Explore the Ocean Depths in the 360° Ocean Tunnel

One of the most fascinating sections of SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium is the 360° Ocean Tunnel. This massive glass tunnel is surrounded by thousands of gallons of water and all sorts of sea life. As you stroll through, you can say see stingrays, sea turtles, sharks, and fish swim by. Snap pictures as you go.

Change the Colors of the Jelly Wall Exhibit

Make your way to the Jelly Wall for a kaleidoscopic interactive exhibit. While these invertebrates ebb and flow with the movement of the water, you can change the color of the tank (and the jellyfish in it) with just a push of a button!

See the Top Creature Celebrities in the Indian Ocean Showcase

Believe it or not, SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium is home to two very special animal celebrities: Ted the turtle and Joy the zebra shark. Ted helped SEA LIFE develop the Turtle Excluder Device, a mechanism that allows turtles to escape when they get caught in fishing nets. And Joy was born as part of the AZA’s Species Survival Program, a dedicated effort to prevent the extinction of many of the world’s beloved creatures.

Today, you can see both of these animal celebrities in SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium’s Indian Ocean exhibit. They’ll be hanging out with a few more of their undersea friends too, like fish, turtles, and stingrays.

Touch a Starfish or Anemone at the Coastal Rockpool Exhibit

Enjoy a hands-on experience with some of the coolest creatures below the surface at the Coastal Rockpool exhibit. These micro-habitats are filled with starfish and anemones that you and your little ones can touch. Just remember to be gentle!

Take a Behind-the-Scenes Tour

To really understand what it takes to keep SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium running, take a behind-the-scenes tour. On this 30-minute adventure, you’ll learn how the staff cares for the aquarium’s 5,000 animals, from preparing underwater meals to giving regular health check-ups. If you’re lucky, you might even get to see a few baby sea creatures that are kept away from the crowds.

Dive Deeper with a Virtual Reality Experience

With the help of SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium’s Virtual Reality Experience, you can explore underwater worlds all the way in the Bahamas! After strapping on a pair of VR goggles, you’ll be able to take a boat ride through turquoise waters, sail through tropical islands, and even swim with sharks!
