Dive into the underwater world at the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, located on the banks of the Mississippi River next to the French Quarter. Giggle at the antics of the aquarium’s two species of penguins as you watch them waddle around, or gobble up food during morning or afternoon feedings. Walk through a tunnel where the colorful fish of a Caribbean reef flit around you. Then see the Gulf of Mexico exhibit’s 400,000 gallon tank with sharks, rays and a tarpon, a fish that can measure up to eight feet (2.5m) long! Keep an eye out for sea turtles, many of them are being rehabilitated for release back into the wild as part of the aquarium’s conservation programs.
Looming large against the Mississippi River is the extraordinary Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, one of the top museums of its kind in America. Here the visitor finds 15,000 sea life creatures, representing nearly 600 species, living happily in a state-of-the-art facility.
The world-renown Audubon Aquarium is home to fish and sea life of all kinds – and visitors can get up close, eye-to-eye if you please, with some of the most fascinating creatures of the ocean. The Caribbean Reef tunnel, for example, is 30 feet long and allows the visitor a view of the Caribbean sea life viewed only by divers. The new Seahorses Gallery showcases these beautiful creatures as they swim gracefully between the grasses in their home and glide through the water. Remember, only the MALE seahorses give birth.
Entergy Giant Screen Theater (Now included with your admission to the aquarium!)
Next door to the Aquarium, get an all-encompassing view of the natural world through films shown on a five-story screen, one of the largest screens in the southern Gulf. Look for the theater’s rotating schedule to find out about which films are showing. All films focus on animals and the natural world.
