Tour description provided by Viator

Add to your family memories of Orlando on a full-day trip to Marineland and St Augustine! At Marineland, a dolphin observation center and marine park on the Atlantic coast, choose one of two ways to interact with Atlantic bottlenose dolphins – either a 30-minute swim or a meet-and-feed. Then, head to the charming and historic town of St Augustine where you have the rest of the day to explore. Have lunch at an outdoor cafe, visit Castillo de San Marcos (the oldest fort in the United States) or walk the maze of cobblestone streets before you head back to Orlando.

Get up close and personal with Atlantic bottlenose dolphins and explore the oldest city in the United States on this day trip from Orlando to Marineland and St Augustine.

At Marineland, a dolphin center and marine park, you have two options to interact with those lovable creatures of the sea – bottlenose dolphins. Looking for an experience that doesn’t require a swimsuit? Opt for the Dolphin Experience, a brief meet-and-feed where you’ll pet, feed and interact with these friendly creatures. If you do want to get wet, choose the Swim with Dolphins option, a 30-minute swim that includes a 30-minute educational presentation before you get in the water.

After you depart Marineland, you head to downtown St Augustine, where the rest of your afternoon can be enjoyed at your leisure. Visit the famous Castillo de San Marcos (the oldest fort in the United States) or wander the dozens of cobblestone streets. As the oldest European-settled town in the continental United States, St Augustine dates back to 1565 and offers a wealth of cultural and historic sites around every corner.
