Explore and Discover
The Florida Aquarium’s habitats are laid out to show the journey of a drop of water from one of Florida’s many freshwater springs out to the open waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Sights include a large simulated wetlands environment located under a tall glass atrium, shallow bays and beaches, and a coral reef ecosystem encompassed in 500,000-gallons of natural seawater. The Florida Aquarium enables you to get up close to many of Florida’s aquatic and terrestrial animals and ecosystems, as well as others from around the world. More than a must-see attraction, we are working to protect and restore our blue planet on many conservation fronts, including research and rescue efforts that help restore Florida’s sea turtle and coral populations and to ensure that sharks continue to swim our seas.
