Swim with a movie star

Clearwater Marine Aquarium is home to Winter – a tailess dolphin – the star of the movie Dolphin Tale.  The movie was filmed on location with Winter, Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd.

The true story tells how Winter’s tail was caught in a crab trap and she was so badly injured that her tail flukes died and fell off – but she survived (it’s a great film – I cried buckets!)

You can meet Winter every day of the week and even get in the water with her – the wade encounter costs $249 – so we haven’t done it – just visiting was special.

Many other interactions, tours, feeding encounters and opportunities are on offer.  Visit http://www.seewinter.com/ to find out more.
