Trainer for a Day

Be a Trainer for a Day!


During the Trainer for a Day program, up to four lucky participants will shadow one of our animal care specialistls around during a typical seven-hour day. Our guest trainers will care for our animals and experience feeding, touching, and communicating.  Trainers can also get in-water with our dolphins, learn how we communicate through use of signals, and motion them to do a series of fun behaviors. It’s truly a rare experience to get up-close with some of our marine mammals.

  • $400 per person
  • Registration includes a Trainer for a Day T-Shirt, souvenir Kodak photo, animal painting, and lunch with your trainer.
  • Participants must be 52” or taller, and at least 12 years old* (see age requirements below)
  • Participants must be able to climb stairs, lift up to 50 pounds, swim without assistance, and communicate effectively in English. 
  • Available on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays during park operating days.
