About Aracaju Aquarium, Aracaju
Opened in 2002, this is one of the most popular tourist attractions in town, and is visited by about 120,000 people annually. The oceanarium is the first one in Northeast Brazil; it is shaped like a giant turtle; and it’s surrounded by palm and eucalyptus trees.
Inside, its 18 aquariums exhibit about 70 marine animals of various species, all of which are native to Sergipe, particularly the Sao Francisco river. The prime attraction is the giant 150,000 litre tank close to the entrance filled with stingrays, sharks, other fish, and a replica of a submerged rig. Four other tanks specialise in invertebrates, crustaceans, mollusks and fish. With a guide’s help, you can even touch some of the sharks and other fish.
The Oceanarium frequently holds guided tours, lectures and exhibitions. It’s a great place for a family visit.

Aracaju Aquarium, Aracaju Reviews
It's so little! I would recommend if you want to see a group of sharks and some little turtles. Overall I am kind of disappointed because compared to the TAMAR project of Praia do Forte this one has only is 1/3 of the size and attractions. I would recommend watch the animal feeding. You can also ask for a stamp in your arm in case you want to go out and return later on.
What these guys are doing in terms of turtle conservation is awesome, but the visitor attraction wasn't up to much. A few nice fishes to look at and a handful of disinterested sharks.
