Seaquarium Seal Swim: Give your stay in Miami the ultimate seal of approval with a seal swim experience. Come along and take a dip alongside the harbour’s friendliest dwellers: its very own smiley seals. This is an unparalleled programme, which includes both deep and shallow water interaction with everyone’s favourite sea mammal.
Your seal swim experience begins the moment you strip off your everyday gear and slip into a wetsuit. One of our charismatic seal trainers will then give you a brief but comprehensive safety talk before taking the plunge. Once you are all geared up and have a head full of know-how, it is time to slip into the waters.
Enjoy a leisurely 15 to 20 minutes swim alongside these magnificent creatures. It won’t take you long to realise that they are as intelligent as they are adorable. These playful mammals just can’t get enough of playing with the people that come to visit them in their own homes! They are indeed very generous hosts.
Throughout the interaction, you will be invited to swim on your own account next to the seals. You will then be personally introduced to your new aquatic friends and will receive some thrilling hugs and kisses. Then take part in a delightful training session where the seals will show off their skills. To wrap up the experience, you are also invited to a day of shows and exhibits at the mesmerising Miami Seaquarium; it’s going to be a splash!
