  • 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
  • See a huge simulated wetlands environment, shallow bays and beaches, and a coral reef ecosystem with 500,000 gallons of natural seawater
  • Stroke stingrays, 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.

On the Wetlands Trail see alligators, otters, and pythons, and in Bays & Beaches meet a 300-pound Goliath grouper, 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)! In Dragons Down Under, see pipefish, seahorses and the rare leafy seadragons.

Want more information on your favorite water-based buddies? Several habitat exhibits have a plaque with a phone number beside them. Just dial those digits to learn more!

The Florida Aquarium is also working to protect and restore the planet's wildlife population with lots of research and rescue efforts. Every visit supports this cause, putting you one step closer to saving the world.
