ST. PETE BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - Sep 15, 2011) - When the major motion picture "Dolphin Tale" opens on Sept. 23, audiences nationwide will be introduced to Winter the resident celebrity dolphin at Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Guests have the opportunity to meet her in person with the "Winter's Dolphin Tale Getaway" -- a three-night package beginning at $495* that includes accommodations at one of two St. Pete Beach hotels -- TradeWinds Island Grand or TradeWinds Sandpiper; two tickets to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium; a dolphin watch cruise for two; a plush Winter the dolphin toy; and a TradeWinds beach bag. Also included is the nightly resort amenity fee, which includes parking, beach cabana, paddleboats and many other extras at both TradeWinds Florida family resorts. "Winter's Dolphin Tale Getaway" is available through December 24, 2011.

Winter's story is one of survival and hope -- a lesson in the spirit to adapt, as Winter learns to swim with a manmade tail. The movie, starring Morgan Freeman, Ashley Judd and Harry Connick Jr., was shot at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, located 40 minutes from the TradeWinds Island Resorts. Transportation to the aquarium can be easily arranged through the hotel. For more information on the aquarium and Winter, please visit
