Come to Clearwater on your next Orlando vacation
October 23rd 2012
|If you and your family enjoyed ”Dolphin Tale” starring Winter the Dolphin - then you should make a date to spend a day at nearby Clearwater Aquarium.
VillaDirect guests staying at our vacation homes are only about 1 hours drive away from this famous aquarium that’s located near to the causeway bridge that goes over the inter-coastal waterway at Clearwater. It’s easy to get to (and we can provide you with directions if you need them) and it makes for a great day out with the family. Take a stroll down the white, sugary sands of Clearwater beach in the morning, and then spend the afternoon at the Aquarium before returning to your vacation home in Orlando, just an hours drive back.
We recommend that you purchase the Eco Combo ticket which allows you to get a ”behind the scenes” tour of the facility, includes admission to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, to enjoy the ”Sea Life Safari” and to get 10% discount at the gift shop.
Daily activities vary, depending on the time you visit – but Clearwater Marine Aquarium offers a variety of animal and education presentations throughout the day for you and your family to enjoy.
Here’s a sample of some of the daily presentations:
|>||Story Time: How Winter Lost Her Tail|
|>||Meet our Sea Turtles|
|>||Nicholas the Dolphin in Action|
|>||Playtime with Hope the Baby Dolphin|
|>||Stingray Presentation and Feeding|
|>||From Sand to Sea: Sea Turtle Population|
|>||Meet our River Otters|
|>||Ocean Obstacles, Human Effects on Sea Life|
|>||Saving Endangered Sea Turtles|
|>||Dolphins – Winter & Panama|
|>||Exploring Florida Fish (Feeding)|
