The Ocean Calls to Those Living in Tampa

The mystique of the sea calls to many. Those living in Tampa have a unique opportunity to delve beyond the surface and get to know the creature of the deep. At the Florida Aquarium, exhibits and education stimulate an interest in conservation of the oceans and care of its wildlife.

Two levels of exploration await at 701 Channelside Drive. Open everyday there's loads of time to explore. Creatures great and small thrive here ranging from cuddly otters to fearsome sharks. Upside down jellies are silly in appearance and found in the Bays and Beaches exhibit. Also in this space visitors will find stingrays, garden eels and spiny lobsters. A favorite swimmer here is the green sea turtle who gracefully slips through the water. Madagascar reefs are brimming with aquatic animals in Journey to Madagascar. Reef fish swim about in a rainbow of colors by giant clams. Ring tailed lemurs earn laughter with their antics and the Madagascar gecko can be hard to spot.
