Devoted Dads at Dolphin Discovery
He teaches you how to ride a bike, throw a ball, fix just about anything with duct tape, how to tie a tie. He is your first dance partner, your protector, your hero, he can do anything. He is Daddy and he deserves to be celebrated!
This month, Dolphin Discovery honors fathers everywhere with a special dolphin swim deal! With the purchase of one Royal Swim program, the same program for dad is only $1 USD! Buy your interactive dolphin program in June and swim anytime. The Royal Swim is the perfect gift for dad, an exciting day meeting the most incredible creatures of the sea. This program will get his heart racing and his adrenaline pumping as he dances with a dolphin, kisses, hugs and finds himself propelled through the water under dolphin power! Share a very special day with dad and the whole family at any of our Dolphin Discovery locations.
Mexico is a country known for its devotion to the family, and no family member is more revered than “Mama”. Every year on May 10th the entire country pays homage to matriarchs with the annual “Dia de las Madres” or “Mother’s Day” celebration. Young children create cards and gifts and adults bring flowers and made to their mothers very special dinners and parties. The traditional song “Las Mañanitas” is sung, often as a serenade outside of mother’s house with mariachis for accompaniment. “Mama” is the center of attention and the whole family shows her their appreciation on this very special day. Mothers have been honoured throughout the ages around the world, but the first official “Dia de las Madres” in Mexico wasn’t celebrated until May 10th in 1922, as a result of the petitions by Rafael Alducin Bedolla, founder of the newspaper “Excelsior”. We thank him for bringing us such a special day and we thank moms everywhere for all that they do!
Dolphin Discovery would like to show moms just how special they are by offering a 20% discount to mothers on all our swim with dolphins programs in all our locations for the entire month of May! Guests swimming with their mom get an additional 10% off their own swims too! Pamper your mom to an experience she’ll never forget, book now! Lots of love to moms everywhere from all our dolphins and staff!
