Just three miles from Sand Key, FL lives a true story of inspiration. For those of you who are already fans of Winter the Dolphin, you will be thrilled to see this movie star live.

The Clearwater Marine Aquarium, a Tampa Bay educational facility dedicated to the mission of marine wildlife rescue, is proud to be the home of Winter the Dolphin. Winter, a dolphin who was rescued by the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, required a life-saving tail amputation.

The true story of Winter and her tail is nothing short of inspirational and the work that the Clearwater Marine Aquarium does is nothing short of humbling.

There’s nothing quite like getting up close to dolphins.
