This is a fantastic spot on the bay side of Grassy Key, (Mile Marker 59) – have stopped there twice in the past few months. This is a facility they used to film the movie and TV series “Flipper”.
These folks take in dolphins, manatees and seals that are sick or have been injured and keep them for the rest of their lives. There are a number of adult dolphins, adolescents and even a baby now and then.
