Texas State Aquarium Tours

With dozens of exhibits and an abundance of colorful sea life to call it home, the Texas State Aquarium brings visitors face-to-face with some of the ocean’s most magnificent creatures. A 400,000 gallon tank holds two of the aquarium’s most famous residents (bottlenose dolphins!) Otters, sharks, stingrays, sea turtles, and eagles all have their own habitats, while areas such as the Flower Gardens, swamp, and aquatic nursery are centered around a unique theme. The Islands of Steel offer a glimpse at local underwater ecosystems, particularly the sea life around an oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico. 

The Living Shores exhibit is especially hands-on and fun for children, while each of the aquarium’s areas offer engaging dive shows, feedings, and programs focused on interaction with the wildlife. There is a further emphasis on education and the conservation of the Gulf of Mexico. The aquarium even runs an open wildlife rehabilitation center that focuses on second chances at life for animals that are ill or injured in the wild.
