  • Follow the journey of a drop of water from one of Florida's freshwater springs out to the open waters of the Gulf of Mexico and beyond
  • See a huge simulated wetlands environment, shallow bays and beaches, and a coral reef ecosystem with 500,000 gallons of natural seawater
  • Stroke stingrays and jellyfish, meet lemurs, and crawl into a tree full of hissing cockroaches (luckily, this is optional)

TripAdvisor rates The Florida Aquarium as one of the top 10 aquariums in the whole USA, and it's not hard to see why. From glimpsing rare seahorses and stroking stingrays to learning about our endangered oceanic friends, each exhibit is an exciting and educational dive into our oceans!

Skip the line and dive right into the inviting waters of The Florida Aquarium with these fish-friendly Florida Aquarium tickets.

On the Wetlands Trail see alligators, otters, and pythons, and in Bays & Beaches, learn about endangered green sea turtles and find out what a stingray feels like over at Stingray Beach.

In the Journey to Madagascar you'll meet lemurs, chameleons, geckos and even be able to crawl inside a tree full of hissing cockroaches (if you dare)! Marvel at the jellyfish of magical Moon Bay, and even touch these graceful cold-water creatures who, you'll be relieved to hear, don't sting!

This was so quick and easy to get in and WAY cheaper than on the actual website and even more cost efficient than in person pricing. Only downfall was we went on the weekend and it was a bit too busy.

The Florida Aquarium was beautiful, so many amazing fish. We saved a lot of money buying out tickets on line from Tiqets instead of getting them at the attraction. Will use them again for sure.

We had a great time. Others had said it took 1-2hrs to see everything. We went through all of it including the Raptor show and the 4D theater. Finished in 3hrs and we did not rush.
