After pickup from your selected location in Orlando, you’ll head to Florida’s Gulf Coast for a full day of excitement. During the 90-minute ride, your tour guide will provide a brief introduction to everything you’ll find in Clearwater Beach. Upon arrival, you’ll have 1-2 hours of free time to explore the beach before heading to Clearwater Marine Aquarium.

Inside the Aquarium, hear the inspirational life story of Winter the Dolphin from the hit movie Dolphin Tale. See Atlantic bottlenose dolphins, sea turtles, river otters, stingrays, sharks, and meet other rehabilitated marine animals. Feed a stingray, watch a dolphin show, and have your photo taken with a bottlenose dolphin. You can also take a behind-the-scenes tour of the animal hospital and visit the marine theater to watch footage of the aquarium’s team rescuing and treating injured animals.

You won’t want to miss hearing about the legacy and life story of Winter, the world-famous dolphin whose story inspired the hit movie Dolphin Tale. After losing her tail in a crab trap, she was rescued by the Clearwater Marine Aquarium and fitted with a prosthetic tail. Winter’s incredible story has been seen on Oprah, NBC’s The Today Show, ABC’s Good Morning America, and others.

After your trip to the Aquarium, take a complimentary ride on the Jolly Trolley to Clearwater’s historic downtown district where Winter’s Dolphin Tale Adventure is located. This fun and educational exhibit brings 3D to the next level as it takes you inside the movie for a completely unique experience. Here, you’ll find rebuilt scenes from the movie, life-size images, and real props used onset in Dolphin Tale.

In your free time, take a stroll down Clearwater Beach’s famous Pier 60, browse local souvenir shops for a t-shirt or postcard, or simply relax with your toes in the soft, white sand. Explore the area, bask on the beach, swim, or partake in various watersports activities like jet skiing, parasailing, and more. There’s a lot to see and do! Beach umbrellas, chairs, snorkeling gear, and other water sports equipment can be rented from spots all along the beach.

To get the most from your trip, upgrade to include lunch at Crabby’s Dockside! You’ll receive a gift card voucher from your tour guide (valued at $20/Adult and $10/Child) that can be redeemed for any item on the menu. Guests will be responsible for any charges above the value of their gift card.
