Have a question about your Dolphin Tour? We've probably answered it here!
No. This tour does not go behind the scenes, but does include access to staff-only areas.
A paid parent or guardian must accompany all participants under the age of 16. Minors 16 years of age or older may participate with a signed waiver from a parent or guardian. Parents or guardians accompanying children must be at least 18 years old. For example, a 17-year-old may attend a tour with a signed waiver, but their 10-year-old sibling may not accompany them without an adult.
This tour does not allow guests to touch the dolphins.
Closed-toe, non-slip shoes and comfortable clothing are recommended. Keep in mind that you'll be directly in front of the dolphin's pool, and may get splashed.
No. However, this tour is an add-on to a general admission ticket, which grants you admission into the building.
