You’ll be picked up from your hotel in the morning and taken to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, just 1.5 hours from Orlando. Dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and release of injured marine animals, this fun and educational attraction offers a variety of activities for the whole family.
See Atlantic bottlenose dolphins, sea turtles, river otters, stingrays and sharks. Feed a stingray, watch a dolphin show, and have your photo taken with a dolphin. You can also take a behind-the-scenes tour of the animal hospital and visit the theater to watch footage of the aquarium's team rescuing and treating injured animals.
You won’t want to miss Winter, the world-famous dolphin whose story inspired the hit movie Dolphin Tale. After losing her tail in a crab trap, she was rescued and fitted with a prosthetic tail. Now she’s healthy and swimming freely! Take a journey inside the movie with re-built scenes, movie images and actual props used in the film. Winter’s incredible story has also been seen on Oprah, NBC's The Today Show, ABC’s Good Morning America and others.
After your time at the aquarium, enjoy free time for lunch (included) and some beach time. You’ll then be taken back to your Orlando hotel.
