Picture Perfect for the Holidays!

If a picture’s worth a thousand words, imagine how friends and family will talk when they see a holiday photo picturing you and a dolphin! Now through December 22nd, Dolphin Research Center is again giving guests the opportunity for a holiday photo. Visitors who participate in DRC’s Meet the Dolphin program will be offered holiday-themed props, and can bring their own Santa hats, reindeer antlers or other accessories 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 $15 for one person, and $30 for two to six people in the same shot. Quality prints are also available and print prices vary depending on number ordered. Group size is limited to six people.

Share the holiday spirit with one of your dolphin friends and make a photo memory together that will last forever!

Trick or Treat!

Does anyone remember this Halloween costume?

You could roam your neighborhood collecting candy while dressed as everyone's favorite dolphin. (Yes, there are some people on staff at DRC who own up to doing just that.)

These days, we could probably do better than a plastic mask and shiny acetate suit. How great would it be to create a dolphin outfit, or any costume, reusing things from something else or using recyclable materials?

Go green for Halloween. All of your dolphin friends will be grateful!

Kibby's ready for Fintasy Fest or any costumed event!

Hula Hoop Cuteness!

Several of the dolphins at DRC enjoy playing with various toys. Hula Hoops are a favorite, particularly with the youngsters. Check out Louie and Gypsi playing with and (mostly) sharing two hoops recently during playtime.
