If you ever dreamed of frolicking with Flipper, here's your (photo) opportunity, as the organizers of this global business promise a "touching experience." The well-maintained facility, certified by the Alliance of Marine Mammal Parks and Aquariums, offers three main options, essentially depending on time spent splashing in the enormous pool with the dolphins and stingrays. They range in price from $99 to $169 (kids receive a discount but must swim with an adult). The
premium is the Royal Swim, which includes a dorsal tow and foot push, showcasing the amazing stength, speed, and agility of these majestic marine mammals. Other options offer a handshake, kiss, even a belly ride. All participants receive free entrance to their choice of Stingray City or the Turtle Farm across the street, taking some of the sting out of the high prices.
