Dean Bernal visited Turks & Caicos Islands for the first time in 1981 and settled in The Turks & Caicos Islands in 1986. Asan avid ocean swimmer Dean came across three small young dolphins on his first ocean swim. One of these dolphins - who Dean called JoJo - started to follow him on his daily swims and soon became Dean’s best friend. Dolphins like JoJo grow to eight feet long, weigh about 250 pounds, and are thought to live to forty to fifty years or so. JoJo has a female mate and together they have a calf known as MoJo. Dean does not swim with Jojo or live on the island anymore.
