Clearwater Marine Aquarium in Clearwater Florida

Published on 01/21/21: Apparently, this first picture illustrates why it’s “okay” if our adventures leave mom at home to jam out to 80’s tunes and read. This was her today. 🙃 Ha. But I digress. Onto the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.

Home to Winter the Dolphin!

Clearwater Marine Aquarium is home to Winter, the now famous rescued dolphin with a prosthetic tail. Her story was even made into a very popular movie, Dolphin Tale! Colt loves the movie and always enjoys seeing Winter in person. We specifically chose today however because this weekend is “ReptilePalooza” at the aquarium, with the upper level full of interesting creatures.

Additionally, we wanted to check out their recent upgrades! We were very surprised at how far they took the advancements. Many additional areas, much larger aquarium tanks, large restaurant/diner, and much more!


The price was around $29/adult and $25 for Colt at the time of posting. A bit more than I recall, however the aquarium is a non-profit, with proceeds going to help their cause in preserving our environment. So all good.

One more post coming with additional details and video to give you a better idea of what Clearwater Marine Aquarium has to offer! We are lucky to have Winter and crew just 30-40 minutes away from St Pete.

Know one of the best parts about adventures in our area? You’ll most likely be near one of the numerous beaches, allowing for some time in the sand, live music, and tropical drink. In this case, Clearwater Beach is just a couple minutes from the aquarium, thus our pitstop today.

An interesting fact about Mike is that he grew up on an avocado farm with over 15 varieties, some of which you can find in our local Publix/Winn Dixie as his dad still farms the same farm at 87 years old!
