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.

Before you purchase your tickets to the aquarium, you need to know that this is a facility that rescues and rehabs. It is not there to entertain you, and you won't find any amusement rides. But you will be educated on how they care for injured or sick sea life creatures. My family enjoyed our visit and the things we learned. The grandkids really were excited to see Winter and Hope!

Everyone there is very helpful. Not a lot in the way of food if hungry but did have a small snack area so you might take a cooler but other than that we had a great time.

Park at the Dolphin Tale experience instead of the aquarium. The parking and traffic is much better. You can take a nice boat ride or trolly to the aquarium included in the price.

It was very crowded on Saturday. I would try to visit during the week if that were an option.

Sign up before hand for the dolphin / animal interactions. They sell out early.

From Our Editors

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.
