Clearwater Marine Aquarium’s admission includes access to our main facility and Winter’s Dolphin Tale Adventure, a facility of interactive exhibits, movie props, kids activities and expanded retail located in downtown Clearwater.

Clearwater Marine Aquarium provides the highest standards of healthcare and rehabilitation with the ultimate objective of release.  Not all animals, however, can be released.  Their injuries may be too severe and may limit their ability to function and survive in the wild.

National Marine Fisheries Service consults with CMA to determine if a cetacean can be released or must be provided long term resident care.  Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission regulates the North American river otters and sea turtles.

CMA is also home to many other friends you will be able to visit up close and personal including Sea Turtles, Otters, Sharks, Pelicans, Stingrays and many other types of marine animals.
