  • Today our three young children participated in the dockside program at Dolphins Plus Bayside. It was nothing short of INCREDIBLE. Everyone working there is friendly and professional. We had Kim...

  • My family and I were visiting Key largo during summer break and we booked this place online in advance; seems like they get full quickly. -When you arrive, check in by the gift shop and expect to sit and listen to an educational session about the dolphins anatomy and safety precautions, and Q&A. Approx 15-20min. -Our trainer, named (G) was very professional and friendly. She instructed us step by step of what to do and not to do. She was patient and friendly with us. -The place was clean and very organized. Also online they offered a picture package that you can buy in advance, you can also buy it after. Since you’ll be in water with the dolphins, you can’t take your own pictures. But they have someone that is taking pictures during your interaction with the dolphin and they will email it within 72 hours. It’s been 48 hours we haven’t received ours yet, So I’ll update this review regarding the status of those pictures. Overall my family had a blast and it was truly a great experience!! -We did the shallow water interaction. Next time we will try the swimming with the dolphins in the deeper water when my son is comfortable enough to swim. For sure will be back again. It’s memories that will live on. - FYI if you live in Florida you can check their websites for 10% discounts for Florida residence. -Press thumb up if this review are helpful.
  • Shantell and Kim were fantastic. Our family had the best time with the dolphins. The tour of the vet office and kitchen was interesting and informative. It has been owned by the same family since the 70s and you can tell by the pride they take in the operation. Finally, they keep their passion alive by a robust intern program. The interns were excellent!!
