Suzi asked: dolphin discovery
Q: my daughter wants to participate in the dolphin discovery... my question is, do they do the dorsal pull as well, or just swim in the water with the dolphin?
Hi Suzi, Our Discovery program involves time in the water standing on a submerged platform as well as time out in the deeper water swimming with the dolphins. In order to ensure that our guests have as much hands-on time with the dolphins, as well as for safety reasons, our programs do not include a dorsal tow. Feel free to give us a call with any further questions. We look forward to seeing you here!
