Day 1 Clearwater Marine Aquarium
Come explore our unique nonprofit hospital dedicated to the rescue, rehab and release of marine animals. See our mission in action as you discover our rehab and surgical areas and get up-close inspiration from the stories of our resident animals, including Winter the dolphin, who swims with a prosthetic tail.
Feed our sting rays, sharks and pelicans, or cruise on a interactive boat safari. Hop aboard a complimentary boat or trolley shuttle to nearby Winter's Dolphin Tale Adventure, where you'll discover a museum of rebuilt sets and props from the Dolphin Tale movies and walk through our Hurricane Experience exhibit.
You won't want to miss Winter, the world-famous dolphin whose story inspired the hit movie Dolphin Tale. After losing her tail in a crab trap, she was rescued and fitted with a prosthetic tail. Now she's healthy and swimming freely! Take a journey inside the movie with re-built scenes, movie images and actual props used in the film. Winter's incredible story has also been seen on Oprah, NBC's The Today Show, ABC's Good Morning America, and others.
All this and much more await you at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium!
