Dolphin Research Center

HomeAttractionsDolphin Research Center

In a world where it is easy to be cruel and uncaring, we at RentTheKeys prefer to be kind and watchful of those who can’t watch out for themselves, which is why the Dolphin Research Center is one of our favorite places to recommend for vacation activities! Teaching the world how humans and dolphins can live together easily, even as many species of dolphins are rapidly becoming endangered due to human contact, this worthy establishment has dedicated itself to the mission of “coexistence, cooperation, and communication” between the mammals and humans. Add the Dolphin Research Center to your vacation itinerary and be prepared to be wowed by the beauty and charm of the wonderful mammals that make their home there.

Offering a variety of programs that will help visitors enjoy a greater understanding of the friendly creatures, guests may want to plan more than one visit to ensure they can enjoy it all! Dolphin Encounters, Family Dolphin Splash, Paint with a Dolphin, even their Ultimate Trainer for the Day programs will excite the imaginations of everyone participating and can be booked online in advance. Encourage your children to take part in their Dolphin Camp or Dolphin Lab, and because dolphins are sure to be your newest obsession, sign up for a membership, bringing you even closer to our slippery and friendly “brethren” of the sea. For those who just want to check it out, General Admission includes a variety of educational opportunities that are entertaining as well, and because this institute is home to sea lions and a chattering aviary filled with colorful birds, your educational opportunities will be expanded. Summer visitors will appreciate the Sprayground, which lets your kids cool down to the accompaniment of recordings of dolphins, whales, and manatee sounds, while Anchor’s Café will ward off any hunger pangs, providing food, drinks, and frozen treats that will sweeten your visit even more! For those who visit during Memorial Day, Veteran’s Day, or just want to acknowledge those who sacrifices have given us our freedoms, the Veterans Garden offers a serene and peaceful spot to do just that.
