Come experience Florida's Best Aquarium and one of the "top 5 kid-friendly aquariums in the country"! Whether exploring "the great outdoors" while inside our cool, air-conditioned facility or coming face to beak with one of our penguins, The Florida Aquarium is a fabulous detination in the Tampa Bay area. After you've seen everything inside, continue the journey to the 2-acre outdoor, water adventure park at Explore A Shore. But bring a bathing suit because water cannons are plentiful and children can explore a two-story, water-logged pirate ship. Parents can relax with a beverage at the Cantina while the kids play the day away.
