These are the types of things which are so unique to the Florida Keys. Only sea world does it better, but the setting here makes this more special. Like everything in Islamorada, Key Largo, or Key West, you should pick a nice weather day to go. Since you are both inside and outside, select a time with the sun out, and not too hot.
They offer a way to interact with a real dolphin at scheduled times during the day. You stand in water about three feet and get to be up close with the adorable dolphins. A bit pricey, the only issue. An add on to consider.
It is a bit hot in the middle of the day in the summer, unless you are going in the water for an extra charge.
Staff members do a great job of bringing the Florida Keys Wildlife to life for all to see up close. The dolphins used here at the Florida Keys Bottlenose and the Sea Lions come from California. The salt water lagoon is where you jump in to Swim with the Dolphins. Wear something swim-able, as they have a nice lagoon beach area here open for swimming. Every child will want to meet a Sea Lion and an Upper Keys Dolphin.
