It has been several years since young Sawyer Nelson and the dedicated team at the Clearwater Marine Hospital, headed by Dr. Clay Haskett, rescued Winter. With the help of Dr. Cameron McCarthy, who developed a unique prosthetic tail for the injured dolphin, they were able to save her life. Yet their fight is not over. Winter's surrogate mother, the very elderly dolphin Panama, has passed away, leaving Winter without the only poolmate she has ever known. However, the loss of Panama may have even greater repercussions for Winter, who, according to USDA regulations, cannot be housed alone, as dolphins' social behavior requires them to be paired with other dolphins. Time is running out to find a companion for her before the team at Clearwater loses their beloved Winter to another aquarium. Written by Warner Bros.

Did You Know?


David Yates, CEO of Clearwater Marine Aquarium, was in two scenes in the film. One with Bethany Hamilton and the other at Sawyer's party. See more »


The minivan that Sawyer and his family are seen inside in two different scenes has a no smoking logo on the dashboard. This is typical of US rental cars, but almost never seen in personal vehicles. The fact that it is shown being driven by Sawyer's mother on two different days in Sawyer's home town indicates the minivan was supposed to be the family car. See more »

Dolphin Tale 2 was as inspirational as its predecessor
21 September 2014 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

Just saw this with my movie theatre-working friend. We both enjoyed this true-life sequel about Winter's acting strangely especially after the death of a fellow dolphin early in the film. Since Hazel and Sawyer are a little older and practically young adults, there's a hint of a budding romance between them though the main focus is on Winter and another possible new playmate named Hope. All the cast from the previous one is back and Morgan Freeman's character is allowed to say some witty lines that my friend found funny while I was a little amused at them. Actor Charles Martin Smith is the writer/director and he appears as the guy telling the Harry Connick Jr. character he has 30 days to fix whatever violations he cited. In summary, Dolphin Tale 2 was pretty enjoyable for a true-life sequel.
