This FINtastic destination features one of the largest all-living coral reef displays in this hemisphere, a 120,000-gallon shark tank, year-round sea lion shows, African Penguins, Marmosets, numerous touch tanks and more than 100 exhibits including the lavish indoor gardens of our Butterflies, Bugs and Birds Exhibit. You can also try one of our JAWsome Aquatic Adventures, like the Shark Dive where you’ll get in the cage and down into our amazing Lost City of Atlantis Shark Exhibit. Or the Penguin Encounter where you’ll get up close and personal with our cutest feathered friends. You can even snorkel with tropical fish from around the world with our Pirate Snorkel Adventure (available seasonally).
There are plenty of special events on the calendar, for guests of all ages. Check our website for a full listing of the great activities you won’t want to miss. Like our Family Sleepovers, where you’ll explore the Aquarium after hours, then spend the night in front of one of the tanks. Or Fish & Sips, our adults only wine tasting event featuring more than 20 local vineyards with tasting and purchasing opportunities. You can celebrate the holidays with us at our Holiday Brunches, or even your child’s next birthday!
We specialize in parties for kids and adults alike. You can even get married where the walls are alive with our most colorful and tropical exhibits.
