I visited the Clearwater Marine Aquarium with my family a couple of years ago and we had a really fun visit! I had recently watched the movie Dolphin Tale (and really liked it), so I was stoked to see Winter the Dolphin up close and personal! Seeing her was my favorite part of the trip! Her trainers showed everyone how they care for her, and then she performed all of the amazing tricks and stunts she can do!
There are also parts of the aquarium that are sectioned off from where Dolphin Tale was filmed! It was so cool! (I got to walk on a path that Morgan Freeman walked on, eeep!) This honestly made me feel like I was in Hollywood!
There were other sea creatures to observe here too, but none of them were as exciting as seeing Winter and seeing the movie set(s). Additionally, there is a great gift shop here that sells cheap souvenirs!!
Overall, I enjoyed my trip to this aquarium! However, it is not the type of place I would visit again and again- once or twice is enough! And if you have young kids, I highly suggest bringing them here!
Once again, the Clearwater Marine Aquarium is great!
