Dolphin Discovery

Swim with dolphins!

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom is the only place in Northern California where you can get in the water with bottlenose dolphins. Spend quality time swimming with these amazing marine mammals in a rare hands-on learning session.

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 trainers will tell you how we care for and demonstrate training techniques for this highly-intelligent species while answering all of your questions. The program is offered all year long. Space in the program is limited and fills up fast. Make your reservation early!

For safety purposes all participants must be at least 48" tall and six years or older. We advise swimmers to leave all jewelry at home, as there is no jewelry or fingernail jewels allowed and worn in the water. The ability to swim is essential to completing the program. If the guest cannot swim, they may not participate in the full program, including the dolphin dorsal fin tow. Swimming ability is determined at the discretion of the trainer. Participants 11 years of age and under must be accompanied by a paid adult participant or chaperone. (A chaperone takes the program with the participant, but does not get into the water. There is a $20 chaperone fee).
