Cleaning, lots and lots of cleaning. Working side by side with dolphins, dolphin trainers and sometimes beluga whales. However you aren't working with the animals themselves you are scrubbing the pool and the buckets of fish. I got to talk to guests and teach them about the dolphins and help them prepare to meet the dolphins by the side of the pool or even in a wetsuit in the water. Most of the time it was hard work but in the end I got many opportunities to meet and interact with dolphins myself as long as I had worked hard during my shifts and had a good attitude.
