Atlantic City Aquarium

The Atlantic City Aquarium (aka Ocean Life Center) is a family-friendly attraction that is open year-round. Here you can enjoy and learn from exhibits containing fish that inhabit the marine and freshwater environments close to Atlantic City, as well as some more exotic locales such as tropical rainforests, the Amazon River, and the Pacific Ocean. There is also a live diver feeding show from the "Fish of the Mid-Atlantic" tank, which contains nurse sharks, dogfish, and other species.

The Aquarium is located at Historic Gardner's Basin, which has several other attractions, including an arts and crafts colony, cruises and fishing boats, shops, and cafes.
