Sometimes you have to take life by the fins. The Dolphin Explorer Adventure lets you do just that. You'll notice that when trainers talk about their dolphins and everything they can do, it's like listening to a story about a human being. Just like us, dolphins crave attention and love to please others. They have their moods, strengths and weaknesses. Some dolphins are more vocal than others. Visitors to Dolphin Explorer are likely to be treated to one of the more "talkative" animals.
Your 50 minutes of intense hands on play with a dolphin will likely make it into the top 5 things you couldn't live with yourself if you hadn't tried. It's thrilling to be in the water with these slippery guys. They love the lime light. It won't be long before you're enjoying a solo ride on the dolphin's belly and back, plus a myriad of tricks they perform several feet above your head. The kisses are nice too.
You'll learn how big dolphins grow, how long they live and how trainers tell them apart. The dolphin you meet in today's adventure more than likely has a birthmark, freckling around the eyes, unique shade of rostrum, or scars from the life they lived before starting their careers here.
You may laugh at the idea of a "career dolphin," but this is quite the case. These solid animals rarely discriminate one guest from another. Whether a visitor is disabled, young, old, tall or short, the dolphin is consistently able to maintain his behaviors with a high degree of enthusiasm - and that's what makes Dolphin Explorer so compelling. These guys are true pros. Only they get paid in fish.
The human touch
One of the most fundamental parts of training dolphins is conditioning them to accept different types of human touch. The animal is rewarded for resisting the impulse to move away from this touch. Dolphins are trained as well, to present different parts of their bodies to the trainer without resistance.
