Magical Memories

Connect with the previous experiences of others

Discover how a short journey over water changed these lives forever. There are special energies at work here, Dolphin Energies, if you will, that are inviting you to come. To reflect on what it means to be human, and to harmonize with a place where humans are mostly a curious guest to the intelligent beings that still call this paradise, "Home". Enter the playground of the dolphins!

Herein, you will find excerpts from the log books, and other news stories and magazine articles written about Capt. Victoria's longstanding and loving stewardship of these unique National Treasures of Living Coral Reefs, Marine Protected Areas, and two National Wildlife Refuges.

She guides people out to the mangroves - God's jungle gym - to experience birds, fish, and other wildlife at play in their natural habitat. Her commitment to teach people about how humanity has affected these birds and other wild creatures has affected many people in many different ways. Because here, nature and spirituality become ONE, and magical healing and transformations take place. Dancing Water Spirits Retreats.



Delanie Kirwin, 16 yrs old, had to write a class assignment and I was chosen. I don't have words for the feelings that this writing has brought up for me except to say " It feels like I just graduated"!! Here is what she wrote and her Dad, Dave Kirwin, said she got an A. I feel like I received the A.
