Go beyond a typical aquarium experience and immerse yourself in the world of marine life rescue at Clearwater Marine Aquarium (CMA). This nonprofit is famous for its most notable resident, Winter the dolphin - star and inspiration of the popular Dolphin Tale movies. Step into the actual filming locations from where these Hollywood films where produced. Explore the working animal hospital. See the CMA team conduct enrichment and daily care of Winter and other rescued dolphins, sea turtles, river otters, sharks and more. Be inspired by fun, educational presentations and exhibits about CMA's ongoing work of conservation, rescue, rehabilitation and release.
Start your experience at the Winter’s Dolphin Tale Adventure location in downtown Clearwater – an interactive movie set museum that also features a hurricane experience exhibit, interactive games, and more. From there, hop aboard a complimentary trolley or boat shuttle over to the main attraction of CMA.  All of this is included with the purchase of a general admission ticket.
