What You Can Expect
At Marineland, a dolphin center and marine park, you have two options to interact with those lovable creatures of the sea – bottlenose dolphins. Looking for an experience that doesn’t require a swimsuit? Opt for the Dolphin Experience, a brief meet-and-feed where you’ll pet, feed and interact with these friendly creatures. If you do want to get wet, choose the Swim with Dolphins option, a 30-minute swim that includes a 30-minute educational presentation before you get in the water.
After you depart Marineland, you head to downtown St Augustine, where the rest of your afternoon can be enjoyed at your leisure. Visit the famous Castillo de San Marcos (the oldest fort in the United States) or wander the dozens of cobblestone streets. As the oldest European-settled town in the continental United States, St Augustine dates back to 1565 and offers a wealth of cultural and historic sites around every corner.
Be prepared to explore an old seaside city in the afternoon, with the morning spent with the dolphins.
The Dolphin Experience was a wonderful experience, that I enjoyed as much if not more than the children !! A great atmosphere with friendly and helpful staff. I definitely recommend the Dolphin Experience. The visit to St Augustine was also very pleasant and enjoyable. A priceless day !! :)
