  • The water in the lagoon is cooled in the summer and warmed in the winter, keeping the dolphins and visitors a comfortable 75-80 degrees all year long.
  • Porpoises and other marine mammals actually live adjacent to the Sonoran Desert about 50 miles from Arizona in the Sea of Cortez

  • Dolphins are provided the highest quality of food, enriching habitat, and daily care and husbandry training by a team of professional behaviorists and water quality experts, lead by a full-time marine mammal veterinarian.
