A visit to Clearwater Marine Aquarium is a must-do for the whole family. This is not your typical aquarium. Our marine life rescue center is home to Winter the dolphin, star and inspiration of the hit movies Dolphin Tale and Dolphin Tale 2, both filmed on location. Come be inspired and educated by our ongoing work of rescue, rehabilitation and release.
Clearwater Marine Aquarium provides the highest standards of healthcare and rehabilitation with the ultimate objective of release. Not all animals, however, can be released. Their injuries may be too severe and may limit their ability to function and survive in the wild.
