What do you want to do today? Pat a shark? Um….yes! But don’t worry – they’ll be small…
Tarpon Springs Aquarium not only lets you witness the beautiful creatures we have in the ocean, but touch them as well! The super cool touch tank lets you stroke the beautiful shark, or feed those cheeky gliding stingrays.
Four times a day you can see divers come face to face with over 30 stunning species of the ocean in their 120,000 gallon tank. Watch as these divers interact with the docile nurse shark, the protected Jewfish, the tarpon or the bonnet head shark….these shows are narrated and great for the whole family to learn about the ocean, its creatures, and their habitats.
Pop quiz – do you know what a tarpon is?
The aquarium is also home to slippery eels, lobsters, beautiful live coral, and those funny looking anemones we all love to find on the beach!
Don’t forget to check the feeding times for the sharks and aligators too – you don’t want to miss those!
If you are really interested in the aquarium, you can plan ahead and arrange a guided tour for your group with a very friendly and knowledgable staff member, who will also make sure you are there for tank feedings and demonstrations.
See the beauty of the ocean for yourself!
