This was my first time to visit the Tampa Aquarium with family and it didn't disappoint!! We spent over 3 hours exploring! There were a lot of interactive activities we all enjoyed. The 3 story aquarium was visible from each floor - WOW! I will definitely suggest other guests of ours consider going. All of the staff was friendly and informative. Our only disappointment was the splash pad wasn't on. I guess it was too chilly at 70 degrees? Our grandchild didn't seem to mind and played on the playground without complaining.

I found this site just by a Google search, but worked great. We got tickets for a little more than $10 less per person from the direct tickets through the Aquarium. Great value. We are also able to skip any lines and go straight in (other than the security line). The aquarium had a lot to see and do. They have a splash pad and playground for kids as well.

Excellent visit! My 11 year old son really enjoyed the aquarium and it wasn’t so crowded so we enjoyed all of the exhibits. The staff was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful while answering questions. Everything was really nice.

Great presentation, animals, explanations, aquariums - we had a lot of fun 🥳👍🏻

Amazing Aquarium, all the species and the diversity was amazing
