|Admission to Dolphin Research Center gives you access to a variety of narrated boardwalk and theater presentations throughout the day. These educational experiences take place about every half an hour.|
To salute the brave men and women of the United States Armed Forces, Dolphin Research Center is offering free admission to veterans, current military service personnel and their immediate families on Veterans Day, Tuesday, November 11th. Personnel only need to show their military identification cards or other proof of military service when they arrive at the facility. Dolphin Research Center offers fun-filled, educational narrated behavior demonstrations throughout the day and a variety of exciting interactive programs that bring guests up close to their family of Atlantic bottlenose dolphins and California sea lions.
Dolphin Research Center maintains a strong commitment to the armed forces. Every day the center offers a military discount of $2.50 off the regular adult admission. This discount is available to all military personnel and veterans. Several staff members also served in the armed forces, including Co-Founder/Chief Operating Officer Mandy Rodriguez who served in the U.S. Marine Corps. On the facility's grounds, there is a special garden area dedicated to veterans of all wars. This garden was originally installed by a group of veterans who participated in a dolphin assisted therapy program. DRC also works closely with the Wounded Warrior Project throughout the year and was honored to receive a Carry Forward Award from the organization.
