I sure liked the pics. I had no idea Sea World offered anything like that. I am now interested in having my 6-yr old do one of them. The dolphin one. Does anyone know if they let them swim with the dolphins during that? I would like for just my son to go, but of course my husband or I could do it w/ him if they required a parent. It is our first trip to Sea World, and we're only going for a day.

What if the “Hokey Pokey” really is what it’s all about?

heather,

They do let you swim with the Dolphins during the Dolphin Interaction Program (DIP)

Participants must be at least 6 years old and at least 44" tall

They also have a new Interaction program

Wild Arctic Interaction
Immerse yourself in the Wild Arctic and interact with beluga whales, walruses, seals and even polar bears. Sea World's amazing Wild Arctic Interaction offers exclusive, behind the scenes encounters with huge polar bears, walruses and seals. You’ll then suit up and enter the 55-degree water for a once in a lifetime chance to touch, feed and interact with magnificent beluga whales.


Participants must be at least 10 years old and at least 44" tall

Hope you enjoy your visit and you should do a trip report about it.

Lucky Looks like you had fun. I wish I could have done trainer for a day at Sea World San Diego before they changed it. Now it is all dolphins. You don't get to meet the orcas or sea lions now. If you don't know what an orca is, Shamu is an orca.

You are waist deep in water with dolphins. I did Sea World San Diego's dolphin interaction program in June 2004 with my sister who was 6 years old at the time. It was fun. I was at Sea World San Diego for 2 days. You could do this program one day. When I go to Sea World San Deigo again I would like to do it again. I'm not sure when I'm going to Sea World San Deigo again. Your son could go on his own. They put the kids that do the program without their parents in a group. I got a dorsal tow from a dolphin a short distance, the length of the platform. I got to dance with a dolphin. I got to pose with a dolphin. We lifted Misty up. I also met Buster the common dolphin. I jumped and landed on my side and Buster would jump. Buster also speed swam around us. He was pretending to be a shark. Sadly, the dolphins I did the dolphin interaction program with passed away. The dolphins I did the interaction program with were Misty and Buster. I hope this helps.

Wow, that looks like an awesome day - what an experience! The closest I have come to something like this is swimming with a pod of wild dolphins in New Zealand - but boy was that cold.

Great TR - thanks for sharing.
