our first time but really that was amazing and my wife realize one of her dreams...it was to see and touch a sea mammal...just beautiful.

App worked as expected and gave a great overview of sites as we approached them. Offered good suggestions on places to stop along the way.

Great app for seeing some of the sites on the drive to Key West.
