Dive into Their World

Meet the dolphins of The Seas with Nemo & Friends Pavilion at Epcot and learn about their complex undersea behavior.

During this 3-hour experience, which wraps up with a once-in-a-lifetime photo op and a souvenir, you’ll talk to the expert trainers and researchers who work with our bottlenose dolphins every day.

Gain a better understanding and greater appreciation of these wondrous creatures as you:

  • Interact with our dolphins in waist-deep water for approximately 30 minutes.
  • See firsthand how we care for the dolphins day to day.
  • View backstage areas and learn how the dolphins are trained.
  • Sit in on a training and research session with our team of marine mammal specialists.
  • Participate in conversations about global issues affecting ocean life.

You will get wet—most likely splashed—by our dolphin residents! Please bring a bathing suit if you wish to enter the water. You do not need to swim or be SCUBA-certified to take part in this experience.

Know Before You Go

View important information including experience details, Guest restrictions and amenities provided.

  • Dolphins are highly intelligent animals whose interaction with Guests is voluntary; they are never forced to participate. Fortunately, dolphins are also extremely social and generally friendly, so while interaction isn’t guaranteed, it is likely.
  • Please note that this is a wading encounter where the dolphins are brought to you in waist-deep water. You will not actually be swimming with the dolphins at any time.
  • Guests must be 13 years of age or older. All participants under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a paying adult (18 years of age or older). For safety reasons, Guests must be able to fully understand English.
  • A bathing suit is required to enter the water. Locker rooms with free lockable lockers, towels, shampoo and hair dryers will be provided. Shorty wetsuits will be provided in men’s sizes XS to 5X and women’s XS to 5X.
  • No cameras, video equipment or cell phones may be used while backstage. Photography is allowed and encouraged in non-backstage areas.
  • Unfortunately, no observers are allowed backstage. Also, no jewelry of any kind is permitted in the aquarium.
  • Please check in at Guest Relations outside the Epcot Main Entrance 15 minutes prior to your experience. You will forfeit the entire price of your tour if you no-show or cancel within 2 days of your reservation.
