If you are visiting Clearwater this is a very interesting place to go. The big tip here is to go during the week. We saw them setting up ropes for the weekend crowd and couldn't believe how lucky we were to have chosen a weekday afternoon. My husband and I have seen the first movie so we knew what the... More

I took my family to the clearwater marine aquarium today. For $21.95 per person we received an experience that I can only describe as pathetic. We spent less than an hour at the aquarium. I said something to someone at the park and their response was we are under construction. They did not even have an elevator that we could... More

My wife and I enjoyed our visit to the Aquarium. We saw Winter and Hope and heard about their story. We interacted with the staff and they were cheerful and very knowledgeable.

I'm so glad that I finally was able to visit this informative gem in Clearwater. I'm from Orlando which is theme park central, so it was so refreshing to find that this place is a real hospital that works to rescue, rehabilitate, and then release injured sea animals. I went on a week day and was informed by an employee... More

This is a great place to go. Very educational for people of all ages. A smaller scale aquarium, but worth it.

If you keep in mind its not pretty, and well kept, and organized..lol It is a rescue center first and foremost. It has some amazing, and a little sad lovely creatures that they have saved from the brink. It is soooo neat to see them take care of the animals, dolphins, turtles, stingrays, otters, pelicans, and sharks. Had a great... More

Yes, I had to go see Winter when we were in Tampa. It is sad that she will never be able to be released back to the ocean but I think the staff at CMA does it's best to work with her and keep her as happy as possible. The CMA does so much good for the marine life in... More

Only wish I have is that they would have a docent tour... Would have been glad to pay extra for it! Took a group of senior citizens. It was a bit overwheing and confusing! We REALLY enjoyed the 'shuttle' boat ride to second aquarium location though!!!
