Clearwater Marine Aquarium is celebrating 50 years of dedication to marine life in 2022.

Welcome to Clearwater Marine Aquarium, where you will explore the world of marine life rescue and see our working marine animal hospital, where we care for rescued dolphins, sea turtles, river otters, and other marine animals.

Join us for a 90-minute scenic eco-boat cruise around our local estuary. Be a part of citizen science, and observe data collection in action, as we perform a net pull and conduct a “show and  tell” onboard of sea creatures found in the grass beds and sand flats of the bay. Get your feet wet at a local shell island and collect seashells. See local wildlife above and below the water!ings are defined as a mask, buff or face shield.
