Best Times to Visit
Clearwater Marine Aquarium is less than one mile inland from Clearwater Beach – voted 2019’s #1 beach in the U.S. by TripAdvisor. Due to the proximity and popularity, the peak times for visiting occur in the days/weeks around major holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s, and also during spring break (March/April) and summer (June/July). We also recommend arriving before 11 a.m. or after 3 p.m. to avoid the busiest times of day.
We are regularly open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and have extended hours seasonally. CMA is open every day except Christmas Day and Thanksgiving Day.
