    Dolphins! and a great cause

    Why make the owner of a hotel richer, when your money can be used to aid in the rescue and rehabilitation of marine animals with the possibility of a movie star in some of your photos. The Clearwater Marine Aquarium is such a great place to visit and all of the employees are always so nice and friendly. If you haven't watched Dolphin Tale, you should, so you can understand what they do. The venue was very accomodating and the dolphins swimming behind us during the ceremony made a wedding our guests will not forget.

    Unique and unforgettable rehearsal dinner experience

    From the moment we contacted the Clearwater Marine Aquarium about hosting our rehearsal dinner there we knew we were in good hands. Ashley answered all of our questions and was available when we had other questions come to mind. From planning months prior, to cleanup the night of the event working with the aquarium was an absolute breeze. All of our guests ranged and raved about how fun and different the night was from traditional rehearsal dinners. We were able to have the event catered (with alcohol). Since the event was after normal business hours the entire aquarium was rented out to our guests. The staff surprised to groom and myself the night of bringing us down into the platform at the dolphin tank. We fed Hope, she gave us “kisses” and waved goodbye. I can’t recommend this experience enough. Thank you to the entire aquarium staff & residents (animals) for hosting all of our friends and family for one of the best nights of our lives!

    We hosted a wedding kick off/rehearsal party a few weeks ago for over 90 guests. By far a wonderful experience. The venue was perfect and working with Ashley was a breeze. Coordinating the details for the event long distance was so easy as Ashley made suggestions, walked me through the process and was on site to ensure all went well for my kids big event. Thank you all for making the start of the weekend celebrations a event to remember
