Dolphin Encounter

Touch and feed a bottlenose dolphin! Mississippi Aquarium's dolphin encounter gives participants the opportunity to get up close to our incredible state's water mammal! The program includes a 10-minute educational lesson, 5 minutes with a dolphin and trainer, and a Q&A session after the interaction. Participants should expect to be in small groups during this poolside encounter and must be comfortable kneeling near open water.

We ask any participants with special needs please contact us at in advance so that we may ensure the best experience possible.
