Gratitude Page

We would like to thank all our sponsors and our ‘back up’ team who share our vision of making the joy, magic and therapeutic qualities of meeting wild dolphins accessible for anyone on the planet through Virtual Reality. They have supported the Dolphin Swim Club generously in so many ways, by donating their time, talents, expertise or money.

Thank you all! You are awesome.
