CLEARWATER MARINE AQUARIUM
The Clearwater Marine Aquarium has a Bay News 9 exhibit. Visitors will feel like they are inside an aquarium surrounded by sealife.
Beside each animal is a "Lift and Learn" tag where you can do just that: Lift the flap and learn how weather affects that animal. You can learn about dolphins, sea turtles, stingrays and much more.
Plus see how Bay News 9 was a part of the movies Dolphin Tale and its sequel Dolphin Tale 2! And be sure to say hi to Winter while you're there.
