Florida Aquarium Shark Tanks in 4K

no comments

This past weekend, I had a chance to visit the Florida Aquarium located in Tampa, FL for the second time. I wanted to film the shark and fish you see swimming in the tanks in a 4K video. The tickets were about $25 each and they offer different Florida habitats you can walk through and learn as you go. The aquarium gets busy so be patient as you walk through. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon in Florida on a rainy day as I did.
