Adult Dolphin Trainer Workshop

March 24 • 9am-4pm • ​Cost: $300 for members, $325 for non-members

Experience what it takes to be a dolphin trainer and get to know the members of our dolphin pod. Over the course of the day, participants will learn how we train and care for our dolphins through special behind the scenes experiences in the St. Vincent​ Dolphin Pavilion including attending the dolphin presentation, and meeting the trainers, dolphins and other marine mammals. Participants will learn how to individually identify our dolphins and how scientists study dolphins in the wild. All of this leads up to the ultimate experience, venturing into the water to meet our wonderful dolphins up close and personal.

*Participants must be at least 4 feet 6 inch​es (54 inches) tall and 18 years of age to participate in this program.
