At Adventure Aquarium, patrons can not only look at sharks in a tank, but be surrounded by them. The Shark Realm exhibit allows visitors access to a 40-foot shark tunnel that houses over 25 sharks, such as sand tiger sharks and sandbar sharks all within a 550,000-gallon tank. Guests can also visit the Ocean Realm exhibit to watch as the featured 7-foot great hammerhead shark swims through a 760,000-gallon tank.
Of course, Adventure Aquarium also houses a wide variety of marine animals. Penguins swim and waddle around Little Blue Beach, and the Nile Hippos can be seen at the aquarium's Hippo Haven, where visitors marvel as they plunge into the water and swim right up to the glass.
