Discover Dolphins Encounter at Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park

Discover Dolphins Encounter at Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park

Guests cannot help but be enchanted when meeting a dolphin family during this hands-on dockside encounter. Play, laugh,...
The kids really liked the encounter with the dolphins
It was very nice to have a chance to touch and feed a dolphin, but it was very, very short, only 5 minutes. If you are a family of 4 that makes $140 plus fees and taxes, so over $150 altogether. And extra for the photos that the Gulfarium employees take. My advice: pay for the kids, wait outside the fence and take your own pictures.
It was awesome just wish for 39 dollars you had more then 5 mins with them.. all the trainers were very friendly and knowledgeable

I loved the interaction as well as the friendly and knowledgeable staff.
Out of the encounters I did, this one was by my far my favorite! Milo was just the cutest and seemed so happy to be with us. We learned a lot about him and how to care for our environment to make sure the wild animals are safe and can live long life like him. I would 10/10 recommend this encounter.
This was an unreal experience! Seals are such beautiful and smart animals, and I’m so glad I got to meet Milo and his son Ollie. The trainers showed off how intelligent these animals were by showing us basic tricks. Most of these tricks are learned as ways to make it easier for the trainers to care for them whether it’s brushing their teeth or having them get into specific positions to check their health. This was such a memorable experience, and I’m so grateful I was able do it.

My little girl had the bestest time ever it’s all she could talk about the rest of our trip we couldn’t be happier the staff was so nice and informative they even let her feed them even with her little hand. It was soectacular
This was so much fun! The staff was very informative of the penguins and I learned a lot of facts about the species. Of course the penguin, 'Toto' was so cute and funny, we were able to feed, pet and take photos with him so that was also a nice touch!

Had a great time at Gulfarium seeing the Dolphin & Sea Lion shows! My children and I really enjoyed getting to interact with the sea lions & learn more about them.
This was so much fun! Ada the sea lion was so funny and adorable. We were able to get up close and personal to see all her tricks and dances, it was very entertaining! The staff was great and let us feed her and take some fun photos. This was one of the highlights of my gulfarium trip!

Did you know that sea turtles have a better sense of smell than sharks? This turtle-filled encounter for ages 5 and up...
My daughter (16), my son (5) and myself all enjoyed this encounter. I really liked how educational it was, it was not just about the interaction with the animal but also a teaching moment. We definitely recommend it!
Bad weather so not as fun as I expected
The first 2/3rds of the encounter was honestly pretty disappointing... basically just standing there & having the guide talk about the sea turtles and other turtles... but nothing special (not hands-on). The last 1/3rd (with the tortoises) was great, though... got to spend lots of time in the exhibit with the turtles & touch them & play with them. The final 1/3 largely made up for the sub-par first 2/3 of it.
