Clearwater aquarium visitors will get to skip jammed causeway, take a ferry

CLEARWATER — When the Clearwater Marine Aquarium opened its second site downtown in December, it offered visitors a free shuttle service for the 2-mile drive between the two facilities.

What the aquarium didn’t account for: the sludge of spring break traffic. Even with six looping shuttles, traffic on the Clearwater Memorial Causeway has slowed the brief ride to a half-hour slog.

The aquarium leaders’ solution is the stuff of a motorists’ daydream: Starting today, aquarium visitors will be ferried across the Intracoastal Waterway on a speedboat.

The water taxi will start off free on a trial basis, looping every hour between Winter’s Dolphin
