80 years young, Marineland is an iconic attraction offering opportunities to view and interact with bottlenose dolphins in a beautiful setting. No need for traveling great distances, fighting traffic or parking a mile from your destination.
Located along a pristine stretch of the Atlantic coastline on scenic A1A, Marineland welcomes guests of every age. General admission provides opportunities to view and learn about the animals in our care, and speak with staff and volunteers to answer all of your questions.
Take a journey back in time and discover the iconic history of the World’s first Oceanarium, where dolphin echolocation was first discovered, and where the first dolphin was trained. Our Behind the Seas Tour offers a backstage look at our facility and animal habitats, and an opportunity to explore our unique and fascinating history spanning 80 years. From our beginnings as an underwater film studio to our new, modern facility, Marineland Dolphin Adventure has been creating memories for generations. Along with our many advancements over the years, guests will learn about Marineland’s pioneering work in aquatic animal research and advancement of life support systems for aquatic environments.
The tour also features exhibits with animals native to the Southeast region of the United States and an opportunity to learn the importance of the Gulf Stream, ecosystems and conservation. Guests will also discover facts about invasive species, such as lionfish, and their effects on native populations along the eastern seaboard. Exhibits of Pacific Reef coral and sea life have recently been added for more enjoyment.
