Me and a couple other friends were down in Tampa for a beach trip during the week of May 20th and decided to visit this aquarium on our trip. Admission was $22 which is reasonable. First of all this is not a traditional aquarium that...More
We appreciate your visit, Ivar, and your support of our work and mission at Clearwater Marine Aquarium! Our current building is a wastewater treatment plant that we've occupied since the 1970s, and we have certainly outgrown the space it affords us. At present, we're working...More
Was very small. My daughter wanted to see winter so we went. She was disappointed because winter was in a back tank and we could barely she her. We got to see hope perform for about 10 minutes. We loved the picture that they took...More
We're sorry to see that Clearwater Marine Aquarium didn't quite live up to your expectations. Our facility is a converted wastewater treatment plant that we've occupied since the 1970s, and while it has served us well, we recognize that its layout does pose some limitations....More
No Winter that I could see. -Empty tanks all over and billboards for info .Save your money for another attraction, this was not worth it. Too hot and too crowed and collection boxes for donations all over the place. This place needs to offer way...More

Amazing, must do experience for families to see and experience. I've loved dolphins as long as I can remember and my son has loved it since seeing both Dolphin Tale films, so it was fantastic to see the animals first hand and see all of...More
We're so pleased that you enjoyed your visit to Clearwater Marine Aquarium! We appreciate you supporting our work and mission more than we can say.
We were fortunate to have found this marine animal rehabilitation facility prior to its fame due to the "Dolphin Tale" movie franchise. At that time, you were able to get a more intimate interaction with the animals they serve. Now, it is elbow to elbow...More
We appreciate your visit to Clearwater Marine Aquarium, and your feedback. It is certainly true that interest in our work and mission has grown tremendously, resulting in more visitors to our facility than ever before. Thanks to this increased interest (and the proceeds from admission,...More
I think what everyone should know about this aquarium is that it is more of a rescue for sea animals. If you're looking for lots of large tanks of fish and varieties they only have 1 large tank stocked with sharks, turtles and fish. The...More
