About the Aquarium

Take an expedition from the coral reefs of the Pacific to the Amazon Basin and the Rift Valley lakes of Africa by visiting the Kipp Aquarium! Home to over 200 species and 2,000 individual fresh and saltwater fish, as well as marine invertebrates, you’ll be sure to find a new favorite underwater animal here. As you enter, see a flooded Amazon forest filled with huge stingrays and gigantic catfish – but be careful, as a large school of piranhas is close by! Explore a little further to see a rescued sea turtle swimming with other amazing fish found in the Gulf. Be sure not to miss the bright green moray eel, giant pacific octopus, sharks, and the delicate, beautiful moon jellyfish.
