Play and Swim With Dolphins
in Panama City Beach

Gulf World Marine Park is one of the few places nationwide where you have the opportunity to Swim with a Dolphin! You’ll experience the power and playfulness of this amazing mammal in waist to chest deep water. Your experience may include a dorsal fin pull around the dolphin habitat, a dolphin kiss, a dolphin handshake and much more. This interactive program is comprised of two segments.
