For an unforgettable experience swimming with dolphins, families can visit Dolphin Island Park where they will be able to interact with these magnificent creatures firsthand in a safe and friendly environment. Located about a half a mile from the coast, this park is a natural habitat for dolphins and sea lions that call this part of the world their home. There are several experiences to choose from at the park, but travelers with kids will most likely want to choose the Dolphin Family Experience that is designed to be enjoyed by people of all ages. Not only will visitors who pick this program get a chance to watch these mammals perform tricks for their delight, but they will also be given 20 minutes to swim with a dolphin up close. Children will love giving dolphin handshakes, or watching these intelligent creatures clap, wave goodbye and perform a variety of other stunts. There are other programs to choose from as well, such as the Dolphin Action Program that includes an opportunity to snorkel with sharks and stingrays. The most exciting program is the Dolphin Royal Swim that gives tourists the chance to take a dolphin belly ride or experience a foot push, which involves having two dolphins lift them above the surface of the water by pushing the bottom of their feet. Dolphin Island Park is fun for all ages, so every member of the family can enjoy themselves while visiting this attraction.
