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.

Ages 5 and up only. Children 5 - 9 years old must be accompanied by a participating adult over the age of 18 with a separate encounter ticket. Children under 10 will not be allowed to participate on their own.

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