We have a first rate aquarium! My family did a behind the scenes tour and it was well worth the extra money.

Pros: It's a memorable location for a special event or wedding!

The Florida Aquarium is a pretty neat place. I spent more time there when I was younger, nowadays I tend to visit for events such as the Sea Grapes Fine Wine and Food Festival, which was a spectacular fundraising event and a ton of fun with unlimited wine pours and tastings from many of Tampa's best restaurants. The family regularly hits up the kids playground as well and the bar nearby - not bad if you're in Channelside with the kids and want to give them some play time. Parking is painless with their spacious parking lot as well. Great.

Pros: Cool events and plenty of neat displays

Cons: Price per admission can be expensive - might be better to just buy a pass if you're a regular

The Florida Aquarium is one of the must see attractions when visiting Tampa. It is also a great place for locals because they host so many events throughout the year. Not only should you check out the Florida Aquarium for its aquatic life exhibits but for their annual wine festival, beer fest and so much more.

Pros: There is so much to do around this area with the Channelside Complex being right next door. Great for the kids & the adults.

THEY HAVE THEIR OWN PARKING LOT AND A NICE PAVED WALK WAY STRAIGHT TO THE FRONT OF THE AQAURIUM

Pros: VERY NICE & CLEAN. THEY HAVE OUTSIDE PLAY AREA FOR KIDS WITH WATERSLIDES AND WATER FOUNTAINS. THEY ALSO HAVE A NICE BIG PATIO OUTSIDE WHICH I LIKE CUZ YOU CAN SEE THE CRUISE SHIPS COME & GO. I LIKE HOW YOU CAN TOUCH THE STING RAYS, STAR FISH, ETC. THE BEST THING I LIKED ABOUT IT WAS THE OUTDOOR AREA BECAUSE YOU WERE SO CLOSE TO THE FISH AND BIRDS WE COULD TOUCH THEM.

Cons: THE SMELL OF THE STING RAYS.

Full RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull Rating

Pros: Interactive exhibits, you can pet the sting rays! Beautiful atmosphere, lots of exhibits.

Cons: Pricey so check out the specials on holidays like Mother's Day or 4th of July, only $10 for a ticket after 3pm!
