Fodor's Expert Review Dolphins Plus Oceanside
A sister property to Dolphins Plus Bayside, this Dolphins Plus offers some of the same programs, and the age requirement is lower. The cheapest option, a shallow-water program, begins with a one-hour briefing, after which you enter the water up to your waist to interact with the dolphins. You only get to see them: participants can snorkel but are not allowed to touch the dolphins. Prefer to stay mostly dry? Opt to paint with a dolphin, or get a dolphin "kiss." For tactile interaction (fin tows, for example), sign up for the structured swim program, which is more expensive.
