What is there to do?

It's time to explore the amazing waters we have on our planet - and to do so in New Jersey you don't even have to get wet thanks to Atlantic City Aquarium!

Atlantic City Aquarium is where you can discover the magic of what lies beneath our waters through various exhibits filled with colorful and amazing species. 

There is SO much to keep the kids entertained! There are tanks filled with exotic fish, as well as touch tanks where you can actually FEEL some of the starfish, and coral. 

The Fish of the Mid-Atlantic Ocean exhibit is 25,000 gallons of New Jersey sea life, from rays, snapper, grouper, and even a Loggerhead Sea Turtle!

Ocean Oddities is just that - the weird and the wonderful that call the ocean home. Can you recognize anything in there? Some might just surprise you!

There is a whole tank for Moray Eels, where they come in a range of sizes, colors and patterns, as well as a Live Coral Tank where you can learn all about the amazing coral reefs, and what that means to the marine species that live there!

And yes, there is a shark tank! The Tropical Shark Touch Tank let's you actually get up close and TOUCH these sharks! Often found in tropical waters of the Pacific, don't worry - they won't bite!

Kids can marvel at the Jellyfish and why they can be quite painful if stung, and see amazing colorful Clownfish - yes, just like in Finding Nemo!

From animals that live in rainforests, to rivers, and even Piranha's, Atlantic City Aquarium is filled with amazing creatures that will keep the kids learning, and entertained, for your next New Jersey family day out!
