Joey Learns About Marine Life

Joey wished to go to Atlantis Resort and be a marine biologist

“ It was the trip of a lifetime. ”

Thank You Subaru

Joey has always felt a connection to marine life. He recognizes their determined spirit and joy for life because of his own experiences. His interest began when he viewed a movie in which a dolphin manages to survive an injury.

“I’m inspired by Winter the dolphin because she’s amazing and because she beat all the odds and lived,” Joey said. 

The dolphin’s journey from hardship to health inspired Joey’s wish to travel to the Atlantis Resort and learn how to care for marine life. Living with a seizure disorder, Joey’s experience has given him a compassion for providing care.

Joey and his family arrived in the Bahamas, where a limo picked them up as the first in a series of surprises. They were given certificates for exclusive activities that would take them on marine adventures and introduce them to aquatic animals.

They visited the Dolphin Cay and took to the water to meet animals with professional trainers. Joey was able to feed seals, swim with rays and learn how to interact with his favorite sea creatures.
