Florida is one of the country’s premier destinations for those of us who love marine life. The Florida Aquarium in downtown Tampa is among the state’s best spots to get some firsthand experience with the creatures of the deep.

Located at 701 Channelside Drive Tampa, Florida 33602, driving to The Florida Aquarium  is a breeze with a spacious van rental from Carl’s Van Rentals.

A Brief Sampling of Exhibits

The Wetlands Trail exhibit gives aquarium patrons the opportunity to catch a glimpse of some of the Sunshine State’s most beloved animals – and one of the most infamous. Clownish otters, Roseate spoonbills, and the invasive Burmese python (most infamous) can all be seen in this exhibit.

The Coral Reef exhibit simulates a 60-foot dive into an almost alien world below the waves. This 500,000- gallon tank represents one of the most diverse ecosystems on the planet and is home to more than 100 different species of marine animals.

Wild Dolphins in Tampa Bay

The Wild Dolphin Cruise from The Florida Aquarium gives visitors a chance to view these majestic creatures in their natural habitat. Without the glass-wall enclosures found at most zoos, the personality and unflappable energy of free-range dolphins are able to really shine.
