The call of the wild is like a call from an elderly grandparent: though you can’t quite make out what’s being said, you feel better about yourself when you answer. Pick up nature's phone with today's Groupon: for $85, you get a shallow-water dolphin encounter at Dolphins Cove in Key Largo (a $145 value). This encounter takes place every day at 1:30 p.m.

Dolphins Cove invites guests of all ages to interact with man's favorite marine mammal in a safe, shallow environment during one of its daily dolphin encounters. Dolphin trainers lead Flipper-friendly guests into the waist-high water of the natural lagoon, where participants can rub dolphin bellies, formally shake flippers, or co-paint Lisa Frank renditions of dolphin-child friendships. With trainer help, guests can also lead the adroit swimmers in a series of tricks, with finned friends singing and dancing upon command. The aquatic encounter guarantees one-on-one dolphin time, letting guests enjoy the water-dwelling sonar practitioners' playful intelligence in a safe setting away from pirates nattering about losing the keys to their diaries.

Dolphin Cove

Like all dolphins, Elvis loves to chase fish, leap into the air, and paint abstract-expressionist artwork. He does, however, need a human to hand him a brush, which is where the Painting with Dolphins program comes in. This is just one of the initiatives at Dolphin Cove that reveals these marine mammals' fascinating behaviors. In a natural lagoon, trainers facilitate human-dolphin relations through encounters such as swimming with, snorkeling beside, or rubbing the belly of Elvis and his cohorts. The dolphins may also regale guests with antics such as sharing their favorite toys or showing off a new behavior. Dolphin Cove's additional services include the Trainer for a Day program and a live webcam, which was an idea Elvis brought from his background in IT.
