This fantastic 2-day adventure gives you a taste of all the great things south Florida has to offer. Experience one of the wildest airboat rides in the sunshine state, view the beautiful Everglades and enjoy overnight accommodation in the heart of South Beach’s Art Deco District! A once-in-a-lifetime ONE on ONE dolphin swim completes this first class excursion from Orlando.

Our guide to 2-day South Beach Getaway with Dolphin Encounter

After an early morning departure from Orlando, travel to the amazing Florida Everglades National Park and jump aboard a classic airboat for an exciting cruise through the wetlands in search of local wildlife including alligators and turtles.

This thrilling wind-in-your-hair ride reaches speeds of up to 30 miles per hour across the “river of grass”. Afterwards get up close and personal at an Alligator and Snake handling show where you get the chance to learn, hold, feel, and get your pictures taken with these amazing animals.

Continue to Miami with its Palm-fringed beaches and striking art deco architecture. Here you visit Miami’s Bayside shopping area with its designer shops, boutiques and eateries and wonderful views.

Your accommodation is provided right in the heart of the Art Deco District in Miami South Beach, just seconds away from restaurants, shops, museums, nightclubs and the beach itself. Once you check-in to your hotel, you have the rest of the day and evening free to explore the area at leisure and top up your tan on world famous South Beach.

Day Two is the highlight of this fantastic excursion because its time for an amazing swim with dolphins! During your swim, you get to experience a whole host of behaviours including dorsal tow pulls, belly rubs, toe pushes, handshakes and the best of all a dolphin kiss! Remember that dolphin interaction is guaranteed! The dolphin swim programme lasts around 2 hours in total and includes 30 minutes in the water with the dolphins.

Those that select the non-Dolphin swim ticket are more than welcome to accompany family members to the dolphin facility to observe the experience. Alternatively, you can stay in South Beach for further exploration. If you choose to swim with the dolphins you still have the afternoon in Miami to top off that golden Florida tan on South Beach before leaving for Orlando at about 4.00pm.

  • After being picked up at 6am we did not arrive in Miami south beach until 17.30.Everglades stop off was poor,as was the stop off at a small shopping mall in downtown Miami for 3 hours before arriving at our destination hotel.The aim here was to get you to purchase a boat tour.Miami south beach is a fantastic place with an amazing beach and shopping so cant understand why we didnt head straight there.Hotel I would rate 2/3 star but was ok for 1 night.The dolphin swim was a fantastic experience but you would need to decide if rest of the trip justified your hours swim.Would I recommend this to friends and family def. not.

  • Firstly the good stuff.Madeline our tour guide was excellent and sorted a problem out with the dolphin swim booking. The dolphin swim was an amazing experience and well worth the money.Coach was freezing so pack warm clothing,Journey longer than expected and stop off at a small shopping centre on arrival at Miami was poor.Miami South beach was much better but we didnt arrive until 17.30 on the day of travel. Hotel was 2/3 star at best,glad it was only 1 night. Everglades boat ride is 30 minutes in length. Would i recommend this trip to my family or friends sadly no.
