Ultimate Swim with the Dolphin

Enjoy a VIP experience in the Florida Keys during Theater of the Sea’s Ultimate Swim with the Dolphin 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 choose to interact with a dolphin while standing in 3 to 4 feet of water and requesting behaviors such as cradles and kisses. You also have the option of combining both deep and shallow water behaviors into one program. This option offers the perfect opportunity for swimmers, non-swimmers, and participants of all ages to share an unforgettable experience in the water together.
