Visitor Information

What does a fin-tastic day look like?

Follow the flight of a free-flying bird, touch the bell of a moon jelly, cruise around Tampa Bay searching for dolphins, gaze at giant sea turtles and graceful stingrays, get soaked in The Splash Pad and so much more!

Aquarium Map

From our iconic 80-foot-glass dome in the Wetlands to the 500,000-gallon Coral Reef habitat with a gorgeous panoramic window and awe-inspiring views of sea life, there is a lot to explore during your visit. Plan your path now with our map.

In an effort to conserve paper, The Florida Aquarium no longer prints maps. We have placed QR codes around the Aquarium so guests can view the map during their visit.

Food & Beverage

You asked and we listened! In an effort to better serve our guests, we have partnered with the nationally recognized, sustainability focused SSA Group, to enhance your dining experience. Together, we have revamped our food service offerings with mouthwatering new menu items with options for carnivores, vegans and everyone in between!

Looking for lids and straws for your fountain beverage? In order to reduce single use plastics and protect our marine wildlife, we do not provide plastic, single use lids and straws.

With the safety of our animals among our highest priorities, the nature of open habitats does NOT allow for outside food and beverage to be brought into the Aquarium. Bottles and/or baby food for infants is permitted.
