Know Before You Go

As soon as you arrive, get a daily Keeper Talk schedule, and plan your day around it!  I love the Keeper Talks, they are very informative!

No outside food or drinks allowed.  You can bring one bottle of water per person.

Strollers are allowed.

Arrive early in the day, when the animals are more active.

In addition to fish, there are lots of birds!

The kids were allowed to help feed the birds!

On our first walk-thru, the jaguar was asleep in it’s “room”, but we made a second tour and were delighted to not only find the jaguar out and about, but many other animals we missed the first time!

History

Not many aquariums have a history, but the DWA is unique in that when choosing a site for the new aquarium in 1992, they chose to not raze the two historic 1920’s warehouses that stood on that location, but rather to renovate them to fit their needs.  Today you can see the old exposed brick peeping out from behind cascades of tropical plants.
