Meet Mateo

Mateo was a patient dolphin who loved to spend time with the children in the water. He was always looking for the best way to support. “He always got your back” as he loved to swim around with you during a belly ride.

Unfortunately Mateo passed away in October 2011 but his presence will remain within his offspring Kanoa for many more years to come as well through all the beautiful memories Mateo created not only for CDTC but for all the families that had the pleasure to meet him.
