Dolphin Discovery


Meet dolphins up-close!

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom is the only place in Northern California to meet bottlenose dolphins. Spend quality time up-close and personal with these amazing marine mammals in a rare, hands-on learning session.

Save BIG! Book your interaction today and save on this memorable experience! 

The Dolphin Discovery program begins with a fun and informative classroom session followed by an up-close interaction directly with the dolphins. The whole program lasts approximately two hours. During this time you'll learn all about our marine mammals. Our Animal Care Specialists will tell you how we care for and demonstrate various conditioning techniques for this highly-intelligent species while answering all of your questions. The program is offered most days of the year, but space is limited so make your reservation early! 

For safety purposes all participants must be at least 48" tall and six years or older. We advise participants to leave all jewelry at home, as no jewelry or fingernail jewels are allowed in the water. The ability to swim and be comfortable in the water is essential to completing the program. If the guest cannot swim, they may not participate in the full program. Swimming ability is determined at the discretion of the Animal Care Specialist. Participants 11 years of age and under must be accompanied by a paid adult participant or chaperone.
