Marineland Dolphin Conservation

Marineland Dolphin Adventure, the world’s first oceanarium, invites you to join us in creating lasting memories at our 1.3 million gallon series of dolphin habitats. Choose from a variety of interactive programs, which range from those for land-loving guests to enjoy dolphins up-close, to those that offer the opportunity to immerse yourself in the dolphins’ aquatic world as you swim with our gentle residents. Experience these amazing animals for yourself. General admission guests are able to view the dolphins through 6 x 10 ft acrylic windows as they swim, play and interact with guests in programs alongside the pristine Atlantic coastline. Book your program reservations in advance to ensure your own thrilling dolphin encounter! Find out more at

Whether you have a special love for dolphins, as many do, or are looking for a variety of fun things to do during your next trip to Saint Augustine, visiting the Marineland Dolphin Conservation will surely be worth your time. At this rather low-key attraction, you’ll find both entertainment and education, not to mention in support of a great cause.

There are actually a few different ways to enjoy MDC. You can simply pay for general admission and have a basic encounter, watching the dolphins from a distance and touring the grounds, you can add a behind-the-seas tour, you can partake in a more up-close-and-personal program (such as Touch & Feed or Trainer for a Day), or do an eco-excursion and get the inclusive experience.

If you’re deciding what to do while you’re in town, the next big thing is to decide where to stay. Pearl of the Sea is an upscale bed and breakfast, only minutes from MDC. We’re literally just up the coast a few miles. Our accommodations are heavenly, our location is ideal, and our customer service is what you deserve. Plan a retreat that will revitalize you to the core – one that begins and ends with our welcoming B&B, and maybe some Marineland Dolphin Conservation somewhere in the middle.
