I doubt it as you have to pay a deposit and it would not be safe to send credit card details by email.

okay - that's true. but maybe it would work if I booked the regular swim package and ask them to upgrade it to a trainer day? then they already have all details they need.

I think I'll ask them when the time gets closer. I think I'll save my money for two years now. maybe then the booking will be available from online, too. :D

I am thinking of surprising DH with this package, but am not sure. It sounds a little too structured, but then a pp said it was over at 3pm, giving us 2.5 hours on our own at the end. Is 2.5 hours enough to explore the lazy river and Tropical Snorkel area? The dolphins, lazy river and tropical snorkel area are the three things we would be interested in most. Also, DH has a mobility disability. He will be using a wheelchair, but can walk with canes. He cannot do stairs well. Would he be able to get around the back areas? What do you think?
Thanks for any information you have!

The swap the programme around a bit, but the last time I did this, there was a huge amount of stairs involved as we were looking at the filtration systems. Some of the backstage areas are also quite tricky even if you don't have mobility issues. I would not recommend this for anybody with mobility issues. The official statement from the Discovery Cove website is:

"Trainer for a Day" participants must be in good physical condition and at least 6 years old.

They have changed this around a couple of times, but you always got interactions with other animals as well.

What's the extra cost of the TFAD program vs the dolphin experience?

A lot depends on when you want to go. I just had a look in September and the normal dolphin swim package starts at $199 and TFAD starts at $398.
