Delve into the wonders of the underwater world at The Florida Aquarium. Situated in the Channel District of historic Tampa, the aquarium features a collection of more than 20,000 aquatic plants and animals, as well as an outdoor water park and several interactive exhibits. Wander past alligator swamps and 4.3 m (14 ft) long Burmese pythons in the simulated wetlands exhibit, or head out on the open water on a wild dolphin viewing expedition aboard the aquarium’s 22 m (72 ft) catamaran. Don’t miss a chance to swim with the fish through the guest dive program. Catch a city bus to the aquarium to avoid paying to park.
