In an effort to better welcome all visitors, Clearwater Marine Aquarium has partnered with KultureCity to enhance its offerings for people with sensory issues. Visitors can view a social story before their visit to get an idea of what to expect. During their visit, guests can borrow a sensory bag, which includes fidget tools and noise-canceling headphones, and they can take advantage of quiet zones in the attraction.
Say cheers to Clearwater Marine Aquarium’s Brew Fest – a captivating evening of craft brews and marine wonders. From 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 6, savor local beers, groove to live music and enjoy the beauty of marine life including interactive dolphin presentations. Tickets to this 21-plus event help support vital marine conservation efforts. Choose from general admission or VIP tickets, both of which include 12 samples of beer and/or food, with additional samples available for purchase.
All visitors will want to meet Izzy, the aquarium’s newest resident Atlantic bottlenose dolphin. She was rescued near North Padre Island, Texas, in June 2022 after years of illegal human interaction in the wild caused her health to decline. She required intervention, and after CMA was selected as her forever home, she arrived here in November 2022, ready to join the CMA pod and enjoy lots of love and care.
Discover the Ultimate Virtual Reality Experience in CMA’s VR Theater, which includes “Remembering Winter: A Musical 360-Degree VR Tribute to Winter’s Legacy.” Separate VR tickets can be purchased at Ticketing, Guest Services or the VR Theater Counter.
CMA is celebrating Peace, Love and Dolphins at their Dolphintopia exhibition. Through art, activities and interactive displays, this immersive experience highlights fascinating scientific facts about dolphins as well as their connection with humans throughout the ages. Dolphintopia is included with general admission.
