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!
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.
