Visitors to the Florida Aquarium can go scuba-diving without a wet suit at the Florida Coral Reefs exhibit. Rotate your viewer to the left and you can look into a 43-foot-wide by 14-foot-tall window and come face-to-face with sharks, rays and schools of swimming fish. Here, an aquarium guide in dive gear gives a talk.
The Florida Coral Reefs gallery is the third in a series of four exhibits that allow visitors to trace the path of a drop of water as it makes its way from the Florida Aquifer to the deep ocean. Guests walk through the Florida Wetlands gallery then into the Bays and Beaches, the Florida Coral Reefs and Florida Offshore exhibits.
