"Coral Sea Dreaming," a beautiful film about reefs, will show in the Aquarium’s Theater from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday -- April 12 to 14 -- and then become part of the weekly movie rotation and show each Tuesday.

About the New Exhibit

More than two hundred colorful fish transform the old Eel Cave into a vibrant walk-through reef.

Immerse yourself in this exhibit where nearly 80 different species of fish dip, dive and glide past bright artificial corals. Learn about the people who depend on coral reefs, which are facing serious threats worldwide, and be a part of saving these vanishing treasures.

Large eels and groupers are now in the Shark Tank.


Included with admission.
