World Aquarium

Since 1971, World Aquarium has stuck to its not-for-profit mission to protect marine life and promote the public's understanding of the aquatic world through educational programs, exhibits, and research. The aquarium unsurprisingly favors a hands-on approach; visitors often get close enough to high-five the flippers, fins, or pincers of many of its more than 10,000 animals.

Tour guides wind through exhibits on sea and freshwater animals, showcasing creatures such as sea turtles, sharks, stingrays, and fish from rivers and lakes around the globe. While peering into the faithfully reconstructed habitats, visitors absorb valuable information on how to conserve water, protect aquatic resources, and peacefully resolve conflicts between Siamese fighting fish.


Although not well known, the Aquarium is a great place to take your children (and grandchildren) on a weekend.

    “It is a very in-depth tour of the care of the animals more so than a tour of all the exhibits. So if you want to just go and browse all the animals, you'll need to get a ticket for the day. The two hour Adventure Tour is AWESOME, though, and you learn so much, and you interact with animals you never thought you would get this close to!”

  • “I had a ton of fun on this tour and love the interaction our tour guide was very knowledgable and made it fun!!”
