Where to Swim with Dolphins in Florida (And See Manatees)
In honor of the movie Dolphin Tale making a huge splash on the big screen, I’m re-sharing a link to an article I wrote several years ago but is still relevant, “Where to Swim with Dolphins in Florida.” I’m guessing folks who see the movie will want to swim with a dolphin during their Florida vacation. Heck, I live here and I can’t wait to do it again!
When my sister visited three years ago, I took her to the Dolphin Research Center on Grassy Key (Florida Keys) for the opportunity. She loved it! Below is the video we recorded about the experience. I’ve had the good fortune of swimming with a dolphin at Discovery Cove and it’s something everyone needs to do.
I know I owe my other sister a swim with the dolphins experience, she just needs to get herself down to the Sunshine State.
And speaking of sea mammals, seeing a manatee while vacationing in Florida is pretty groovy, too. I’ve rounded up five spots to see the sea cows in this article, “Where to See Manatees in Florida’s West Coast.”
