At the Atlantic City Aquarium we love groups!
The wonders of Atlantic City’s popular attraction the Atlantic City Aquarium await you on the waterfront in Historic Gardner’s Basin.
The Atlantic City Aquarium has more than 30,000 gallons of seawater and 100 varieties of marine life indoors for your viewing and learning pleasure. While touring the aquarium your group will experience oceanic thrills and chills throughout their tour.
Group members will enjoy a visit with Groman the Giant Loggerhead Turtle, local marine inhabitants in the Fish of the Atlantic Ocean and Mullica River tanks and more exotic species in the Coral Reef, Seahorse, Moon Jellies, Moray Eel, Terrapin, Bearded Dragon, Clownfish & Anemones, Tropical Rainforest and Ocean Oddities tanks.
For more hands-on experience, they can interact with additional sea creatures in one of the aquarium’s Touch tanks. Seeing, touching, feeding and learning—you’ll find that a visit to the aquarium is fun and educational for children of all ages.
*Expand your group's visit at the Aquarium and request a front row seat to our “Dive and Dine” live dive show. “Dive and Dine” features a diver in the aquarium’s 25,000 gallon “Fish of the Mid-Atlantic” tank. Audiences can watch and interact with the diver as he hand-feeds cownose rays, swims with nurse sharks, and dives with dogfish in the tank. Participants also have the opportunity to interact with the diver asking questions during the show. This underwater picnic is included with your group tour of the aquarium.
*Advance reservations for the “Dive and Dine” show required.

If you want an ordinary shopping experience, hit the mall. If you want cozy shops where you can find breathtakingly unique items and actually witness their creation, stop by the Crafters Village in Gardner’s Basin.
“You can step back in time into a quaint village where artists work side-by-side in twelve charming cottages situated along the beautiful waterfront of Absecon Inlet. The village, while surrounded by seagulls and sailboats, affords guests the opportunity to stroll along the marina and watch the artists at work. The open barn doors invite you in to take a closer look. Once inside, you can choose to purchase anything from garden art to wearable art, as you savor the salt air and enjoy the view,”.
