Dolphin Research Center

Enjoy a fun-filled vacation day and expand your knowledge about dolphins and sea lions at our all-natural, outdoor setting. About every half an hour, we spotlight different social groups of dolphins and sea lions in narrated behavior sessions with lots of activity and a wide-range of topics. Learn dolphin fun facts, observe research studies in progress, see how the dolphins practice behaviors or engage in playtime, and much more! Staff and volunteers are eager to answer your questions and help you gain even more knowledge about the amazing animals.  General admission is good for all day and includes access to the Sprayground. You can also sign up for one of our great interactive programs and enjoy a closer, hands-on experience.
