The Florida Aquarium equips you to Dive Right In!

It's a marvelous idea to visit The Florida Aquarium to gain all the educational opportunities.

42 Wallaby Way, Sydney… wait, this isn’t The Florida Aquarium location. The correct address is 701 Channelside Drive Tampa, Florida 33602. If the aquarium parking lot is full, I recommend the South Regional Garage just around the corner.


Way to GO, Florida Aquarium staff!


Did you know The Florida Aquarium ranked at the top in USA TODAY for North America?

TripAdvisor included this aquarium in their top 10!

Oh, let me brag just a bit more by sharing the Parents magazine boasted this aquarium as top 5 most kid-friendly.


My Visit

Upon arriving, I watched the Coastal Predators 4-D show. Let’s just say a surprise is waiting for you. Don’t miss it.

The daily zookeeper talks, meet & greet, animal feedings, and storytime brochure is located at Guest Services. I highly recommend taking a look prior to exploring additional experiences along the way. These are presented in a fun, yet educational way that holds the attention of most children.

Upon entering the animal habitats, I was impressed by the cleanliness. The animals appeared happy and healthy. I won’t spoil the ending by sharing my favorites, I want you to explore without distractions. You are going to enjoy it!

I didn’t have time to experience the extras during this visit: Wild Dolphin Cruise, Close Up Critters, Behind the Scenes tour, Penguins backstage pass and other offsite adventures. They look fascinating!
