Get an up-close and personal look at our Atlantic bottlenose dolphins from two different locations in this 400,000-gallon, 12 foot-deep saltwater pool.
At our top-level, witness the airborne acrobatics from Shadow, Liko, Merlin, and Schooner during our DOLPHINS! presentation. Below, in the Underwater Observation Area, enjoy a tranquil view of these marine mammals from a 70-foot acrylic window.
All of our dolphins were born in a protective environment and are unable to be released into the wild. Learn how we go the extra mile every day to give these dolphins the best possible care. Dive into the details of our enrichment program, where we use the environment and Environmental Enrichment Devices (EEDs), many custom-designed by our Dolphin Bay trainers, to encourage the dolphin’s natural behaviors and improve their social, cognitive, and psychological well-being.
These dolphins are amazing ambassadors to their cousins in the wild, helping us raise awareness of the threats faced by marine mammals in the Gulf of Mexico and beyond. In Dolphin Bay, you can learn how fishing line entanglement, pollution, disease, and other harmful human activity endangers dolphins, and what we all can do to help them survive.
