Walk up to poolside for an up-close look, or go below for an underwater view of SeaWorld's bottlenose dolphins. Check the schedule for feeding times to hear more from SeaWorld trainers about these marine mammals.

My 8 year old daughter was bit by a dolphin during this attraction. Her entire hand was in the dolphins mouth. Caught on video. She has several gashes on her hand and was emotionally traumatized. Please take a stand against unsafe exhibits at Sea World and do not attend.

Don't miss the underwater viewing area. If you really want to ensure interaction with the dolphins, you can pay to feed (and pet) them. There are scheduled times printed on the park map for each day. On a busy day, you will need to get in line 30 mins. early and it cost $7 per tray of fish. They require you to buy at least one tray for each member of your party over a certain age (5 or 6 ?). They also have private "behind-the-scenes" tours for $50-Adult, $30-Child. So feeding could still be a cheaper alternative. And you can buy or take great photos.
