“at the Dolphin Research Center”

The star quality of Flipper, a bottlenose dolphin, made a hit of the 1960s TV show that bore its name. Flipper, to the surprise of many fans, was originally played by a female dolphin named Mitzi, which was trained at Santini's Porpoise School. Mitzi could knock a prop gun out of a villain's hand with a well-timed leap, or chatter loudly when danger lurked. Mitzi died in 1972, and the porpoise school became the Dolphin Research Center, a serious-minded facility devoted to education and public awareness. But the first stop on its tour is always the statue that marks the grave of the most famous dolphin in history.

We watch "Flipper" on Hulu and my girls (8&10) wanted to stop. I asked several of the attendants of the Dolphin Research Center "where is Flipper's grave?" NONE knew! I know they were only in their twenties at most but seriously. It ended up being more fun looking for it on our own - the discovery of the simple grave did not take long. A very cool place if you like dolphins, plan to stay and swim with them. The center has attendants who work with them and will let you get in the pools with them too. Pretty cool.
