The Pier Aquarium

Discover our fun, interactive Fresh Fish Theater featuring live creatures from Tampa Bay and around the world. The action - and drama - never stops with our daily 1-4pm Touch Tank Experience and fish feeding. Students and teachers can experience the marine environment up close and personal through our innovative award-winning education programs on land and at sea.


Learn firsthand from marine scientists about the fish and their habitats. Watch videos about our regional fishing industry and play an interactive game about fish caught in Tampa Bay. Hear the sounds in the sea through our mobile hydrophone installed underneath The Pier.
