When DPMMR opened to the public in 2018, we accepted responsibility for the lifelong care of our seven resident dolphins. With the exception of Jessica & Dinghy, who have lived at this facility since the early 1980's, all of our dolphins were born here. None of our adopted dolphins could survive on their own in the wild and therefore depend on our team for their survival and welfare.
Our dolphins reside in a natural seawater lagoon where they receive a complete diet, veterinary care, enrichment, and mental stimulation from our professional caretakers daily. Our dolphins are never forced to do anything, and our positive reinforcement training methods allow us to build trusting relationships with each individual. This training style encourages the animals to showcase their unique personalities, and we wouldn't have it any other way.
The truth is - we love these animals. We will do anything we can to ensure they're happy, healthy, and well cared for, and your visit to DPMMR is what enables us to provide this care.

Adopt A Dolphin
Taking care of dolphins is no easy feat - and it's not easy on the bank either...
From feeding 200 pounds of high-quality fish, to offering world class veterinary care, to making sure the dolphins have more-than-a-few fun toys to interact with, caring for the resident dolphins requires over $1,000 a day! You can help us offset this cost by symbolically adopting one of our resident animals!

Our education programs provide the funds necessary to care for our dolphins (and to help their wild counterparts, too!) You can support our dolphin family and have fun doing it by booking a dolphin experience at DPMMR.
