This tour allows guest to quickly understand what makes these clever characters some of the parks’ most popular animals. While on the tour guest are able to see how Seaworld not only cares for their dolphins, but guest also participate in a training session; yes you get to give the signals for these amazing animals to perform various behaviors, and you are even able to touch and pet a dolphin.

Your 45-minute tour starts in the dolphin nursery. While at the Dolphin Nursery you will earn lots of fun facts about these loveable animals, as well as ask questions about these fun loving animals, and last get to see how the trainers train the newborn dolphins born at Seaworld.

Your next stop is Dolphin Cove where your tour group will split into smaller size groups. You will be assigned an animal caretaker and here you will learn the hand signals for the different dolphin behaviors.
