This summer’s theme is “Family is Forever.” Come and meet our newest family members: PJ the Dolphin, Boomer the North American River Otter, along with Daphne and Snorkel the sea turtles. With the rest of our resident animals, a visit to the Clearwater Aquarium is an afternoon the whole family can enjoy!
We’re giving out limited-edition collectible posters to each CMA visitor age 15 years and under. The posters feature resident animals and marine life species we are focused on protecting through our rescue, research and conservation efforts! Visit all summer to collect each design while they are available and supplies last.
Visitors coming July 17-22nd can meet the actors who played Sawyer (Nathan Gamble), Hazel (Cozi Zuehlsdorff) and Phoebe (Austin Highsmith) in the Dolphin Tale movies, the major motion pictures that were filmed right here at Clearwater Marine Aquarium and throughout the beautiful St. Pete/Clearwater area of Florida. Take a photo and get an autograph during their special appearances this summer – included with your general admission ticket purchase.

Come be inspired and learn all about our mission of rescue, rehab, and release of marine life, environmental education, research, and conservation.
Not your typical aquarium, we are an active marine life hospital, open to visitors. Clearwater Marine Aquarium staff and volunteers work each day to rescue marine life and provide the most advanced and effective care to maximize the opportunity to return sick or injured animals to their homes. The animals that come through our doors arrive because they are suffering from an illness or severe injury. Many of our animals are found by local residents, fishermen, park rangers or even visitors to the area.
