Dolphin Discovery Group, the world's largest Dolphin Family with 13 facilities, is celebrating its 19th Anniversary today. Established in 1994, the company aims to make Swimming with Dolphins a life changing experience that is not only fun, but educates by sharing the importance of respecting sea life, from these marvelous marine mammals to the beaches that surround the homes of these beloved creatures.
From the beginning, Dolphin Discovery Group has become a leader in its industry because of the organization's dedication to its Dolphins. In 2002 the group created the Miracle program in which its in-house veterinarians work on understanding the reproductive process of marine mammals. The Miracle program has resulted in 84 first and second generation Dolphins born under human care leading to 5 of the 13 facilities, known as Miracle dolphinariums, to be completely populated by Dolphins born under human care.
Dolphin Discovery Group has 9 of its 13 dolphinarium accredited by the Alliance of Marine Mammals Parks and Aquariums (AMMPA), located in top international destinations including Cancun, Cozumel, Puerto Vallarta, Los Cabos in Mexico and the Cayman Islands in the Caribbean.
The group has over 1,200 associates with 110 trainers, one in-house veterinarian per facility and 26 corporate-level educators who specialize and are pioneers in the field.
"Highlighting these specific accomplishments makes 19 years seem so easy, but each is a direct result of the commitment our associates make to the Group and the creatures in our care as well as the satisfaction of the over 5 million guests we have received through the years," said Eduardo Albor, CEO of Dolphin Discovery Group. "In 2014 we will continue expanding with 3 new dolphinariums and the celebration of our 20th year in existence."
