NOTICE: The Aquarium will close at 4p.m. on Friday, Oct. 16 for our Brews By The Bay annual fundraising event.



An Economic Engine for Tampa Bay


 Widely considered one of the best venues in Tampa, the new event center and exhibit space will enable the Aquarium to:

  • Host large, world class events and exhibits to bring fresh offerings to the public
  • Significantly increase revenues with a large venue and gallery space to support our conservation, education and animal rescue programs
  • Add training and dive facilities to bring more of the underwater world to the public
