Joel takes you to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, home of “Winter” the famous dolphin based on the movie Dolphin Tale. Winter’s best friend is the lesser-known Panama, one of the rare dolphins identified to be deaf anywhere in the world. Joel meets Panama, and talks with her trainers to learn about the life of Panama, and how her deafness makes her either different or just like any other dolphin.

Special thanks to ZVRS

  • In the middle of 2000’s My family visited Clearwater Aquarium to see dolphins and other animals like sea otter and sea turtles. I have been gone clearwater many times for our vacation from Chicago since 1980’s. That is place for relaxing and play the beach also go to Orlando for disneyworld or Sea world etc…. I didn’t know that the deaf dolphin is there but i heard about finless dolphin in clearwater.
