    You can view and feed the dolphins at SW but, DC is the place to go if you want to swim with them.

    DC is an all day experience with the actual time spent in the water with the dolphins being about 40 minutes. This doesn't sound like much but, you'll never forget being pulled through the water by one of these friendly creatures. You get to do some interactions with your chosen dolphin such as waves, asking it to jump, show you it's belly etc. You are usually put into a group of around 8 people and given a time to be at one of the cabanas for a chat with a trainer before getting into the water. Photos will be taken on the day too....the dolphin kiss is always a favourite. You don't have to buy the photos (which come in singles or packages) but most people do as it is a treasured memory.

    There are lots of other activities at DC such as swimming in the lazy river, snorkeling with thousands of tropical fish and wading with rays.

    if you go on the DC website there is a calender that lets you know the free days, if you get the ultimate swim it gives you tix to aquatica, sea world and busch gardens i think

    :p015: yep....with options of 7 or 14 days.
    About a month ago, I tried to book DC for our trip in December....I had about three days where we could go.....they were fully booked.
    So, Eeyoreguy, the sooner the better to book for DC if you're going at a busy time of the year.

    It's BRILLIANT. I'd definatley reccomend it. We did it on my sisters 16th birthday and got her the birthday package.. a dolphin swam upto her with a buoy and a special message.
    Magical.
