Best Time To Visit

Since the busiest travel times fall during the cooler months, choosing weekdays or early mornings might still provide a nice balance. 

Even though the weather is warmer, going on weekdays outside of the busiest travel seasons may be your best bet if you want to avoid crowds above all else.

Seasons: Opting for the cooler months between November and April allows you to have a more comfortable experience interacting with the dolphins.

Weekdays: Compared to weekdays, weekends are typically busier. If you want to escape the heavier crowds, try to visit on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday.

Early in the morning: At 9.15 am, the park opens. If you get there shortly after opening, you can take part in the program before the crowds get too big.
