Description

Visit The Florida Aquarium and see more than 12,000 plants and animals from Florida and beyond in the 250,000-square feet (23,000-sq m) located in downtown Tampa.

Start your Florida Aquarium experience in the Wetlands Trail, which is home to animals and plants found in Florida. Watch playful river otters in a natural setting and American alligators basking in the sun. Take this opportunity to witness colorful, free-flying birds and local fish in the mangrove habitat. Other interesting animals to see at The Florida Aquarium include lemurs in the Journey to Madagascar exhibit, stingrays that you are welcome to touch in the Stingray Beach exhibit, a giant Pacific octopus, endangered South African Penguins, and truly unique and rare Australian leafy sea dragons with their leaf-like camouflage. In the 500,000-gallon Coral Reef exhibit see sharks, rays, sea turtles, and various reef fish up close!

Plus, General Admission includes access to the Splash Pad (an outdoor play area perfect for younger kids) as well as 4-D Theater that features 15 minute 3-D films with additional sensory surprises!

The Florida Aquarium is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization whose mission is to entertain, educate and inspire stewardship of the natural environment, and is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.

The Aquarium is clearly one of the best. Did not like some of the signage which were exceptionally difficult to read in the darkness, and some were mislabeled. Strange this has not been noticed before. Unfortunately the day we picked also had hoards of young schoolchildren who were very noisy and not well disciplined. The collection in the Aquarium was fabulous and that made up for the noisy schoolkids. Came to appreciate the work of their teachers --- what patient they had. They deserve more pay. Some fascinating creatures and information, far too much to absorb on one trip.

The exhibits were well presented and enjoyed that we could spend as much time as we wanted looking at the many different species of fish. Staff was very helpful and the store had a wide variety of gifts at prices I thought were reasonable.
