We are so proud to present the completed masterpiece of our magnificent dolphin sculpture created by our very own Staff Member, Elizabeth! She beautifully illustrates the all-encompassing spirit of Clearwater Marine Aquarium, including our amazing animal residents, staff, volunteers and most outstandingly our mission!

On Sunday, November 17th, the Clearwater Marine Aquarium and the Clearwater Regional Chamber are teaming up with area artists to offer you an exciting art experience. With some coaching from a pro, you will decorate a 7″ tall resin dolphin, which you can then take home. All supplies will be provided: dolphin, paint and paint brushes. In addition, you get a free day at Winter’s Dolphin Tale Adventure (WDTA). The dolphins are custom molded replicas of the 6 ft tall dolphins that comprise the Clearwater’s Dolphins Trail!

Classes will be held on SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2013 at 11 am and 1 pm. Classes will last for 1 hour. Two classes will be held each hour – one for children, 5 – 12 years of age – taught by Artist Haley Kukoleck and one for those 13 years of age and older taught by Artist Vanessa Montenegro. Maximum class size is 20 people.
Price for one person is $39.95. To register go to or stop by WDTA at 300 Cleveland St., Clearwater, FL 33755.

Did you know that bottlenose dolphins send messages to one another in all sorts of different ways? They can squeak and whistle or even use body language – leaping as high as 20 feet in the air, snapping their jaws or slapping their tails on the surface of the water. (Pictured: Hope)

In honor of #WorldAnimalDay this Friday, support and celebrate these magnificent animals with a Symbolic Adoption! *With a symbolic adoption, your donation helps us care for our residents and provides for their medical care, food and environments.
