Oklahoma Aquarium, Jenks

#3 of 9 in Zoos & Aquariums in Oklahoma
Look for biggest bull sharks in captivity at Oklahoma Aquarium, as you walk through the underwater tunnel that was once featured during Discovery Channel's Shark Week. Feed otters, beavers, and alligators, or learn about different kinds of jellyfish. You'll have the chance to see baby seahorses, usually found wrapped around the plants in the water. You can even touch sea anemones and stingrays in the interactive exhibits. Check the aquarium's feeding schedule online before you go to pinpoint when you can watch divers feed the fish in the coral reefs and the sharks in the tunnel.

  • Great aquarium! So many different types of species to see and learn about. Spent a couple hours here. Had fun feeding the stingrays and turtles (both times we put a piece of food on the end of a stick to feed them so it was very safe and less scary then having the food taken directly from your hand). We also were able to pet the stingrays and a group of small sharks. The tunnel was my favorite part of all. It was really impressive and felt as if we were in the water (minus the getting wet part). I've been to Sea Life in Orlando, FL and was not as impressed as I was at the Oklahoma Aquarium. There is just so much more to see and do. The underwater tunnel is twice as long and opens up to a much larger dome area for viewing here at the Oklahoma Aquarium. The admission is a bit high but if you're looking for something different to do with the entire family it is worth it. My 6yr old got a kick out of popping her head up in the dome in a few of the displays and crawling around/through the kid friendly tunnels scattered about.
  • Beautiful building and enclosures. The shark tank is incredible. They are currently building a new section for octopi! Very excited about that. Offers a variety of ocean and local aquatic wildlife to enjoy. Also has several places where certain aquatic animals may be interacted with. Great for all ages.
