The Florida Aquarium, Tampa

(3.6/5 based on 3,800+ reviews on the web)
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. Arrange to visit The Florida Aquarium and other attractions in Tampa using our Tampa vacation planner.

  • I took my kids here and also my parents and they really enjoyed themselves here. There is a restaurant here and also they so have a kids water park , it is small but very convenient for all kids.  more »
  • Compared to that Baltimore Aquarium or the Chicago Aquarium this one is small and dated. Not really worth the $25 admission price.  more »
