Do you have any in-the-water experiences with dolphins?
While we do not have a "swim with the dolphins" program, we do offer our guests the chance to
share the water with our animals through our Wade with Dolphins experience. During this program,
you get the chance to go onto our shallow underwater platform with a mask and snorkel and interact
with our dolphins. For more information on the Wade with Dolphins program,
Do I get to choose which dolphin I interact with?
Just like us, dolphins need some downtime and to ensure the health and comfort of our animals,
we may need to make last-minute changes in their daily schedules. For that reason, we cannot
guarantee that your dolphin experience will be with one specific dolphin.
What types of dolphins do you have at Clearwater Marine Aquarium?
All four dolphins at CMA are bottlenose dolphins. Their names are Hope, Nicholas, Panama, and Winter.
To learn more about their individual stories,
Which dolphin does Winter live with?
Winter lives in a tank with Panama. Panama acted as Winter's adopted mom when Winter was a calf.
