Adventure Aquarium




Recently we were given the opportunity to visit Adventure Aquarium in Camden, NJ. The kids and I were so excited to make the trip, especially since it was our first week off from school...

...And we were given the chance to visit & learn about Mighty Mike the alligator. 


Not just any alligator but a 14 ft. Gator weighing in at 800 pounds!



After meeting Mighty Mike we ventured outside to meet one of the aquarium's newest penguins...so adorable. 


Oh and did you know the seal tank is gone and replaced by this cute little Critter Courtyard?


Then we went back inside to visit our beloved Sting Rays. The kids loved petting the rays. We visited with them several times throughout the day (and there are opportunities to feed the sting rays).



Then on to our next favorite area....

The Hippos....

And shark tanks....


All in all it was a fabulous day!  Great place to escape on a rainy day or hot & humid summer day. The kids loved exploring and learning about all different kinds of sea life. Even the baby was fascinated by the fish. The aquarium provides a different experience every time you visit. 

Oh and my tip....they have a Nursing Room by the 4D theater!  As a nursing mom I was thrilled to find this little gem. 



And finally, do not forget about the fabulous photo op of the Philly skyline outside of the aquarium....

Do you have any tips to share?
