Enjoy the Miami Dolphin Encounter Non-Swim Program

Dolphin Encounter Miami

The Miami Dolphin Encounter non-swim program is just one of many attractions in this amazing South Florida city. Nearly three quarters of a century after the art deco movement, Miami is still one of the trendiest, chicest, sexiest cities on the planet! Maybe you’ll want to spend the day strolling one of downtown Miami’s designer districts to let your inner fashionista out; or hit one of the many nightclubs where, on most evenings, you will hear the pulsating Latin rhythms pouring out through every doorway; or maybe you’ll simply want to spread a towel on one of the many gorgeous white sand beaches and take a siesta all day long while a gentle ocean breeze sways the palm fronds above.

One of the coolest things about this city is that it still has the feel of a place that went up last night. Between the sultry air, lush tropical vegetation, and the shimmering azure waters of Biscayne Bay, the character and demeanor of this sultry, exciting city thrills visitors from all over the world three hundred and sixty-five days out of the year. And, as we mentioned a bit earlier, one of the most thrilling things to do in Miami is to enjoy a dolphin encounter at Dolphin World.

What’s So Great about the Dolphin Encounter in Miami?

Although Dolphin World offers a variety of wonderful, fun programs, the Dolphin Encounter is particularly attractive for those families or groups traveling with the very young or the very old. Because this is a non-swim program, visitors of all ages can wade in the shallow water and get up-close-and-personal and have an unforgettable experience with these majestic creatures. Once in the water, you’ll have the opportunity to feed the dolphins and play with them. You’ll even get the chance to work with one of Dolphin World’s trainers and see what it takes to train these creatures who seem far more intellectual at times than the trainers!

What does the Miami Dolphin Encounter include? You’ll start with a 15-30 minute instructional presentation, which will be followed by a shallow water non-swim with dolphins program. That’s just another way of saying you’ll have the time of your life as you touch, feed, play, hug, kiss and dance with dolphins. During the program you’ll have many personal photo opportunities with a dolphin so you may catch that Kodak moment and bring home a photo to make your neighbors jealous! One of greatest things about the Dolphin Encounter is that each encounter is so very unique and based on the guests and the dolphins.

5 Fun Facts about Sea Lions

7 different species

You’d be hard-pressed to find someone who didn’t think sea lions were pretty adorable. With their long whiskers, winged feet and funny little shuffle-walk, they are one of the most unique creatures on the planet. But there are many things people don’t know about sea lions. For instance, they’re highly intelligent. In fact the US Navy has trained sea lions to help protect the waters off the coast of California from terrorist activity. Sea lions were actually used during the Vietnam War and Operation Iraqui Freedom.
Here are 5 other fun facts about sea lions you may not know.

Bulls and Cows and Pups, Oh My!

Male sea lions are called bulls, females are called cows and their babies are called pups. Sea lions are very social creatures and live in large groups called colonies or pods. These colonies can consist of thousands of sea lions all living in relative harmony, with a few skirmishes here and there.

And the Gold Medal Goes to…

Despite how oddly-shaped they are, sea lions are actually fantastic athletes able to complete rather astounding physical feats. For instance, they can dive to depths of 800 feet in order to find food. And, although they’re air breathers, they can remain under water for up to 30 minutes and can swim at a top speed of 25 miles an hour. Look out Michael Phelps.

There are 7 Different Species

There are 7 different species of sea lion found in the waters all around the world. There is the Steller sea lion, also known as the northern sea lion and found in the North Pacific Ocean. The Steller sea lion is the largest of all the species. Next is the South American sea lion found along the west coast of South America; the Australian sea lion – which is a small species found along the south and west coasts of Australia; the California sea lion, which is considered the most intelligent of the species; the New Zealand sea lion found around the south island of New Zealand; and finally the Galapagos sea lion found only around the Galapagos islands and thought to be related to the California sea lion.

Mmm, Mmm, Good

So, what do sea lions eat? Sea lions are carnivores and primarily live on fish. Some of their favorite fish are herring, mackerel, squid and sardines. Although they do have teeth, they tend to be rather piggish and swallow their fish whole.

How do they DO That?

We’ve all seen sea lions balance a ball on their nose, but did you ever really wonder how they do that? Well, they’re kind of cheating. You see they don’t actually balance the ball on their nose, they actually balance it using their stiff whiskers – it just looks like it’s on the tip of their nose. Pretty sneaky.

Dolphins and Miami VIP Tour in One Day

cristina and lemur

My name is Cristina and I love dolphins and all kinds of animals. On my trip to tropical and warm Miami recently, I and a group of friends, received the incredible opportunity to take part in a VIP Land Animal Tour in Miami, which has lots of animals. I had heard a little bit about the tour before, but nothing could have prepared me for what I encountered that day. I can see how you can participate in Swim with Dolphins and Miami VIP Tour in One Day.

