The-Florida-AquariumGet closer to all your favorite sea creatures at The Florida Aquarium. See cownose rays, sand tiger sharks, sea dragons, green sea turtles, moray eels, giant pacific octopus, and thousands of other unforgettable creatures. Touch real stingrays and bamboo sharks in the 5,000 gallon Touch Tank. You can also touch sea stars, crustaceans, urchins and mollusks in the No Bone Zone touch tank.

Enter the wetlands and get within inches of over 30 species of free flying birds. Come face to face with alligators and if you are brave enough you can touch a baby gator or a snake. Let your kids have fun in the two-acre outdoor water park complete with fountains, slides, geysers and a huge two-story pirate ship.

You can also experience the Penguin Back Stage Pass where you can meet–and even touch–penguins in an up-close setting and watch them swim and play. Or dive straight into the action by diving into the Coral Reef Tank experience!
