Ultimate Swim – Wade with the Dolphin

Enjoy an exclusive experience in the Florida Keys during Theater of the Sea’s ultimate dolphin interaction program. You and your family can enjoy touching and interacting with a dolphin while swimming and snorkeling around our natural lagoon and doing behaviors such as dorsal tows, hugs and foot pushes or interact with a dolphin while standing in 3 to 4 feet of water and requesting behaviors such as cradles and kisses. This private experience offers a perfect opportunity for swimmers and non-swimmers to interact with a dolphin together while still joining them in the water.
