Our Family Is Planning To Visit The Dolphins

November 27, 2016 0 By Lead Mama

We Are Planning A Trip To Miami

– I See Dolphins In Sight

We are heading to Florida Keys to watch the dolphins frolic at The Dolphin Research Center!  We’re going to tap into our love for marine nature by bringing the boys to see dolphins and sea lions up close.

I have always wanted to do this since a little girl. Now I know why it was a good thing to wait for this type of trip. I actually get to do it with my Family!




Who Is The Dolphin Research Center

A world-renowned nonprofit marine mammal education and research facility, Dolphin Research Center welcomes families daily to learn about their animal family. Educational narrated behavior sessions take place about every half an hour and inspire kids of all ages to care more deeply for marine mammals and the environment. They also offer swims with the dolphins and other hands-on programs.


We can’t wait to create great family vacation memories

and learn all about these amazing animals!

Dolphin Research Center features experiential education at its best. Flukes and flippers bring science and other subjects alive!

In addition to individual families and home-schoolers, DRC welcomes field trips and overnight experiences for groups who are sure to have a fintastic time learning from their marine mammal enthusiasts and flippered family members.

Watch Some Dolphin Adventures through their webcam

Those who can’t visit in person are welcome to indulge their curiosity in a distance learning program that brings the dolphins into their classroom or home. Whether presented in person or via the internet, all curriculum is written to compliment your lesson plan and/or meet national and state standards. No matter how you incorporate dolphins into your lesson plan, you’re bound to inspire conservation and conversation.

Planning The Trip To The Dolphin Research Center

We aren’t just going to the Dolphin Research Center to giggle at the dolphins, we will also be learning as well. I will be printing out some Dolphin Lap-book and Marine Life Activities so the boys can learn about the Dolphins and marine life in real time. We will also be making some cool crafts too. 

We are traveling to various places around Florida to show you that Yes, #familyfriendlyflorida is a great place to bring the family too. We are also showing you that Yes, larger families can go on trips and vacations! With great planning and ample preparation time, as a large family, we can enjoy all kinds of places around Florida, that are both affordable and family friendly. 

I created the series #familyfriendlyflorida to help you enjoy vacations and trips with your family no matter what size you are. I will show you all the places we are going to and how it all went down. Starting with the planning and preparations right on through until we land back in our own beds at home. 

Have you been to the Dolphin Research Center? What was your experience? What should we be planning for? 

We are staying overnight because it is a few hours drive for us. So we plan to be at the research center all day, head to the hotel to sleep and refresh and spend a little time taking in the scenery before heading back home. I will keep you updated on our plan and preparation for this fun family trip. I will be creating a family trip planner soon too.
