Join us for an exclusive teaching and play session with our dolphins! Our expert dolphin staff will demonstrate how we work and play with our dolphins, plus share the distinctive features that help us tell our dolphins apart.

Just like a person’s fingerprint, each dolphin has a unique fluke, or tail. Take a front row seat as we show you—start to finish—how we teach our dolphins to create fluke prints. It’s art class for our dolphins, and you get an exclusive behind-the-scenes look!

You’ll even get to take home your own copy of a fluke print made by one of our Atlantic bottlenose dolphins—a fin-tastic, one-of-a-kind souvenir!




After the session, there will be plenty of time to get your questions answered by our experts and to explore our hands-on Dolphin Discovery cart. Following the program, you’re free to explore the rest of the Aquarium.
