san antonio aquarium
The San Antonio Aquarium has been the premier family entertainment center in Leon Valley since 2014. We love providing once in a lifetime experiences that include everything from sharks to sloths!

The San Antonio Aquarium welcomes you to experience wildlife that earth has to offer with our unique interactive experiences.  Guests are encouraged to hand-feed some of our animals and pet with a gentle two-finger touch on their back. The San Antonio Aquarium promotes education through an engaging experience in a safe and comfortable environment. Kids and adults alike are sure to be amazed at the soft skin of our sharks and rays among other experiences.

Guests can watch jellyfish gently float and glow admiring the bright and colorful corals without leaving San Antonio’s city limits. The Aquarium offers multiple educational programs and events for kids, as well as behind the scenes tours for those curious about what it takes to keep an aquarium in good working order. We also provide additional experiences like birthday parties and our “Sleep with the Sharks” program.

We hope to inspire a new generation of oceanic explorers and conservationists through education and a shared appreciation for the world’s oceans. With over 8,000 living animals representing habitats from the Oregon shores to remote Indonesian Islands, the majestic awe and wonder of the sea is alive in San Antonio.

Local owners place a premium on the family experience, with a special interest in foster children.  Having hosted thirty one of their own, and adopting three , they understand the struggles foster families face offering free admission to foster children. In addition, we offer free admission to all families, children, and employees of Austin Children’s Shelter and Children at Heart Ministries. These organizations help thousands of families in difficult circumstances and it is our honor to host them.
