The largest indoor aquarium guides the viewer through the world's many marine habitats, from the entertaining colony of Falkland penguins to the exotic Amazon. Watch divers as they feed sea turtles, stingrays, sharks and tropical fish in the Caribbean Reef's circular viewing tank. A perpetual highlight is the Oceanarium where dolphins and beluga whales spread their infectious joy. Finally, the towering Wild Reef tank creates the feeling of being underwater. Get close and eye the sharks of several feet gliding above. For an even more personal experience, schedule a penguin encounter where you'll be introduced to one of the penguins and get close enough to touch its sleek, slick feathers.
