This educational and research non-profit facility is located in Marathon on the Florida Keys and has been operating for over 30 years.
Visitors have the chance to learn about these friendly mammals and even swim with them.
Many might remember the popular TV Serie "Flipper" which was filmed here in the 70s. We actually flirted with Flipper's grandson!
