Fifty dolphins in one location? Bring your camera and head to Pier 60 in Clearwater! You’ll see the most colorful, creative dolphins hand-painted and brightly decorated by local artists.
The project is brought to you by the Clearwater Regional Chamber and the City of Clearwater as a way to bring attention to these beautiful creatures, especially the most famous dolphin of all, Winter, from the major motion picture, Dolphin Tale. After you see The Pod at Pier 60, head over to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium to see Winter in person!
You can view The Pod of 50 through September 4, 2012. You can see Winter year-round.
More on the painted dolphins
Each dolphin is 6-foot tall and weighs 80 pounds. They’re made of fiberglass and each work of art has a plaque with the artist’s name and the sponsor. I can’t wait to see these works of art, how about you?
