Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Clearwater Fl.
Home of Winter from the movie Dolphin Tale
If your looking for a memorable experience the Clearwater Marine Aquarium is the place to visit. Opened in 1972 at its current location on Clearwater Beach, a former water treatment plant who’s large tanks were well suited for rehabilitation operations. Numerous forms of marine life reside at the aquarium, some temporarily until they can be released, while others have serious injuries which do not permit their return to the wild, and thus become permanent residents.
Clearwater Marine Aquarium’s most famous resident is “Winter” a bottlenose dolphin who was rescued in December 2005 after having her tail caught in a crab trap. Her injuries caused the loss of her tail, and the aquarium fitted her with a prosthetic tail which brought worldwide attention to the facility. Winter was the star of the 2011 movie Dolphin Tale that brought tears of joy to the driest of eyes and was an inspiration to people around the world.
