Miami Seaquarium's "Dine with the Dolphins" on V-Day Offers Catered Buffet and Freebies

A common myth suggests that humans

and bottlenose dolphins are two of only three species of mammals (the

other being bonobos) that have sex for pleasure, so it's only natural

that this Valentine's Day you take your sweetie to Miami Seaquarium

to "Dine with the Dolphins" in order to set the mood and make the

night special.

A catered dinner

buffet includes, but is not limited to, assorted appetizers,

hand-carved churrasco with chimichurri sauce, chicken breast picatta,

roasted potatoes, heart-shaped ravioli, steamed vegetables, mixed

baby greens salad, and red velvet cake & chocolate covered

strawberries. The food will be set on the Dolphin Harbor terrace,

overlooking the horny cetaceans. A bottle of wine - one per couple

- is included in the price of $398 plus tax per couple, as well as

two annual passes (valued at $50), and two "Swim with the Dolphins"

gift certificates (valued at $199). In essence, this is probably only a Valentine's Day option if you're planning to get your money's worth out of the annual passes and really want to go swimming with the dolphins.

Guests are greeted at the main entrance at 7:45 p.m. and escorted to the location where a candlelit dinner awaits, and where you might catch a glimpse of playful porpoises getting their Valentine's Day groove on. Miami Seaquarium can't guarantee this unique experience will bring you pleasure, but it certainly can't hurt your chances.

Availability is limited and advance reservations are required. For more information or to make reservations, call 305-365-2501 or visit
