For more than a decade, guests have been able to feed the dolphins at SeaWorld Orlando.  All good things must come to an end as SeaWorld has announced that they are discontinuing the dolphin feeding at Dolphin Cove.

The park is now offering packages starting at $15 that will allow 10-minute sessions that include touching a dolphin and getting a photo taken with one.  Guests will be able to sign up for these sessions beginning March 2.

Sea World currently has similar programs in their San Diego and San Antonio parks which were redesigned in  2012 and 2013.

There have been few instances where guests have been injured due to a dolphin.  Back in 2012, an 8-year old girl made headlines as she was feeding a dolphin at the Dolphin Cove when a dolphin lunged at the tray of fish in her hands, biting her arm.

Guests are encouraged to visit Discovery Cove, SeaWorld’s sister park across the road that offers dolphin feeding and even more interaction.
