Much More Than Swimming With DolphinsFlag review
When you reach mile marker 59 on Grassy Key look for the giant dolphin and you've found the non-profit Dolphin Research Center. The key to a fun visit with kids is to book an activity ahead of time. There is something for every budget including t-shirt painting (the dolphins do the painting) or more expensive interactions in the water with the dolphins. It's not very exciting for kids if they don't have an activity planned. The grounds are beautiful and there are other animals like sea lions and tree iguanas hanging out too. It's relaxing here and everything is out in the open - there is no behind-the-scenes so you see it all which sometimes feels like an animal hospital in a good way.
