Dolphin Tale

A story centered on the friendship between a boy and a dolphin whose tail was lost in a crab trap.

 

In Detail

 

Dolphin Tale is inspired by the amazing true story of a brave dolphin and the compassionate strangers who banded together to save her life.

Swimming free, a young dolphin is caught in a crab trap, severely damaging her tail.  She is rescued and transported to the Clearwater Marine Hospital, where she is named Winter.  But her fight for survival has just begun.

Without a tail, Winter’s prognosis is dire.  It will take the expertise of a dedicated marine biologist, the ingenuity of a brilliant prosthetics doctor and the unwavering devotion of a young boy to bring about a groundbreaking miracle – a miracle that might not only save Winter but could also help scores of people all around the world.

The real Winter, who plays herself in the film, today serves as a symbol of courage, perseverance and hope to millions of people – both able and disabled – who have been touched by her remarkable story of recovery and rehabilitation.

Enter to win a chance for you and a guest to board a flight to sunny Tampa, Florida where you will visit the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, a unique facility that specializes in the rescue, rehabilitation and release of sick or injured marine animals, and meet the real life Winter.  You will spend time with and observe this amazing and very special dolphin.  You will also explore the aquarium on a fascinating backstage tour where you will see first hand all of the inner-workings of this unique facility.
