Special Interactive Programs
Would you like to shake “hands” or get a kiss from an Atlantic bottlenose dolphin? Now you can when you sign up for our new Deckside Dolphin Encounter! You can have the opportunity of a lifetime when you feed, play with and touch one of our dolphins at the Texas State Aquarium. You will even get into the water with your dolphin!
You can be a Dolphin Trainer for a Day! Get up close and personal with a dolphin as you work side-by-side with one of our trainers.
Experience an incredible insider's view of the Aquarium. Discover our animals and plants in front of the galleries, then follow our guide and rediscover life behind the scenes. You'll see where we care for animals, how we prepare food, and where we keep newcomers before they can be seen by the public. Plus, you'll see how pumps, pipes, and filters work together to keep the animals and plants healthy.
