The Splash Pad, our outdoor kids' water play area, will close at 11:45am on Thursday, Dec. 8th and 4:00pm on Saturday, Dec. 10th. We apologize for any inconvenience.




Utilizing biofacts and activities, Gallery Ambassadors will connect visitors with our resident animals, inspiring guests to help protect these amazing animals and preserve the important habitats they call home. The Florida Aquarium offers Gallery Ambassador courses twice per year in April and September (See dates listed below). Interested applicants must be able to commit to ALL of the training classes to take part in the program.
