At the Miami Seaquarium, you can sign up for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Actually, you can sign up for six once-in-a-lifetime experiences. The attraction's animal encounters include swimming with dolphins (or, for non-swimmers, standing in a shallow pool) and shaking hands, sharing a friendly kiss and trying a few training signals, taking a dip with some harbor seals, donning a dive helmet for a stroll among tropical fish and sea turtles as you explore a reef, becoming a marine mammal trainer for a day, and a personal behind-the-scenes VIP tour of the aquarium's shows and animals.
