How do you interact with the Dolphins?

Guests first disinfect their hands and are given fish by the Dolphin Care Team. They then wade into the water to about knee depth. The dolphins swim up to the guests and take the fish from their hands. Swimming with or touching the dolphins is not allowed as we try to minimise stress on the dolphins and to keep the animals as wild as possible.
