    Excellent place to bring the kids. The splash pad is an awesome extra. Food at cafe ray is delicious. Kids had a blast and already asked to go back.

    Easy access from Downtown Tampa, on the Teco tram line. The Floridian Mangrove took my breath away. This area is full of animals, birds, reptiles and fish that are native to Florida. Lots of information and fun facts are available via interactive boards. A couple of empty display tanks but we didn't struggle for long to find the inhabitants in each tank. Supervised touch tanks allow visitors to physically interact with jellyfish, sea stars, anemones and cow nose rays. There is an outdoor adult refreshment bar outside along with a kids splash pool. The cafe made food to order. A fantastic experience, we will definitely be returning when we get the chance.

    A great couple of hours with so much to see and do. Well worth the ticket price. Lots if different zones from an indoor economy system to an underwater immersive section. Play area outside too with lots of shade.

    Nice Aquarium to visit. The indoor AC on a hot summer day was welcome. We opted for the 75 min boat ride to catch a view of some dolphins. Was pleasant saw a few.

    Touching the Sting Rays was fun! Wish I could remember all that I learned. The tiny transparent Jellies were amazing. Spoonbills are graceful and pretty pink. Thank you for a fabulous afternoon visit on an air conditioned hot day. We selected tickets online and gratefully skipped the line!

    Loved the “skip the wait” & they let us in 45 minutes early. The No Bone Zone was fun - got to touch various sea creatures.Someone was there to supervise & answer any questions. The 4D theater was about sea turtles- complete with mists of water. Plenty of areas to explore. Also there is a section where they are growing a specific type of coral to help replenish the reefs. Very interesting. I noticed they were having a child’s birthday party in a separate room. Very cool place to have a kid’s party. I would definitely return here. Next time I will leave my car at the Joel and take the free trolley. In fact ,it was raining ( big surprise-Florida in hurricane season) when we left so we hopped on the trolley down from the aquarium and rode the loop to see the sights.

    Sharks and Reptiles show was great Could not attend 4D show since it was closed due to rain. Overall good experience

  • 03-Aug-2023

    Seen all the different types of fish I never knew about and how easy it was to navigate through the whole area

    I invited a group of family and friends to meet me here for my kid's 2nd birthday and I might as well have been at Disney World! First things first, don't buy your ticket on the Aquarium's site. I paid $30 something per person online using TripAdvisor and the day of at the ticket office they were in the $40something dollar range. I don't know if I just don't get out much or if that was super expensive to look at some fish in a big tank. I went on a Saturday in June and I will NEVER do that again. It was SO CROWDED and overwhelming. People were everywhere. The aquarium entrance is right next to the port entrance for cruise ships, so there are just people in every direction. There are seemingly endless attractions and exhibits throughout the upstairs including sea and land creatures. Like I said, it was crowded so we barely got through half and regularly bumped into other people. The food in the eatery is very good! Unfortunately, there was lightning in the area so the splash pad was closed. There were tons of photo ops and the kids loved it, so I'll probably be back on a weekday afternoon or something. IMPORTANT! Parking in the lot adjacent to the aquarium was $20. There's also a garage across the street (idk how much it costs), a cruise parking lot (free) a half a mile north at York Street and parking at Sparkman Wharf that's a quarter mile west (pay by the hour).
