Make your time with dolphins matter
We are not a theme park, and our dolphins don’t do shows. We are a different kind of facility, and our programs are educational and intimate.
By contributing to IDC, you become part of an organization that has an ethical purpose and are a participant responsible for actively changing lives.
To schedule any of the experiences below,
please call 305-451-5884.
Each interaction includes the tour
(once in the morning and afternoon)
All programs are based on availability
From The Lift
$120 per person
(Guests will be lowered to knee-deep water.)
From The Dock
$70 per person
(Guests will not get wet.)
All of our interactions are educational and fun and consist of:
- Learning how we care for our dolphin family
- Understanding how they help others and are incorporated into therapy programs
- Learning about their anatomy and the different personalities of each of our dolphins
- Watch and learn about training methodology
The interactions may include:
- Getting a kiss
- Feeding the dolphins
- Learning about behavior management
- Participating in medical assessments
- Asking animal care staff questions while on the dock/platform
Each program will provide different interactions.
Photo packages available!
Float in the lagoon on your very own raft while the dolphins swim around. They can be very curious and want to learn about you. Whatever they choose to do is up to them!
Cost $100 per person
(Minimum 4 people. Private sessions available.)
Dolphins are not told what to do—the interaction is on their terms!
It’s always different and fun to see what they do.
Maybe they will push the raft, come up to you for rubs or kisses—whatever it is, it is always fun and interesting!
