New For 2024 - Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park Opens New Dolphin Oasis In Destin, Florida

The Gularium Marine Adventure Park has been a favorite attraction in Destin, Florida since 1955. One of Florida’s original roadside attractions, the Gulfarium has been entertaining and educating audiences for almost 70 years. The park continues to evolve to meet the needs of its animal residents and recently opened the new Dolphin Oasis in 2024!

The new Dolphin Oasis is an immersive, natural-themed experience that consists of three large, interconnected habitats, totaling over one million gallons of Gulf saltwater. With animal welfare, the guest experience and education top of mind, the Dolphin Oasis features grandstand seating for 480 guests while still providing intimate up-close opportunities for guests to view and interact with the Gulfarium’s dolphin ambassadors. The exhibit habitat will serve as a nursery for the birth of new calves and features a 27-foot acrylic split-level viewing area where guests can observe the dolphins from above and below the water’s surface. The encounter habitat provides new and improved opportunities for guests of all ages to play and learn through interactive, in-water and out-of-water experiences, with the resident dolphins.

Opening spring of 2024, the Dolphin Oasis is included with the guest admission price. Personalized interactive dolphin experiences may be purchased separately. The Dolphin Oasis is also available to be rented for special occasions including weddings, cocktail parties and corporate events.
