Clearwater Marine Aquarium

Clearwater Marine Aquarium is a non-profit. It is dedicated to marine life rescue, rehabilitation and release, and environmental education. The aquarium is motivated towards preserving the environment. In addition, they provide the most advanced and effective care to ensure the opportunity to return sick or injured animals to their homes. Therefore, it is a great place to visit and learn more about marine life, especially for children.


Clearwater Marine Aquarium offers general admission tickets, holiday tickets, and admission packages. Each package includes either sea life safaris, dolphin adventures, or discounts. You can invest in animal feeding opportunities and dolphin or shark care experiences. You can even get a picture with one of the dolphins and otters.

Meet the Animals

The aquarium is home to many marine animals including dolphins, sea turtles, river otters, stingrays and nurse sharks. Not to mention, Winter, the dolphin who lost her tail and learned to swim with a prosthetic one, lives in the waters of the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. The movie Dolphin Tale, starring Morgan Freeman, Harry Connick Jr., and Ashley Judd, recounts her life story.
