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.

The Florida Aquarium reviews

Called and was told we would be kicked out if we didn’t wear a mask. Not reasonable at all. Took our money and went the the Tampa Zoo! more »
Beautiful aquarium with lots to see and fun for people of all ages. The 4D movie was neat! The staff were all extremely knowledgeable - and I love that they're doing Coral restoration projects! It's great to hear them explain the process to the public and voice the need to help coral reefs around the world. Would love to come back!
Very nice aquarium, one of the best. I like that it is very similar to my home aquarium, the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga. That is definitely not a bad standard to be with. The Florida Aquarium is a must go for any zoo and aquarium lover who is visiting Tampa. I highly recommend visiting and purchasing the extra Penguin Encounter, as the African Penguins do not have a permanent enclosure inside the facility for regular viewing.
