      A singular, pivotal event can be the catalyst that ignites a lifelong passion. For five-year-old Albert Einstein, it was a compass his father gave to him. For Jacques Cousteau, it was learning to swim at the age of four. Virgin Galactic was born in the moment that Richard Branson, then 19, watched Neil Armstrong walk on the moon. Likewise, many of the top marine biologists, trainers, and researchers today trace the seeds of their passions for dolphins and whales to experiences just like the ones we offer at the Dolphin Center in Cabo.

      In particular, one of our programs gives you the definitive inside scoop, whether you’re considering a career with dolphins or simply want to spend some extended time with these enchanting and intelligent mammals. Our Trainer-For-A-Day Dream lifts the veil on the secrets of training dolphins, and offers a golden opportunity to actually assist our team of experts as they meet the nutritional, physical, social, intellectual, and relational needs of our bubbly residents.

      Working behind the scenes in every aspect of their work, you’ll be in close contact with our Pacific bottlenose dolphins for a full, unforgettable day. From feeding and behavioral training techniques to helping out during the Swim with Dolphins program, you’ll learn the essential skills required to be a top-notch trainer and #1 fan!

      This is a program for someone who wants to experience more than the normal swim, ride, and play experiences. This is a program for hardcore “dolphfans” - people with bright, inquisitive minds, hearts as large as the ocean, and hands that itch to get busy on behalf of their favorite friends from the sea. In short, it’s the program for you, so book it today while there are openings! After all, who knows? It just might lead to the perfect, pivotal moment that sparks your lifelong passion!

      No Jo-Jo-Joke!

      Dean Bernal was a young UCSB college student who had grown up along California’s coastline. Prick his finger and he bled seawater, so much was the ocean a part of his DNA. On a school break in 1981, Bernal took his first vacation to the Turks & Caicos Islands where, on one of his daily swims, he bumped into a trio of curious young dolphins. One in particular, “Jojo,” persisted in joining him from that point on each day, beginning a friendship-for-life the likes of which neither back then could have possibly imagined. By the time Bernal graduated, though, he was certain…so certain, in fact, that he packed up and moved permanently to the Turks & Caicos Islands to swim, play, work, and live year-round near best buddy, Jojo. By 1989, the dolphin was beloved by so many people that he was declared a National Treasure, and Bernal was simultaneously appointed his official guardian. Today, more than 34 years have passed since the moment that fate intervened in the lives of Jojo and college boy Bernal. They still spend hours together daily. Still laugh and play the games they both know so well. They are “brothers from another mother,” still sharing the longest, deepest friendship ever recorded between dolphin and man.
