“Undersea fun for the whole family”

Discover one of the best attractions in Tampa at The Florida Aquarium in the beautiful Channelside district. A wonderful family destination with plenty of fun activities like Swim with the Fishes, Penguins: Backstage Pass and a Wild Dolphin Ecotour. Don't miss Explore A Shore, our outdoor water fun zone for the children! Explore A Shore, The Florida Aquarium's 2-acre outdoor water adventure zone, lets the kids cool off while parents relax under the shade of the Cantina bar and grill. Watery waves, slippery slides, gushing geysers and an assortment of animal models are just a few of the attractions for the kids. Toddlers will enjoy sand castles, little slides and giant sea creature figures as they play in Shipwreck Shore. The Wild Dolphin Cruise at The Florida Aquarium earned Dolphin SMART recognition in 2011, after successfully demonstrating responsible viewing and advertising of dolphins in the wild and educating patrons on the importance of dolphin conservation. Guests can view wild dolphin aboard the 72-foot, powered catamaran the Bay Spirit II. Guests 6 and older can Swim with the Fishes at The Florida Aquarium and certified SCUBA divers 15 and older can get face to face with massive sharks in the aquarium's largest exhibit during Dive with the Sharks! These immersive dive programs allow guests to experience these amazing aquatic ecosystems first hand and actually become part of the exhibit!
