Meet Copan

Copan, named after Copán which is an archaeological site of the Maya civilization located in the Copán Department of western Honduras.

Copan was the patriarch, the true king of the dolphin society within the lagoons of Dolphin Academy. He was the alpha, dominant male and the females adored him. Being Copan’s girlfriend meant being the queen of the lagoon. Copan was fearless, adventurous, brave and had some of the most amazing aerial displays seen anywhere in the world. It is easy to see why the lady dolphins found him to be such a desirable companion.

He was one of the dolphins participating in the Open Water Program. He was also very famous, played in the Flipper movie and featured on the cover of the ‘dolfijn fm’ magazine.

Unfortunately Copan passed away in August 2012 but his presence will remain within his offspring for many more years to come and also through all the beautiful memories Copan created not only for Dolphin Academy but for all the visitors that had the pleasure to meet him.
