Explore A Shore

The Florida Aquarium's 2-acre outdoor water adventure zone lets the kids cool off while parents relax under the shade of the Cantina bar and grill. Watery waves, slippery slides, gushing geysers and an assortment of animal models are just a few of the attractions for the kids. Toddlers will enjoy playing in the sand box, little slides and giant sea creature figures as they play in Shipwreck Shore. While the kids enjoy themselves, you can enjoy the comfort of the Cantina with easy viewing of the play area and table service.

The Caribbean themed family-friendly outdoor exhibit makes the perfect stop during an Aquarium visit. There are a variety of interactive areas with water elements to create an aquatic discovery zone for children. Kids can play in water jet sprays to cool off in the hot Florida sun.




Please note:  Explore A Shore closes at 4:45 p.m. each day. There may be certain water elements closed due to inclement weather conditions or annual maintenance.
