The Florida Aquarium offers a unique look at all that swims, floats, and crawls in and around Florida waters and beyond.
The 200,000 square-feet attraction is home to more than 9,000 animals. Follow the journey from a single drop of rain to the deep waters where the ocean’s top predators are found. Along the way see river otters, alligators, stingrays, seahorses and pipefishes, fascinating jellies (commonly called jellyfish), lion fish, sea turtles, sharks and more! There is a 500,000 gallon floor-to-ceiling Coral Reef tank, 3 touch pools, plus multiple other exhibits. Watch your children enjoy an outdoor play area (Splash Pad) with wet and dry zones, or see a short film in our 4-D Theater-- all included with general admission!
The Florida Aquarium is conveniently located in downtown Tampa, along the trolley line, and between 2 cruise ship terminals.
