At our core, we aim to provide a place where families feel welcomed and comfortable from the moment they come through our doors.
More than ever, it is our hope that, through our programs, tours, and experiences, people will join us to help provide the best resources for both people and dolphins alike.
While respecting and seeking the best life possible for the dolphins in our care and their environment, our goal is to provide unique, animal-assisted therapeutic, motivational, and educational programs for children and adults with special needs and abilities and their families and caregivers.
