General Note

  • Accompanying note: "Some of the hundreds of visitors are shown gathered on the top deck to watch the porpoises leap high out of the water to take food from the hand of the feeding attendant. Porpoises, being air-breathing mammals consequently have to come to the surface to breathe and some times in their eagerness to be fed will leap as high as 8 to 9 feet clear of the water. Porpoises have been unofficially clocked at speeds up to 40 miles an hour."
  • Marineland opened on June 23, 1938 as Marine Studios. Billed as the World's First Oceanarium.