Our day started with an absolutely delicious lunch at the Lakeside Cafe, which is included in the price of the tour, where we had a white linen tablecloth and napkins, real silverware, and ceramic plates. We even had a special worker waiting on us and making sure we were satisfied in any way he could. We were definitely receiving VIP treatment! After lunch, our aiswesome tour guide, Ryan, met us in the Cafe to start our tour.

Lemur Experience: Up close and Personal

Our tour started with a bang as we entered the gift shop and made our way to the “Lemur Experience.” As we looked in the window, the lemurs were all fast asleep, awaiting our arrival to start jumping around. Ryan, our guide for the day, decided to give us a bit of information about lemurs before we went into the room. First, he told us that all Lemurs are from the island of Madagascar and that they are an extremely endangered species, there are only 300 of them left in the world! Of those 300 hundred, there are only 90 Red Lemurs in existence, and 2 of them are at Jungle Island. In fact, it is illegal to even touch a Red Lemur anywhere but Jungle Island. He also informed us that Lemur tribes have female leaders, queens, who are in charge of the group. As we entered the room, we made sure to store all of our belongings in the cabinets, as the lemurs have little hands and like to touch everything and play with them! We all received a couple of grapes, and the lemurs were released. They began by getting a feel of us and making sure we were not a threat. Then they started jumping all around the room looking for grapes, and even hopping on our heads! Our excellent photographer, Fredlin, made sure to catch the entire spectacle with his camera. Then, Ryan had the lemurs scream on command, and boy was that  loud! It was hard to say goodbye to our new lemur friends but it was time to move on to our next event: the “Winged Wonders” Show!

Winged Wonders: Fun with Birds

The “Winged Wonders” bird show has definitely got to be one of the most amazing things I have seen in my life. A variety of different birds were all trained to do awesome tricks and follow all of the instructions from their trainers. What was most surprising was how the birds never flew away from the show area, they came right back to their trainers! What made it the most special for me was that I had the chance to be a volunteer for one of the birds, the vulture. The other volunteer and I held out our arms and the vulture flew right through, and we got a feel of just how huge its wingspan is! We even got to pet its beautiful, soft feathers before we went back to our seats to enjoy the rest of the show. Then, out came the most dangerous bird in the entire world, the six-foot tall Cassowary. It is the closest living relative to the pterodactyl, and his claws can and has ripped apart several human beings! But don’t worry, we were completely safe as the trainer had everything completely under control, as usual. We watched as it swallowed a whole apple with one gulp, watching it as it slid down its throat! But the most amazing part of our bird experience was after the show, when we had a special VIP encounter with a bird that was not part of the show, the Condor. Legend has it that touching the fluffy white collar around the Condor’s neck gives you extremely good fortune, and many Royals and famous athletes visit Jungle Island just to stroke the Condor’s collar!

Kangaroos and Tortoises

Next, it was onto the Red Kangaroos. Again, we got some grapes from Ryan and entered the kangaroo exhibit to have an encounter with our hoppy new friends. They were so friendly and well-behaved, you would never think that there are several people a year who get kicked by kangaroos in Australia! We even got to hold one and smile for a special Kodak moment.

After that, we headed to the Tortoise exhibit where we met #84 and #85, as was marked in their shells. They have been in the area of Miami since 1935, and they are over 120 years old! You would never believe how strong these Tortoises were. They can be stronger than the tigers, which we could feel when they almost pulled us off of our feet as we fed them some carrots!

Next, we got a special look at the Orangutan Exhibit. The trainer of the beautiful Orangutans just so happened to be the mother of our tour guide, Ryan. She has been working with them for years and years, and she gave us some incredible information about the primates. First, she told us that the Orangutans paint everyday, and their artwork was displayed for everyone to see. They can also use iPads to communicate. But the most amazing thing she told us was that one of the Orangutans, Peanut, was actually the first primate to receive infused chemotherapy treatment for her cancer. It was an amazing breakthrough for scientists, and the treatment was successful and she has been healthy for over a year!

Jumpy Capuchin Monkey

For the last part of our VIP tour, we got to go behind the scenes to the veterinary offices, and got to meet a few new additions to the Jungle Island family. First, was an adorable baby kangaroo, who is only a few months old, and hangs in a pouch all day waiting for his bottle. We got hold the little guy and, of course, capture the memory with a picture! Then, we met a few month old baby Capuchin Monkey, who was as cute and as hyper as he could be! We fed him some grapes as he jumped from person to person, crawling all over our laps and heads. He also had a little blanket that he absolutely loved, and would grab it and snuggle with it whenever he wasn’t hopping around!

After that, we said goodbye to Ryan, and went to pick up our unforgettable photographs from the gift shop. I am so glad that we were able to capture all of the beautiful memories of our VIP Land Animal tour in Miami, and I would recommend everyone to this tour and can guarantee that they will have an experience of a lifetime!
