Theater of the Sea (Dolphin Swim)

Take some time and visit the 2nd oldest marine facility in the world located right in the middle of Islamorada. This quaint 17-acre marine animal park has beautiful grounds full of native plants and marine life as well as shows and even a sandy beach and lagoon for cooling off. The highlight of the park is their "swim with" programs involving dolphins, sea lions and sting rays. Their programs are fun and an excellent way to learn about these beautiful creatures. Most of the interaction takes place in 10-15 feet of water in a natural salt water lagoon. During the dolphin swim, after a 20 minute orientation, you will get to spend 20-30 minutes interacting with them in the water, if you opt for the sea lion encounter, the duration will be the same and, you will get to work with them as they run through their trained behavior. The stingray program has a 10 minute orientation and 30 minutes of water time where, as you snorkel with them, you can feel and touch these docile creatures as well as enjoy the myriad tropical fish that are swimming around. Other programs offered include wading & interacting with the dolphins and sea lions while standing in 3-4 feet of water, which is perfect for non-swimmer and for a slightly lower cost than the swim, or opt for a 20-minute out of the water interaction for only half the price of the swim. All programs require advance reservations to participate.
