Pardon Our Puddles
Our new and exciting Rising Tides Campaign has started and construction has reached the 3rd floor. For the next 8 weeks our Aquariumania exhibit will only be accessible by stairs located in our Wetlands Trail exhibit.
Handicapped parking is available on a first-come, first-serve basis in The Florida Aquarium parking lot located north of the Aquarium on the east side of Channelside Drive.
Wild Dolphin Cruise
In order for guests to experience the Wild Dolphin Cruise, participants must be able to cross the gang plank from the wharf to the boat and back on their own or with assistance from another person in their party. Wheel chairs can be brought on board the vessel after guests have physically traversed the gang plank.
Due to changing tides, the gang plank often incorporates one or more steps to board and disembark from the vessel. Thank you for your understanding.
