Amazing Sea Adventures - Dolphin Discoveries

03/18/2017 – 09/08/2017 Open – Close

Dolphin Discoveries Sea Adventures offer unparalleled opportunities to experience the sights and sounds of our marine environment and its inhabitants. Each dolphin watching tour offers close-up observations, and when resources allow, we will be using a research-quality hydrophone (an underwater microphone) to listen for dolphins and whales. Specially trained Aquarium educators provide discussions about incredible natural dolphin behaviors, and share what is being done to conserve and protect the species and its habitat. Brown pelicans, bald eagles, and other seabirds are frequently sighted, along with sea turtles.

In keeping with our conservation-based mission, this Sea Adventure adheres to all responsible wildlife viewing guidelines, which ensure our trips do not disturb the animals.
