Winter the Dolphin

,
Winter the Dolphin - Clearwater Beach, Florida

Winter in Clearwater Beach is more than just a cold weather season. Winter the Dolphin, is a bottlenose dolphin with a story great enough to make her a movie star. Winter is the star of Dolphin Tale and one of the stars in Dolphin Tale 2.

The Story of Winter the Dolphin

Winter was found, entangled in a crab trap line, near Cape Canaveral, Florida. She was only two months old. Unable to swim and trapped so tightly, the line had cut off circulation to her tail. Winter was disentangled and transported across Florida to Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Most dolphins do not survive being trapped in crab trap lines. The Clearwater Marine Aquarium helped Winter through extensive treatments, but her tail could not be saved. It had to be removed.

Winter the dolphin never stopped fighting for her survival. Even without a normal tail, she would fully recover and adapt to a new swim pattern featuring a prosthetic tail.

The full story of Winter the Dolphin can be read in the book, Winter’s Tail or in the movie filmed in Clearwater Beach, Dolphin Tale. (Learn about all the movies filmed in Clearwater Beach, Florida area.)

Visit Winter the Dolphin

You can visit Winter in Clearwater Beach, Florida any time of year. Winter the Dolphin still lives at Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Winter’s story has inspired millions of people from all over the world. Clearwater Marine Aquarium is a marine life rescue center focused on the rescue, rehabilitation and release of sick or injured marine animals.

While at Clearwater Marine Aquarium, you’ll get a chance to see Winter the dolphin, Hope – the dolphin star of Dolphin Tale 2, and the other animals that are going through treatment and recovery including dolphins, pelicans, sea turtles, otters, sharks, stingrays, and even more! While you’re there you’ll learn more about the animals there, and you’ll learn more about marine life and conservation of marine life.

,
Clearwater Beach - Where to Eat, Stay & Play

Clearwater Beach, Florida has been voted as 2018’s #1 Best Beach in America, ranked in the top 10 Best Beaches in the World, and is one of the Best Spring Break Beaches in America! If you’re planning a trip to Clearwater Beach you may have some questions and we will do our best to answer them all! If you have a question about Clearwater Beach we don’t answer, please leave a comment below!

Traveling to Clearwater Beach

Clearwater Beach, Florida is located just outside of Tampa, Florida – providing easy access from nearby airports, Tampa International Airport and St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport. Both airports are within 20 miles of Clearwater Beach, making it a short drive… in distance at least. During peak tourism season the traffic entering onto Clearwater Beach can back up. If you’re just going to the beach for the day you can avoid the traffic and save on the hassle of finding parking by taking Clearwater Beach Ferry from Downtown Clearwater.

If you didn’t take the Clearwater Beach Ferry, you’ll need to find some parking. There are several public parking lots, parking meters on the streets and a parking garage located on the north side of the island – but parking can still be difficult to find. So always keep in mind the ability to park in Downtown Clearwater and use the Jolley Trolley or Clearwater Beach Ferry.

Where to Eat

Clearwater Beach has many incredible restaurants to visit for breakfast, lunch, happy hour, romantic dinners and even late night cravings.

Delicious Seafood:

  • Frenchy’s Original Cafe

Great Food with the Best Views:

  • Palm Pavillion Beachside Bar & Grill
  • Frenchy’s Rockaway Grill
  • Bait House (great outdoor atmosphere, on the water)
  • Jimmy’s Fish House & Iguana Bar

My Personal Favorites:

  • Frenchy’s Original Cafe: Buffalo Shrimp, Grouper Sandwich or Crabby Shrimp Sandwich
  • Bait House: Drunken Shrimp, South Beach Quesadilla or Bait House Burger
  • Pearly’s Beach Eats: Blackened Fish Tacos
  • Clear Sky Cafe: Bloody Mary Bar and great breakfast food!

Worth The Drive – Tarpon Springs, Florida

,
Tarpon Springs, Florida

Looking for a great day trip to take from Clearwater Beach, Florida? Head to the beautiful Greek village of Tarpon Springs! Tarpon Springs has the highest percentage of Greek Americans of any city in the United States. Enjoy a short trip to Tarpon Springs and experience delicious Greek food, quaint local shops and walks down the sponge docks.

The History of Tarpon Springs, Florida

Tarpon Springs, Florida is a small area surrounding bayous flowing into the Gulf of Mexico. The small area was settled in 1876, and by the 1880s the first sponge business was already founded and the industry quickly began growing. Greek Immigrants began arriving in Tarpon Springs in the 1890s to work in the growing sponge industry.

In 1905 sponge diving was introduced and many of the Greek immigrants became sponge divers. The sponge industry soon became one of the leading maritime industries of Florida, and the most important industry for Tarpon Springs, generating millions of dollars a year.

In 1947 a large bloom of Red Tide algae nearly wiped out the sponge fields of the Gulf of Mexico. The sponge diving industry took a massive hit, and many of the locals forced to switch industries – often switching to the shrimping industry. The Gulf of Mexico sponge fields slowly recovered from the damage caused by the red tide algae and the sponge fishing industry began growing again. In the 1980’s, the Mediterranean sponges were almost completely killed off by a sponge disease, leading to a boom in the Tarpon Springs Sponge Industry.

Things to do in Tarpon Springs, Florida

I absolutely love visiting Tarpon Springs. It’s very difficult for me to not to take a quick drive up to Tarpon Springs when on vacation in Clearwater Beach, Florida. The atmosphere of the small Greek city is fantastic, especially when walking down the Historic Sponge Docks.

The entire area has delicious Greek restaurants on every block. My personal favorite is Hellas Restaurant and Bakery. Hellas sits right in the historic sponge dock area. Sitting right near the sponge docks and filled with local history and Greek influence, the atmosphere of the restaurant is incredible. And more importantly, the food is incredibly delicious! My favorite things on the menu are Hella’s Original Greek Salad, Saganaki (Opa!), Hellas Gyro and their Mediterranean Stuffed Shrimp. For dessert, I usually grab some baklava to go because I’ve already eaten way too much!

After an amazing (and very large) meal, I love walking for a walk along the historic sponge docks. There are so many really fun and unique shops in that area selling. If you have time, be sure to check out: GETAGURU homemade soap, The Sponge Exchange, Tarpon Sponge Company, and Lori’s Soaps & Sponges!

Tarpon Springs isn’t just local shops and delicious Greek food, it also has great activities for the whole family! You can go for a Sponge Diving Tour! Learn the history of Tarpon Springs and even watch a sponge diver put on traditional inflatable sponge diving suit and provide a hands-on display of the different types of sponges. There’s also a fantastic Aquarium in Tarpon Springs!

Visit Tarpon Springs, Florida

The great location and fun activities make Tarpon Springs a fantastic place for a short day trip or even just a quick trip for a delicious lunch or dinner. On the way to and from Tarpon Springs, you’ll drive past the entrance of Honeymoon Island State Park – a beautiful sunset location.  You’ll also be able to catch a ferry from Honeymoon Island to Caladesi Island if you’re not up for the walk to Caladesi Island State Park from Clearwater Beach.

You can also connect a day of Kayaking at Crystal River, Florida with a delicious Greek dinner in Tarpon Springs for an incredible day trip from Clearwater Beach that’s totally worth the drive!
