Home to “Dolphin Tale” star, Winter—a rescued dolphin that uses a prosthetic tail–Clearwater Marine Aquarium is a perfect family-friendly attraction to visit in sunny Clearwater, Florida. The aquarium offers exciting Sea Life Safari cruises and interaction programs, and is dedicated to preserving marine life, having rescued a number of dolphins, sea turtles, and other sea creatures since 1982.

First, grab coupons at local shops -- we got kids in free with our adult tickets and saved $20 a piece. Price includes the aquarium in the beach area (with Winter!) and also ferry ride across Mandalay Bay to Clearwater center for walk through sets and props from Dolphin Tale. We also fed stingrays for $5, and they had neat packages (trainer for a day, meet the dolphins) for more $$. All the animals are recue/rehab, so your money goes right to the sea creatures. Loved it.

Not a whole lot to see here. Not quite sure if it was worth the price of admission. We decided not to go to the second site. It wasn't bad, just not great.
This was my sons 3rd trip here! He loves winter and hope! The staff is super friendly and helpful with info on the animals! They really do care about helping! Will be back next year!
Loved seeing Winter from Dolphin Tail. My 9 year old was really interested in watching Hope and Winter get enrichment and listening to the care takers. Loved seeing the anima care facilities. The Sea Safari was also really fun for young kids. We saw dolphins too!! Sea shell island was ok. Not the best shells and it was small with ma y private boats/parties docked their too.
