Connect with the sea at the Florida Aquarium! Since opening in 1995, the aquarium has been delighting visitors with over 7,000 aquatic plants and animals from the sunshine state and beyond. With tons of different exhibits and interactive displays, it’s easy to see why TripAdvisor ranked The Florida Aquarium in the top 10 aquariums in the country!

The aquarium’s habitats are arranged in a way that demonstrates the journey of a drop of water from one of Florida’s various freshwater springs to the Gulf of Mexico. You’ll see a wetland simulator, shallow bays and beaches, coral reef systems and more.

Included exhibits & activities:

  • Wetlands Trail: see alligators, otters and pythons as you hike through this wetlands simulator.
  • Journey to Madagascar: crawl inside a tree full of hissing cockroaches or watch as the lemurs, chameleons and geckos interact with their Madagascar-themed habitat.
  • Bays & Beaches: want to get up close and personal with a 300 pound Goliath grouper? Then this is the exhibit for you! You’ll also see spiny lobsters and get to touch a few rays at Stingray Beach.
  • No Bones Zone: get to know these spineless creatures! You’ll see anemones, sea cucumbers, starfish and more.
  • Coral Reef: this reef is full of the coolest aquatic life. Visit sea turtles, Sand Tiger sharks, porcupine fish and the bright green Moray eel.
  • Dragons Down Under: did you know there’s dragons in the sea? Learn more about sea dragons, sea horses and pipefish as you dive deep into their ecosystem.
  • Ocean Commotion: see what all the commotion is about as you watch octopus, moon jellies, mantis shrimp and clown fish interact.
  • 4D Theater: this experience brings the on-screen show to life! With moving seats, realistic weather conditions and more special effects, you’ll never see another show like it! Daily showings occur from 10:30am-4:00pm.
  • Splash Pad: it’s fun for the whole family. The aquarium’s outdoor water playzone includes tons of water dump buckets, spray areas, sandboxes and more! The Splash Pad is open daily (weather permitting) from 10:00am-4:45pm.
