Theater of the Sea is a family-owned business founded in 1946 by the McKenney family. The center is one of the oldest marine mammal facilities in the world. Their mission is to provide a wonderful home for marine animals, while sharing their love for these animals with visitors and raising awareness of environmental issues and conservation. The property is surrounded by 17 acres of lagoons and tropical gardens that feature a variety of animals including dolphins, sea lions, sea turtles, sharks, rays, crocodiles and all kinds of fish and birds.
At Theater of the Sea, you can enjoy a variety of interactive programs with the animals, including a guided tour of the marine life exhibition, a boat trip through a natural water lagoon, dolphin shows, sea lions and parrots. Swim with sea lions, rays and sharks and a meeting with sea turtles.
A must-try: enjoy a 30-minute swim with the dolphins to get up close and personal with them and learn about their behavior. The dolphins might also give you hugs and let you dive with them!
