The warm waters off the coast of Clearwater make it a wonderful place for spotting friendly Bottlenose dolphins dancing in the waves, whilst the glorious Clearwater Aquarium is home to the famous dolphin, Winter, star of the family-favourite blockbuster Dolphin Tale. The aquarium focuses on rescue and rehabilitation, as well as providing visitors with plenty of fun, interaction and learning about its fascinating inhabitants.
