Recommended Ratings & Reviews
Comments : 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
Comments : The Florida Aquarium is more than an aquarium as they offer boat tours, lots of activities for kids, and much more. There is also a lot of great fundraising events that happen at the Florida Aquarium.
Pros : Great aquarium with lots of fun activities
Pros : This is an educational place for everyone to learn. Staff was knowledgeable and friendly. This Florida Aquarium has a lot of different activities for all ages. There is also a wet play area for everyone outside.
Cons : You might get wet!
Comments : 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.
Comments : 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.
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!
