Adventure Aquarium

Discover Life... Underwater! Adventure Aquarium is just a few minutes from downtown Philadelphia on the Camden Waterfront and features one-of-a-kind exhibits with more than 8,500 aquatic species throughout two million gallons of water. Adventure Aquarium is home to the largest collection of sharks on the East Coast, including the only Great Hammerhead Shark as well as Silky Sharks on exhibit in the United States, and the only aquarium in the world to exhibit hippos. Come face-to-face with penguins, turtles, stingrays, and so much more! Experience free daily shows and up-close animal experiences all included in your Adventure Aquarium admission.

Believe in the possibility! Back by popular demand, guests will enter the magical world of mermaids this fall for a limited-time engagement at Adventure Aquarium! Experience the mystery of these fabled sea-dwelling performers for two weekends only, October 29 - November 1 and November 5 – 8, and prepare to be mesmerized by the one-of-a-kind acrobatics of these incredible mermaids, who will frolic underwater in our 760,000 gallon Ocean Realm exhibit. Enjoy daily appearances by mermaids in colorful fish-tailed costumes and meet a LIVE mermaid up close and out of the water during daily meet and greets.

Christmas Celebration is here once more! From November 27 – December 31, experience the magic of the holidays at Adventure Aquarium’s annual Christmas Celebration. Meet and celebrate with iconic Christmas characters like Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Bumble the Abominable Snow Monster and the Aquarium’s very own SCUBA Santa!
