Stranding Deck

The stranding deck is currently home to our only male resident Atlantic bottlenose dolphin, Nicholas. When Nicholas was only 6 months old his mother, Noel stranded due to a respiratory infection and he was so young, he followed her onto the beach and became stranded. They both suffered from severe sunburns, and Nicholas' mother passed away. Nicholas did not have enough time to learn the hunting skills needed to survive on his own in the wild and became one of our permanent residents. He is a very playful dolphin who loves toys. Watch out when visiting Dolphin Terrace though, Nicholas is known to make a pretty big splash.

The stranding deck was built as a place to accept newly rescued animals for immediate care and quarantine from our resident animals. There are several state of the art design elements that make these pools ideal places for caring for sick and injured dolphins and small whales. Nicholas is currently residing there as Dolphin Terrace is under construction.
