Trainer for a Day

Be a Trainer for a Day!

During the Trainer for a Day program, up to four lucky participants will shadow our Marine Animal Care Specialists around for a seven-hour day. Our guest trainers will care for our animals and experience feeding, touching, and communicating with our sea animals. Trainers can also get in water with our dolphins and give them signals, motioning them to jump 10 feet in the air, flip their tails, give a kiss or handshake, or perform an amazing feat. It’s a rare experience to get up-close with our unique marine species.

  • $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.
