Grand Bahama Island - Way of the Dolphin, the sequel to Eye of the Dolphin (shot in 2005 in Grand Bahama Island) is now in its final days of shooting.

The first film, Eye of the Dolphin was about 14-year-old Alyssa who travels to The Bahamas to meet her estranged father, Hawk who is a dolphin trainer.  Alyssa discovers she shares her father's gift for communicating with dolphins, leading to a bond with one wild dolphin. Way of the Dolphin examines the research and development of Dolphins, to learn their language and how they can assist mankind in better understanding the marine environment.

In Way of the Dolphin, Alyssa, (now played by Caitlin Wachs) is older and her adventures continue...
