The Gulf Coast is obviously a marine-rich environment, and some 500 species from here and further afield are collected at this impressive aquarium. A reconstructed Caribbean reef and model oil rig are among the highlights of the facility, with the Amazon Rain Forest, seahorse galleries, and penguin exhibits seeing children and adults crowding around them eagerly. The Mississippi River and Delta Habitat is a great opportunity to learn about the immediate geography, and even has its own resident white alligator. Hands-on, behind the scenes special experiences are available for anyone with an interest beyond checking out the fish.
