I swam with the seals last weekend with my boyfriend and it was the most amazing experience. The first 15 minutes is a complete free swim with them, and then they split you up into your group and do the pictures and training. It was much less structured than the dolphin swim which gave us a lot more freedom to... More

We drove a couple hours down to Miami, and when it was all said and done, it was hundreds cheaper to swim with dolphins at Miami Seaquarium than at Discovery Cove ($200 x 2 tickets).
