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.

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.
