Meet Your Area Dolphins

The Research Team on board the Dolphin Explorer is happy to share information about your area dolphins with the Coastal Breeze News readers. Each edition an individual will be profiled so that you, too, might get to know them. Dolphins can be identified by the nicks and marks on their dorsal fins.

Meet Coco

Coco is one of our younger dolphins, known as sub-adults. Dolphins in this age bracket are old enough to be on their own, but are not yet fully grown or fully mature.

Coco’s mom is Nibbles, and she is one of the most productive females in the area having a new calf every three to four years. Some of Coco’s companions are Skipper, Kaya, Nibbles and Double Dip.

This sub-adult can be found mostly in the Intercoastal and the Marco River.
