“Winter the dolphin!”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Fun for all ages, well worth the price to get in, 16.00 for seniors, 18.00 for adults, or close to that price as far as I remember. Rufus the pelican was there too! Great, educational, you can even touch a stingray.. They rescue marine animals, turtles, sharks, dolphins, I don't want to give it away, so you gotta go!

“wonderful non profit rescue aquarium”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

They have been rescuing sea mammals since 1987. They truly care about rehabilitating the animals and the health of the waters in the bay. They have dedicated staff and volunteers that work hard every day. They truly deserve your money. It is too bad that it took a movie to put them in the spotlight. I am sure they were a great organization long before that.

“My son had a great time!”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

My son likes animals and really enjoyed watching Winter. We also took the boat tour to the other area -- it was nice, but not as interesting as the primary area. He especially liked petting sting rays in a tank. He must have stood there for 45 minutes!

“Kids loved seeing all of the rescued animals but Winter was the highlight.”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

The kids loved learning that the Marine Aquarium was all about rescue, rehab, and release whenever possible. Of course, the famous, Winter the dolphin was the highlight of the trip but all of the performing dolphins, the otters, the turtles, etc. were interesting as well. It was fun to see all of the props used in the movie as well when taking the shuttle over to the other exhibit all about Winter and the Dolphin Tale movie.
