Make Today an Adventure at Adventure Aquarium

Dive in and explore Adventure Aquarium, located just minutes from downtown Philadelphia, on the Camden Waterfront and open 364 days a year.

Named one of USA Today’s 10 Best Aquariums, Adventure Aquarium is home to a diverse collection of more than 15,000 aquatic animals, including the largest collection of sharks in the Northeast. It is also the only aquarium in the world to exhibit hippos.

Experience the Underwater World Like Never Before

Come face-to-fin with exclusive attractions including Shark Realm featuring a 550,000-gallon tank alive with more than 20 sharks and 200 sea animals.

Dare to cross Shark Bridge, the longest rope suspension bridge of its kind allowing guests to walk just inches above sand tiger, sandbar, Atlantic blacktip and nurse sharks. Or venture through the 40-foot Shark Tunnel and be surrounded by dozens of sharks swimming above, around and beside you.
