Dolphin Therapy

by michaelayne Online Now Jul 26, 2006 at 1:14 AM

We are thinking of Dolphin Therapy for our daughter. There are so many to choose from but we have narrowed the choice down to Florida. Does anyone know of the Island Dolphin Care? Any experience? We know dophin therapy is not magic cure. We are taking it as a holiday and hoping the little one will have a great time with the dolphins. We found Dolphin human therapy on web as well. Any idean which one is the best? Also need some advice on accomodations? We looked at trip advisors but it is quite different posting. We quite like Ocean Pointe suites but some posting at Trip advisors said it was quite dirty an the pool wasn't nice. The most important thing to us is cleaniness . Thanks for any suggestion.

    here is the place which our south florida paper wrote about and recommended.
    they do have child therapy.
    dolphinscove.com/dolphin-hum...
    it is on key largo.
    their dolphins stayed even when they had a chance to swim out during the flooding from hurricance last october.
    i like that it is recommended and also that the dolphins are happy there :)

    Thanks for all the replies. We now narrowed down to Island Dolphin Care or the Dolphin Cove. We are not sure whether we can afford Dolphin Cove because it is a 2 week programme. We can do 1 week programme at Island Dolphin Care.

    Thanks again. We are getting so excited ................
