Visitors to St. Augustine’s popular Marineland might be surprised to learn that this favorite family attraction has been in operation since 1938! In its early days, Marineland was a movie studio but has morphed into a wonderful marine education center. Guests of all ages go nuts for the resident sea life: 12 friendly bottlenose dolphins. Although these playful mammals no longer perform in shows, visitors can enjoy a variety of interactive experiences. Guests can opt for the popular Immersion program or the in-depth Trainer for a Day program, as well as Discover Dolphins, which allows kids to splash in the shallows with their new dolphin friends. Art lovers will also get a kick out of the Dolphin Designs program, which allows visitors to take home some custom dolphin art. Meanwhile, the Touch and Feed program is great for those who don’t feel comfortable getting in the water but still want to enjoy a dolphin experience. Longer term visitors can also get in on Marineland’s fantastic day camps, featuring a variety of science-based activities and beachy fun. The attraction’s “Behind the Seas” tour is also a great way for families to enjoy quality time while getting Marineland's inside scoop.
