Clearwater Marine Aquarium (CMA) is a unique working hospital that rescues, rehabilitates and releases marine animals. Our most notable resident is Winter, a dolphin whose story of survival after losing her tail was told in the 2011 hit movie Dolphin Tale. The sequel, Dolphin Tale 2, features the real-life story of Hope, another dolphin residing at CMA. Meet our resident dolphins, sea turtles, pelicans, otters, sharks and sting rays, explore touch tanks, discover educational exhibits and explore the waters on an interactive boat safari. Take a trolley or boat shuttle to nearby Winter’s Dolphin Tale Adventure to discover a museum of actual movie sets and props, and get blown away through the Hurricane Experience exhibit.
