Audubon Aquarium of the Americas
#1 Canal St
Located on the Mississippi River adjacent to the French Quarter, the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas immerses you in an underwater world. The colors of a Caribbean reef come alive in the walk-through tunnel, while the penguins and Southern sea otters enchant you with their antics. Touch a sting ray, feed a parakeet, and marvel at the gigantic sharks, tarpon, and rays in the 400,000 gallon Gulf of Mexico Exhibit. Watch for sea turtles throughout the Aquarium—as coordinator of the Louisiana Marine Mammal and Sea Turtle Rescue Program, the Audubon Aquarium prepares many of them for release to the wild.
