This is not your typical Marine Aquarium. The animals here have all been rescued and for various reasons, are unable to be returned to the wild. There aren't as many animals as you might see at some aquariums, but the entry fee is reasonable and...More

This was a perfect choice when we were in Clearwater and the weather wasn’t cooperating for a beach day! The kids loved it and loved that they got to see Winter the dolphin in the movie The Dolphins Tale!
