When you arrive in the Tampa Port, spend your time ashore exploring a Tampa Bay attraction that opens the window to the mysteries of the ocean, both around Florida and beyond. A shore excursion to the Florida Aquarium offers a dramatic and unique look at all that swims, floats, preys and crawls in and around the deep blue sea.
The Florida Aquarium features 200,000 square feet (18,580 square meters) of beautiful exhibits full of marine animals from Florida and around the world. It’s a Tampa Bay attraction that’s sure to enhance your experience in port. Home to more than 20,000 aquatic plants and marine animals, the aquarium tells the story of water’s journey to the sea -- from a single drop of rain to the deep waters where the ocean’s top predators are found.

As you explore, you’ll see tropical fish, river otters, alligators, stingrays, sharks and more! Experience the 500,000-gallon (1.9-million-liter) floor-to-ceiling Coral Reef tank, and walk through Ocean Commotion, an interactive gallery where you can learn about the energy of the ocean. You can also meet a penguin up close or watch the children splash the day away in the outdoor water fun zone, Explore A Shore!

Please note:
This excursion is located within a 10-minute walk to the cruise port, so you determine the time you return to your ship in the Tampa Port. Please allow yourself ample time to enjoy the excursion and ensure your timely return to the port. This excursion is not covered by our worry-free policy.

The aquarium is a great place to visit and get real close to some of the interesting creatures we share this planet with. You can expect to see birds flying right by you and pet sting rays without their stingers. There are aligators, jellyfish, sharks, and all kinds of fish. The staff was friendly and informative too.

Thought it pricey for what we saw. Probably would not go back again.
