We arrived at 11 am and spent about an hour touring the facility and the various lagoons that are home to the many dolphins and pair of sea lions. This place is really neat because not only is it one of the most popular tourist attractions to the keys, but it is also a real research center. You can watch firsthand the trainers teaching and training and observing and learning about the dolphins.
They trained this dolphin to swim like a shark. Really cool to see it swim with its tail on the surface splashing side to side:
This dolphin could stick its tail in the air for 5 minutes!
All the dolphins are very happy and love to interact with people. In fact the dolphins have much better accomodations and food than most people in the world.
