Clearwater Marine Aquarium
In December of 2005, an orphaned bottlenose dolphin was rescued after being caught in a crab trap. She was brought to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium's rehabilitation center, where the team worked constantly to bring the dolphin, now named Winter, back to health. Soon, for the first time in her adult life, Winter swam like a true dolphin. It was a story of courage and heart worthy of Hollywood—in fact, Winter starred as herself in 2011's Dolphin Tale, a cinematic recreation of her life that reached #1 at the box office.
Today, Winter lives at Clearwater Marine Aquarium with her bottlenose friend Hope, who starred with her in Dolphin Tale 2. Here, visitors can watch them swim and play, along with many more animals who got a second chance thanks to the aquarium's rehabilitation team. Visitors can meet these inspirational animals, witness the team in action, and support the effort to save marine animals.

“Great place, clean, well-organized, and very informative. Our tour guide was great and our kids (11 y/o)loved her story telling and patience. Wear comfortable shoes. Also, if you have small kids (under 10 y/o), ask if they have any tours available for your date/time. Their website did not show any tours available for younger children the day we visited, so we left our youngers girls (3 and 5 y/o) with grandma and grandpa, but once we arrived we noticed they had a tour going on for smaller kids. Wish we had called and confirmed! ”

“It's not conducive to strollers. Look around at things to do. This was our second time and we were introduced to so many areas of the aquarium that we missed the last time. Also, if you can get on the website and know a head of time what it is you want to see it will make it easier. It's not big by any means but they are doing so much that there is hustle and bustle all around. ”
“Call ahead and check hours.”
