A new exhibit is coming to Clearwater Marine Aquarium, the non-profit aquarium in Clearwater, Florida dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and release of sick and injured marine animals.

The Whales: Living with Giants exhibit is a fully immersive experience that allows visitors to get up close to whales. The exhibition will feature multi-media exhibits, a life-sized walk-through whale gallery and a virtual reality experience.

A theatre will showcase films and speakers presenting on issues facing whales. There will also be an interactive zone for children to keep young visitors entertained and engaged.

Dr. James Powell, executive director of CMA’s Research Institute, commented on the new display at Clearwater Marine Aquarium: “This exhibit brings our guests into an undersea experience where they come eye to eye with a wide variety of whale species found in Florida waters.

“It’s especially timely with the recent ground-breaking discovery of an entirely new whale species not far from CMA off the Florida gulf coast,” Dr. Powell added.

Whales: Living with Giants is debuting on March 13 and will run until August 31, 2021.
