Welcome - our dolphin and sea lion family love to meet new friends!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: In line with Dolphin Research Center's mission, our dolphin and sea lion families are our primary concern. Therefore, on any given day, program times may vary based on the needs of the animals.

To ensure the maximum enjoyment for all, only animals that choose to be involved will participate in our in-water and dock programs.

For animal safety reasons, we ask that you do not bring/use selfie sticks within the facility.
