Both facilities offer transient docking and guest moorings. If your crew isn’t up for the walk, bus routes run through the area every half hour.

One of Seaquarium’s oldest and most popular attractions is the shark channel where animal specialists feed a school of hungry sharks and discuss different species that live in the region.

Seaquarium visitors learn about threats to manatees in their natural habitat, including bacterial blooms, habitat loss, and boat collisions.
