Good family visit. It's a good idea to get there before noon--and pack a lunch. You can come and go as you please-so eat lunch at car and go explore some more
Well we had heard all about this aquarium although I never saw those movies. It was fun to check out an aquarium since I haven't done that in forever. I just felt like there wasn't a whole lot to see.. A few big exhibits and some smaller tanks. I was at the Monterey aquarium in San Fran about 8 years ago maybe nothing compares. Also expensive!!!
After seeing the movie Dolphin Tale, we knew we had to visit! We spent the day in Clearwater (we stayed in Orlando area.) The aquarium was fantastic, but be prepared for a crowd, though it didn't take long to get in. Very informative, fun to watch all the marine life and especially Winter! Something my kids will always remember - I'm glad we took the time.

Went for a visit to the Aguarium which is basically a marine hospital for injured animals. There was not a lot of animals present as after recuperation they get released back to the wild. The most famous resident is Winter the dolphin who has had an artificial tail fitted and the film Winters Tale was all about her. Various talks and feeding times are worth seeing. Very interesting place to visit.
