Families who have always dreamed of swimming with dolphins and experiencing these animals up close should visit the Dolphin Explorer Wildlife Park. Along with providing opportunities for travelers to enjoy these beautiful creatures, the mission of the park is to educate visitors about the importance of protecting these wonderful marine mammals, and there are many educational resources available to tourists who are interested. There are a number of programs to choose from when visiting the park, and each offers a unique experience as well as a chance to learn more about sea animals like dolphins and sea lions. Less experienced swimmers can choose the Funtastic program which does not require much swimming skills and still gives people the chance to interact with dolphins. Thrill seekers will want to go with the Extreme program which involves swimming with dolphins as well as snorkeling with sharks and sting rays. Other programs will give visitors the opportunity to ride dolphins or have them jump over right over their heads, so groups will want to choose the experience that is right for them before purchasing tickets. Family members who do not care to swim with dolphins but still want to come along for the fun can purchase a general admissions pass that includes a bird show and sea lions show, which means there is something for everyone at Dolphin Explorer Wildlife Park.
