Dolphin Meet and Greet

Please read the following details before booking!

In this brief encounter, participants will have the opportunity to catch a quick glimpse of our dolphin pod behind the scenes. Prior to the selected Dolphin Presentation, participants have reserved seating and get a chance to learn more about our dolphin pod. Following the Dolphin Presentation, our team will lead participants around to the back pools of the Ascension St. Vincent Dolphin Pavilion, where each guest will get to give a double “high-five” to one of the members of the dolphin pod.

Cost: $20 per participant. Meet and greet ticket(s) will also serve as entry into the dolphin presentation

All participants must be at least 6 years old and participants under the age of 14 years must be accompanied by an adult who has also paid to participate in the Dolphin Meet and Greet

Program Requirements: 

  • Tickets must be purchased in advance.
  • Participants must arrive 15 minutes prior to the presentation start time to check in and have the opportunity to learn more about the Zoo’s dolphin pod.
  • To participate, guests will also need to have Zoo admission purchased or reserved for the same day.
  • All participants are required to sign a liability waiver after registering.
  • Guests are encouraged to bring their own devices to capture photos/videos as photographers will not be provided during this experience. Due to needing both hands free, participants will not be able to "selfie" this experience, but the opportunity will be given for a member of your party to take photos/video of the interaction. 
  • This experience typically requires a short period of kneeling, but we are happy to accommodate any special needs. If someone in your group requires accommodation, please contact the Zoo in advance at or 317-630-2000.

Be sure to select the same date as your Zoo visit!
