Ripley’s Aquarium Tours

Ripley’s Aquarium borders the Atlantic Ocean and is known for its vaulted underwater walkways, large tanks filled with colorful sea creatures, and live shark-feeding shows. Set in the Broadway-at-the-Beach shopping, dining, and entertainment complex, the aquarium features exhibits for visitors of all ages. 

The Basics
Explore the Dangerous Reef, home to sharks, tarpons, grunts, and other sharp-toothed predators, on a 340-foot (104-meter) moving walkway through an acrylic shark tunnel; see the piranha at the Rio Amazon exhibit; gaze at octopus, lionfish, and other poisonous predators in the Living Gallery; or watch as manta rays swim alongside other aquatic animals in the Ray Bay. 

Purchase tickets ahead of time to save hard-earned vacation time. Upgrades, including an indoor glass-bottom boat tour and behind-the-scenes tour, are also available.
