Here, it’s possible to feed and touch the beautiful bottlenose dolphins.
Dolphin Cove is themed in the Key West style and offers the guests both an underwater viewing and an up close and personal experience of these wonderful creatures.
Guests usually start at the lagoon, getting close to the waters edge you can lean against the wall and stroke the dolphins as they swim past. Meanwhile staff members are on hand to explain the lifestyles of the dolphins.
Your best chance of interacting with these creatures is to buy some fish. You can purchase small cones of fish currently $4 from a kiosk next to the lagoon. Feeding is strictly controlled, the feeding station is only open at designated times and will only sell enough fish to fulfil the dolphins dietary requirements.
If you are a Seaworld Annual Pass holder show your pass and save a $1 on each cone of fish.
If your priority is to feed and interact with the dolphins then I would suggest that you take note of the next feeding time, (this will be posted at the feeding station) and return before that time. Dispatch one person to line up to purchase the fish whilst the rest of you grab a spot towards the center of the lagoon.
Seaworld no longer allow unlimited amout of people at the waters egde. You are now only allowed at the dolphin cove if you pay $7pp (I could be wrong) You will be given a try of fish, led to the cove by an instructor and be given instructions on how best to feed the dolphins safely. This is very popular and numbers are limited.
Whilst you are feeding and stroking the dolphins you will undoubtedly have your photo’s taken by one of the staff photographers. So don’t be surprised when you receive a tap on the shoulder from a member of staff offering you a ticket to view your photo.
When you exit the cove at the far end there is a path which leads to the underwater viewing area, many people seem to miss this and as such usually isn’t that crowded.
