    What to Expect
    The Florida Aquarium is one of the top aquariums in the country, with over 14,000 aquatic creatures, including sharks, otters, alligators and many more. Walk along the Wetlands Trail past alligator-infested waters to the river streams where otters play and explore.

    Then stroll along the Bays & Beaches habitats and touch a variety of different species of stingrays and sharks at a touch pool called Stingray Beach. Look for white-spotted bamboo sharks, coral catsharks, southern rays and more. See penguins right up close. Check out Waves of Wonder, a colorful exhibit with unique jellies, colorful clownfish, a pacific octopus, and more. And don’t forget to check out the outdoor water fun zone for children called Splash Pad. Check out the one-of-a-kind view at the Coral Reef Gallery, one of the most beautiful and diverse ecosystems in the world.
