Congratulations on your upcoming engagement!

Whether you choose to propose during one of our shows or animal interactions, we have several memorable options for your big day.

Proposals during animal interactions

At a predetermined point in the interaction, the animal will bring a toy to the recipient of the proposal. The toy will contain a secret compartment. The recipient will be prompted by the trainer to open the compartment. Inside the recipient will find a proposal message which can be customized by you. As the recipient is reading the proposal, you will position yourself behind ready to propose. The animal can also deliver the engagement message on a buoy. You can borrow one of ours or you may choose to order a customized keepsake buoy for $35 (please give us 2 weeks notice).

Proposals during shows

You and your significant other will be picked seemingly at random during the “volunteer” portion of the show. You, your partner, and a few other volunteers will be asked to come down to the show float where everyone will take turns interacting with the dolphin. The trainers will make sure that you and your significant other go last. The animal will retrieve a toy from the lagoon and bring it to the recipient. The toy will have a secret compartment that contains the proposal message. The show trainer will prompt the recipient to open the compartment. Inside will be a customized proposal message from you. You will be ready behind the recipient with the ring as the recipient reads the message. The show trainers will make an announcement congratulating you both. The animals can also deliver the engagement message on a buoy. You can borrow one of ours or you may choose to order a customized keepsake buoy for $35 (please give us 2 weeks notice).
