Rated as one of the top 10 Aquariums in the entire country by TripAdvisor and ranked in the top 5 “Kid-Friendly Aquariums” by Parents Magazine, having the opportunity to vacation at Tampa Bays Florida Aquarium was something I just couldn’t pass up.

This particular aquarium was a bit different than the aquarium in Pine Knolls Shores of North Carolina.  For the most part, I stayed out front instead of going behind the scenes and still got quite a show.  From the jellyfish, coral reef, and bright neon colors, enjoy the following images in todays photo essay as I display some of the many exhibits at the spectacular aquarium in Tampa Bay!

I’ve always been a big fan of aquariums, especially when they are rehabilitating endangered or injured wildlife.  If you’re looking for something a bit more hands-on, you may want to check out my adventure shark diving in the Denver Aquarium.  I promise you, you’ll enjoy watching the footage as much as I had creating it!
