Aquarium with sharks, penguins, stingray touch tanks, a wild dolphin cruise & a water playground.- Google
"The facilities are clean and they have an upgraded stingray touch tank."
"Oh and to cap it all off, a very high priced gift shop and snack bar."

I spent about two hours here with myself and my girlfriend. I really don't know why people write such bad reviews about this place. This is an aquarium and most of these type of places attract children and families with children which we did not have any and we still had a good time. Don't listen to the people who leave bad reviews as they obviously have no appreciate for aquatics. If your a fisher, or diver, or just love fish and water both fresh and saltwater the this is the place for you. They even have landside exhibits that may surprise you to see where their from. When I went there were hornbills making nests in the ceiling rafters. This place really is like an open living environment on the inside. It's really cool and for the money I think it's well spent. I would definitely return.

Well it wasn't bad, had to wait in the heat to buy a ticket, then put in another line inside, had some cool things but felt disorganized, the map was a help but taking the steps 1-2-3 we had to back track to see #3, several times we were asking"now where do we go and how do we get out of here." Arrows sent us outside to view sharks but it was inside. Anyway we enjoyed it, BUT FOR 23.00 each, we spent 69.00 for 1.5 hours, really would like them to price it like this... 23.00 1st adult, 15.00 second adult, kids 0-18 10.00. This is 48.00 which is still pretty high for my family in 1.5 hours. Won't be returning.

You will not spend all day here. You may barely spend half a day here. But what you will see is well laid out, great facilities, and superior to the Clearwater aquarium in every aspect not dolphin related. Easy and plentiful parking. Lots of room to handle the crowds. A wide variety of exhibits. My 5 and 7 year olds loved it.

Don't waste your time or money. the staff is rude and not much to see. I have to agree that going to the beach is more fun than seeing sickly looking , poor kept fish.This place has potential, but the rude staff brings it down.

If you have been to any other aquarium such as Chattanooga or Atlanta, do not waste your time and money. You would see more by going to the beach. They do not have any sharks and hardly have any salt water marine life! Very dissatisfied. The dolphin cruise is another waste. You can go on the smell thing out of John's Pass for a quarter of the price with free beverages.

$6 All day parking 😊 .. the park is extremely educational & fun. They have sand lots and water areas for kids to play. The food in the cafeteria is awesome! Great experience.

A bit expensive but a nice place. Have to pay for parking too. I never understood that concept...

I am really disappointed that a Family Friendly attraction would host a pro abortion event "Roe on the Rocks". You promote protecting the environment and endangered species yet you would open your venue to a group that promotes killing innocent babies. I know it is legal to do so but it is certainly not moral. How as a parent am I to explain to my children why you would support an organization that profits from murdering voiceless babies? You can be sure that The Florida Aquarium will no longer receive my patronage and I will no longer recommend to family, friends and acquaintances your attraction as a family friendly and a worthy cause to support. I hope you search your heart and listen to your conscience and do the right thing.
