Find out what happens when a dolphin named Tony searches for his wonderful son, Joe, after years of separation! Gaile Harpan and Pete DiMarcello are avid beach walkers and dolphin seekers. The idea for the Dolphin Tale came to them as they walked along the shores of the Gulf of Mexico. Abbigaile is Ms. Harpan's granddaughter and it was Mr. DiMarcello's idea to feature her in this tale.
