The wonders of the ocean are always on display at Marineland and starting this summer the park has added many new programs to demonstrate how truly incredible sea life is. With their new Swim Adventure and Dolphin Encounter programs, guests will be able to get up close with the park’s dolphins and interact with them in many different ways. With admission to either of these programs, a Behind the Seas Walking Tour is also included, which will pull back the curtain and show guests the park’s history, live feedings, and many other different types of ocean wildlife.
