I had not seen this movie but enjoy aquariums. This facility is a rescue and rehab for sea life. You are able to tour their hospital wing and see some current rehab projects. Winter's story was interesting and it was great to see the animal doing well. The facility has lots of props and sets and movie location spots from the movies. Parking on site for reasonable cost. Touch tanks filled with local rays. We had tickets through city pass and was worth the drive from Tampa.

Love this place. For anyone who is a fan of the Dolphin Take movies it's a must see. There are not a lot of frills...it's a working animal rehab facility.
