  • View tortoises, paddle fish, aquatic turtles, gulping fish, angelfish, sea urchins, giant puffers, and more your family will discover sea life from around the world.
  • Crawl through the shark tank where a clear underwater tube lets you explore inside the tank with sharks swimming all around as you're protected in the tunnel.
  • In Stingray City you can walk into the tank and get an eye level view of sea life that is one of a kind and all surrounded by the sculptures of Bob Cassilly.
