Holiday Photo Time Again!

Warm sun, sparkling oceans and stately palm trees might not have the Florida Keys in the holiday spirit yet, but Dolphin Research Center is giving guests a head start on their holiday photos. From now until December 22nd, visitors who participate in DRC’s Meet the Dolphin program can also pose with the dolphins for a holiday photo. Visitors will be offered a number of props such as Santa hats, reindeer antlers, and holiday wreaths to use while posing. DRC’s experienced photographers will shoot the pictures using high-resolution digital cameras. Meet the Dolphin gives guests the opportunity to go onto the floating dock to give backrubs and share a “flippershake” with a dolphin. The program is offered several times each day on a walk-in basis and costs $25 per person in addition to general admission prices. The photos can be supplied on CD for $30 (including all members of the family), or as prints. Print prices vary depending on number ordered.

Your holiday card could be the coolest one your friends and family receive and you'll have a terrific memory of your dolphin visit.

Donation for Dolphins!

The National Council for Traditional Arts (NCTA) recently presented a generous donation to Dolphin Research Center (DRC). Over $1500.00 was raised as a portion of the proceeds from the 1st Annual Florida Keys Traditional Music Festival that was organized by the NCTA in January 2010 at Sombrero Resort in Marathon. Area musician Joe Mama presented the check on behalf of the NCTA to DRC President and CEO Rita Irwin and Rainbow.

Many thanks to all of the organizers, performers, volunteers and attendees of the Music Festival. We appreciate your support!
