This is a great place for kids to see some marine life up close. It's got the famous dolphins Winter and Hope. A good place to go while visiting Clearwater.

Really enjoyed seeing Winter and Hope. The kids have been talking about this for two months, and they were not disappointed! Took us about three hours to see everything. Fernando really helped us out as we were leaving with some food suggestions.
