Dolphin Encounter

In this exhilarating poolside animal interaction, you’ll go backstage inside our dolphin theater to meet, touch and feed one of our incredible dolphins. Spend some time with one or more of the delightfully charismatic dolphins in our care, and you’ll quickly understand what makes these marine mammals some of Georgia Aquarium’s most popular animals. During this dolphin experience, you’ll see many of the ways we care for our dolphins, participate in a training session and touch a dolphin during this hands-on poolside encounter. As you make the acquaintance of your new dolphin friends, you’ll even learn a few important things about these extraordinary animals.
