Visit: Clearwater Marine Aquarium, 249 Windward Passage, Clearwater, FL 33767-2244
Clearwater Marine Aquarium is not a typical aquarium, for this nonprofit rescue facility is dedicated to the rehabilitation and release of marine animals. It’s a unique place where visitors can learn about the dozens of resident and rehabbing animals. In the Winter Zone, see Winter and Hope, the famous rescued Atlantic Bottlenose dolphins. Watch the trainers interact with them during feeding and enrichment sessions, and see Winter using her prosthetic tail. This was a main filming area for the Dolphin Tale movies. Afterwards, head to Shipwreck Alley, which is an underwater viewing tunnel that gives a different look at the dolphin pools.
At the Animal Hospital area, see the work that the Clearwater Marine Aquarium on-staff medical professionals do, which ranges from routine physicals of resident otters to emergency procedures on injured sea turtles. See where the volunteers and staff prepare food for the animals, and discover the charting systems and housing of sea turtles deemed candidates for release back into the wild once their rehabilitation is complete.
At Stingray Beach, discover the shallow pool of Cownose and Southern stingrays, and hear educational presentations while delicately touching their wings as they swim by.
See some of the rescued sea turtles with incredible stories of survival, including Harold who played Mavis in Dolphin Tale 2, as they swim throughout their habitat in Mavis's Rescue Hideaway. Learn about the care that is provided to them during daily presentations from the staff.
Make sure to visit Otter Oasis to see the perfect haven for the rescued North American River Otters. Even with physical limitations, these otters are very active and love their oasis.
