Adventure Aquarium

Adventure Aquarium, located just minutes from downtown Philadelphia on the Camden Waterfront, features one-of-a-kind exhibits and nearly 15,000 aquatic animals within two million gallons of water. The aquarium is home to the largest collection of sharks on the East Coast, including the only great hammerhead shark in the U.S., and features the longest rope suspension bridge of its kind, just inches over its Shark Realm. In order to provide safe indoor entertainment and maintain social distancing guidelines, we are reducing and managing our daily capacity. That means you’ll have even more room to enjoy the aquarium! We are requiring that all Members and guests let us know when you’re planning to come. You can make a reservation up to 45 days before your planned visit date.
