• Dip 'N Discover Dolphins at Dolphin Cay

The Dip 'N Discover At Dolphin Cay

An inspirational opportunity for guests to engage and learn about bottlenose dolphins. Sitting in waist-high water in the dolphins’ environment, you will have the chance to develop a once-in-a-lifetime, personal connection, face-to-face. The sounds you will hear are called vocalizations. The excitement in the swims and jumps are natural behaviors like playing. Dolphin Cay is a world renowned dolphin and sea lion habitat that opened in 2007 in time to provide a safe haven for 17 stranded dolphins and 10 sea lions whose home was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina.
