Kanoa is named after a surfing beach on the North Coast of Curacao, "Playa Kanoa".
He is the son of Mateo, a founding member of the CDTC dolphin team, and has a lot of his father's physical characteristics - particularly his large, beautiful eyes.
He is incredibly outgoing and has spent his entire childhood perfecting his interactions with the center's children. He is one of the more "chatty" dolphins, vocalizing to his children and trainers throughout the day.
Small, slim body, big round eyes and wide face
