Classic Attractions & Activities
For daytime family fun, board Captain Memo’s Pirate Cruise, departing daily from Clearwater Beach. Aboard the “Pirate’s Ransom,” there’s pirate-themed entertainment for the whole family, plus complimentary beer and wine for adults.
Don’t miss Clearwater Marine Aquarium, home to the famous Winter the dolphin, who starred in the blockbuster movie Dolphin Tale. Winter’s story is unique and inspiring. After losing her tail due to an entanglement with a crab trap, Winter has defied all odds by not only surviving but learning to swim with help from a prosthetic tail. Besides visiting Winter at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, you can also see all the other rescued dolphins, sea turtles, otters and other creatures that call the aquarium home.
