A 23,000-gallon tank that holds sea bass, stingray and tiger sharks, among other fish, is one of the main exhibits, along with a 750-gallon Touch Tank, where guests can literally get a feel of marine life such as sea urchins, shrimp and spider crabs. While you’re there, check out the rest of Gardner’s Basin, which includes a marina and several restaurants.
