The coach driver was fun and entertaining. The beach is stunning. The aquarium was great and wr visited Hulk Hogan's gift shop. We had an absolute blast! It is about a 20 min walk from the beach to the aquarium though so if you're not into walking then do a bit of research on how to travel via Jolley Trolley. We got on the wrong one - what a fun magical mystery tour!

We transport you to the West Coast, where you will have free time to enjoy on Clearwater Beach. Then, during the day, you will visit the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Their unique facility is home to underwater viewing windows, a hands-on stingray beach, and many other one-of-a-kind animal homes and exhibits that are truly different. You can also visit Winter the dolphin. Winter was rescued after having her tail caught in a crab trap line and was brought to CMA where the animal care staff and volunteers worked around the clock to rehabilitate her. After a long struggle, she lost her tail, but not her spirits. Winter is an energetic dolphin and an inspiration to all. She was fitted for a prosthetic tale and became the star of the major motion picture, Dolphin Tale. Dolphin Tale, a Warner Bros. Alcon Entertainment 3-D major motion picture was based on her life story.

You can also ride the Jolly Trolley up to Historic Clearwater Downtown, where the Winters Dolphin Tail Adventure is located. This fun and educational exhibit will take you inside the movie and takes 3D to a whole new level! Inside WDTA, you'll find re-built scenes, movie images, and a variety of actual props used in Dolphin Tale.
