Roughly 40,000 gallons of water and 45,000 pounds of sand make up Sea Life Orlando, the home of over 5,000 sea creatures, including green sea turtles, jellyfish, seahorses, black tip reef sharks, and colorful clownfish. Visitors can admire sharks and exotic fish from all angles and watch rays float gracefully overhead at the Atlantic Ocean Exhibit with its 360-degree tunnel, or check out the interactive rockpool to touch starfish, spot hermit crabs, and learn about coastal rock pools.
Regular talks combined with feeding times let children and adults learn more about the animals living here—it's a good idea to schedule a visit around these feeding times, as the wildlife will be the most active during those hours.
Apart from the Atlantic Ocean, the aquarium also focuses on the more tropical Indian Ocean and delves into the marine life of the Pacific. Visitors can also learn about the aquarium's breeding and rescue programs while finding out how to help the conservation projects.
Sea Life Orlando is located on International Drive and offers free parking to all visitors arriving by car. You can also get there on the I-Ride Trolley and take various Lynx busses. Opening hours are Monday to Friday from 10am to 8pm and Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 10pm.
