Program description

The Newest Attraction in Scottsdale

Spending time in Scottsdale?

Do you dream of working with animals?  Your dream can come true when you spend half a day with one of our dolphin trainers!

Your Dolphin Trainer Experience

As an “apprentice” Dolphin Trainer, you’ll take a leading role as you help the trainer during a scheduled Dolphin Trainer Experience program.

You’ll also step behind the scenes for a tour of the fish house and more.

Extend your time with our dolphins as you get a lesson in dolphin anatomy and in-depth hands-on opportunity. Our Dolphin Trainer Experience also includes an introduction to positive reinforcement training with opportunities to put the skills you learned to work as you help with a training or enrichment session with the dolphins.

At the end of the program, you’ll leave with a personal understanding of the importance of protecting our oceans.  Your Dolphin Trainer Experience will include information about the Dolphinaris Foundation, our Blu program and how we are working to use education, research and conservation to make better lives for dolphins everywhere.


Included in your Dolphin Trainer Experience

Beach Club Day Pass
As part of your experience, enjoy complimentary Beach Club access. Spend the day lounging in our ‘humans only’ pool, relaxing in our two Jacuzzis, or ordering food and drinks from Docktails Patio Bar & Grill. It’s Scottsdale’s most indulgent pool experience. People watching. Dolphin watching. What could be better?

Into the Blu Virtual Reality
You also receive a complimentary virtual reality experience with your program. Go deep with our unique virtual reality journey Into the Blu! This 5-minute experience begins in the beautiful waters of Cancun—soon followed by what lurks below: a vivid, 360° view of pollution’s impact on sea life. Immerse yourself in one of the most important issues facing our planet today and be inspired to help save our oceans.
