My family was keen to visit the Aquarium after seeing the movie and we were so thankful to see that is really just a working Animal Rescue facility. The staff were professional, and could answer any question at all. They were kind, helpful and definitely into their work. A great facility that hasn't turned all Hollywood with glitz and glam. Refreshing to see and I hope they stay true to their mandate-- helping marine animals, not maximizing profits which is what we saw with Disney. Good Work CMA!!

My mom, two daughters (ages 7&8), and I had a fun day visiting Winter and learning about the animals and work they do at the hospital. Once we took the tour our visit became more engaging and fun. Lou was a fantastic guide who involved everyone in his presentation. I highly recommend paying the extra and taking the time. The boat ride was quite fun too. The captain was also a good tour guide.

This is a small aquarium, but it is quite dear to our hearts. The focus is on ecology, marine rescue and rehabilitation. The staff our friendly and very informative. This is a great family destination. We enjoyed a number of hands on exhibits, but above all the emphasis on how important it is that we all care for our environment! My children are young adults now (sorry for the oxymoron). I think this would be an ideal place for families with young children as well.

The admission price is high, but this place is well worth supporting. The goal here is to share knowledge about oceans and to support rehab and rescue of endangered marine life. The staff is extremely knowledgable making this a first rate experience for kids and curious adults.

We visited the location where Winter the lead dolphin in Dolphin's Tale lives and paints and performs. My grandson found the dolphin and the other sea creatures there impressive. We all enjoyed seeing the dolphins up so close.
