What You Can Expect

2-Day Miami South Beach Adventure from Orlando with Optional Dolphin Swim

Dolphin Swim

Day 1: Orlando -- Miami
After pickup from a select meeting point in Orlando, take a 4-hour drive to South Beach in Miami. Your first stop is the Florida Everglades, where you'll enjoy an exhilarating airboat ride through the lush wetlands with your guide. Your airboat ride is followed by a wild snake- and alligator-handling show, during which expert reptile handlers will offer interesting information about these creatures.

Next stop is Bayside Marketplace, a shopping complex where you'll have free time to peruse the numerous specialty and name-brand stores. This complex is also home to a variety of restaurants, live entertainment and sightseeing tour options, and offers breathtaking views of the Miami skyline.

You’ll then be taken to your hotel, located in the heart of South Beach's Art Deco District. It’s just seconds away from restaurants, shops, museums, nightclubs and the beach, so you'll always have something to do. The rest of the day and night is yours to spend as you please.

Overnight: Catalina Hotel and Beach Club or similar in South Beach

Day 2: Miami -- Orlando
On your second day, take a tour of the Art Deco District, dine at the Miami Beach Marina, visit the famous Lincoln Road outdoor mall, stroll along Ocean Drive, or take a dip in Nikki Beach (all activities at own expense). Your tour will depart from Miami around 3pm for arrival in Orlando at approximately 7pm.

Dolphin Swim Upgrade: For something new and exciting, upgrade to include a Dolphin Swim! Check out of your hotel early in the morning and head to Key Largo with your guide. You'll receive an informative briefing about dolphins by a marine expert before hopping in the water to rub the dolphins' bellies, do handshakes and other tricks, and even receive a dolphin kiss. After your 1.5-hour dolphin experience, you'll be taken back to South Beach for a few hours of free time before heading back to Orlando. Dolphin swim participants are required to pay a $24 fee on the morning of departure to the tour operator.

A wonderful two days! The hotel was different to the one mentioned on the site but was beautiful!
The driver was a really lovely and chatty lady who gave us all a map and a info sheet on Miami.
I did expect that this would be a coach trip rather than a mini bus but there were stops for snacks and the loo both ways.
Would def do this again next time I go to Florida!

We had a great time on this trip and would recommend it to anyone who wants to see more of the area around Orlando, but does not want to drive. The pick-ups were punctual. Madeline, the Tour Guide and Herman, the Driver were absolutely brilliant, pointing out all interesting places along the journey.
The Dolphin swim was amazing with 2 adult dolphins and a baby swimming with 2 people, we have 164 photos to show. I would do this trip again.
