My Writings. My Thoughts.
In Dolphin Discovery we are very excited about fulfilling the dream of swimming with dolphins to 5000 children through the program “Ten Thousand Smiles”.
In recent days, we held a press conference where Ms. Mariana Zorrilla de Borge, the president of the State DIF announced that as part of the Children’s Day celebrations, the company Dolphin Discovery will receive five thousand children in several of their dolphin through the “Program 10 000 smiles”, where in exchange for a toy may water activities on their premises.
At a press conference accompanied by the Minister of Social Responsibility Dolphin Discovery, Nenina Albor, commercial director of Grupo Dolphin Discovery, Ms. Claudia Sosa, Ms. Katy Rose, Director of Administration and Finance and Human Resources Director, Ms. Guadalupe Jimenez Ms. Mariana Zorrilla called for throughout society, families, people in general, so that their contribution will make a difference to celebrate with a toy for children in the state.
With everyone’s support, it is possible to give ten thousand smiles!
In Mexico, we celebrate Children´s day as an act that goes beyond the mere fact of celebrating this wonderful stage of life. Filled with laughter, learning, and memories, children’s day is a constant reminder of the social responsibility that has been granted to us to ensure the healthy formation of a child.
Being aware of this, Dolphin Discovery decided to start the program #DiezMilSonrisas in which hundreds of children participated bringing a toy that was destined to another child in situations of vulnerability, in exchange, all children who donated their toy received the surprise of swimming with dolphins in a day that was devoted exclusively to celebrate them.
The meeting was on April 28th in eight of our dolphinariums, where we received about three thousand 400 children, who had the Experience of a Lifetime to swim with dolphins at Dolphin Discovery. There were games, gifts, hot dogs, hamburgers, Piñatas, laughter, dancing and fun. It was a memorable day; specially for the team of Dolphin Discovery that had the opportunity to make happy so many children in our facilities and out of them.
#DiezMilSonrisas will come back for sure, because we enjoy creating happy moments and helping those who have less.
At Dolphin Discovery Riviera Maya, we enjoy the company of dozens of children from different schools of the community; every Thursday, they visit us at the facilities of the Dolphinarium in Puerto Aventuras. During these visits, children observe dolphins, learn about their habitat and become aware about the care of their environment.
Before each visit, the trainer-guide will visit the Children´s School and give them a talk about the dolphins, sea lions and manatees. In those talks, children learn about our Animal Breeding Program “Miracle”; and explains them that our team of veterinarians, biologists and coaches are fully dedicated to the animals in their charge and are experts in the field of reproductive science in marine mammals.
After the talk, children come to the Dolphinarium with the company of their teacher and they are guided by the coach in charge who will provide all the information they need and will clarify all their doubts to raise preservation awareness and care towards marine species.
On this occasion, the distinguished visitors were the children of Puerto Aventuras College, who enjoyed seeing dancing the dolphins: Lizzy, Regina and Audry, Popeye, and a Californian sea lion born at Dolphin Discovery facilities in the Riviera Maya.
In Dolphin Discovery we are very happy to celebrate the birth of a new baby. Foxie, one of our most iconic females, just had his fourth breeding ever.
This calf was born in the beautiful location of Cozumel, just a few hours ago and it went very well, the happy mom and breeding are very healthy. We do not know the sex of the offspring, but hopefully we will soon.
Cozumel, for its clear water, was the perfect backdrop for the beautiful spectacle that depicts the birth of a baby, in addition, by the above conditions, it will be easier for trainers to take the clock monitoring of both breeding and mother and thus make sure that everything is going well.
Foxie is a medium sized female, age is approximately 25 years and its main feature is that she is very strong and dominant, however, as a mom, Foxie has always been very protective, patient and loving.
Her first brood had called Marina, which is currently also in Cozumel and is now almost 10 years old. Marina was always very curious and playful.
The second breeding Foxie was Padme, she was born in February 2006 at the location of Puerto Aventuras. The most distinguishing feature is that Padme loves playing with all kinds of stuff that is in the background, like rocks, coral, seaweed and shells.
The third is called breeding Portos Foxie, who was born in February 2011, and was the first time I had a male Foxie. Portos always been very independent and fast learning.
We are waiting for you at Cozumel, where you can meet Marina, Padme, Portos and new breeding, the whole family together!
Congratulations to all of the Dolphin Discovery and MIRACLE program people who make this posible!
We’ll se you again soon!
On Wednesday, April 3, at Dolphin Discovery, the largest company of dolphins in the world, we put on party to welcome our one millionth visitor in our Isla Mujeres dolphinarium, after 18 years of being open to the public.
The Sanchez family, welcomed the news of being the one millionth visitor to the dolphinarium, so were recognized with a “check” valid for a million dolphin swim for life!. Originally from Monterrey, Ricardo Sanchez and Alejandra Sanchez Vega, along with their children, and six family members were received in Isla Mujeres with necklaces and refreshing cocktails.
The lucky winners said they were surprised and grateful for the recognition, precisely because one of the ideas to come to Cancun, was the experience of swimming with dolphins.
“The arrival of our guest a million, is the result of the efforts of all who make it possible for the daily operation a success. To reach this number of guests is for us one of the happiest moments of our history, representing one million of dreams fulfilled, “said Eduardo Albor, CEO of Grupo Dolphin Discovery.

Dolphin Discovery Riviera Maya is proud to announce the birth of a newborn dolphin to mama “Regina”. 18 year old Regina is a large female, known for her strong, dominant character. She was very protective of her first offspring born in 2010, “Eddie”, who now lives in Dolphin Discovery Costa Maya. We still do not know the gender of hew newborn but it is healthy and thriving close by mama’s side. Regina is sure to be a great mother to our latest dolphin family member!
With this final birth of 2012, Dolphin Discovery is thrilled with another successful year of the “Miracle” reproduction program. This year we were blessed with the births of 8 newborn dolphins, 3 in Puerto Aventuras, 2 in Isla Mujeres, 1 in Cozumel, 1 in Tortola and 1 in Cabo! We also welcomed a newborn manatee to Puerto Aventuras, a species that is considered to be endangered and the birth is a great source of pride for our team. Our reproduction program ensures the highest quality care for our pregnant moms and 24 hour monitoring of the newborns. Our team of veterinarians, biologists and trainers are completely devoted to the animals in their care and are experts in the field of reproductive science in marine mammals.
Congratulations to Regina and a hearty “felicidades y gracias” to our “Miracle” team who worked so hard this year in providing the very best care to all the marine mammals in their charge.
