PDZA Tropical Reef Aquarium Opening Weekend

Calendar/Event Details

The Tropical Reef Aquarium, previously known as the South Pacific Aquarium, will reopen June 14 after undergoing restoration and repair of critical animal-care structures, habitats, and life support systems.

This immersive aquarium is an oasis of warm-water marine beauty, with vibrant fish, inspiring sharks and invertebrates. Look for more shark species than ever and exciting new animals in a refreshed space.

Open Friday, June 14 from 9am-4pm. Open Saturday and Sunday from 9am-5pm.

See many species of sharks, including blacktip reef sharks, whitetip reef sharks, gray reef sharks, nurse sharks, and zebra sharks. All are surrounded by colorful tropical fish, large stingrays, and a very charismatic potato grouper.

The Tropical Shallows habitat, surrounded by artificial mangrove trees to simulate a silty mud bank, is a hands-on, up-close marine animal experience. Guests are encouraged to touch invertebrates like tropical sea stars, crabs, urchins, snails, and shrimp.
