Touch Tank Aquarium
The Touch Tank Experience
The Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort is pleased to announce addition of the Touch Tank aquarium to the Nature Center. This new feature adds to our growing list of fun activities and provides another educational outlet for students of all ages. Enjoy a hands-on experience and learn all about the beauty and magic of Amelia Island’s complex ecosystems. Students are encouraged to touch all of the animals in the tank and discover the beauty and wonder of nature, firsthand. The Touch Tank houses an abundance of marine life including starfish, horseshoe crabs, sea urchins, oysters and mud snails.
This is a great program for all ages. Whether you feel like getting your hands wet or you just want to stand back and learn, the Touch Tank offers a fun and educational experience for everyone. The Touch Tank is available to guests of the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort and members of the public. Just call the Nature Center at (904) 321-5082 to schedule a tour. Our skilled staff will be on hand to set you up with the full Touch Tank Experience. Tours are offered on a daily basis, but we ask that you please call in advance to find out the best time to stop in. There is a fee associated with our Touch Tank Experience.
For even more family adventure, don’t forget to schedule a Segway, kayak, or paddle boarding tour. Our daily tours are a great way to explore the resort’s 1,300 acres. With one of our Master Naturalists as your guide, you’ll learn all about the abundant wildlife and complex ecology on Amelia Island. Tours can be booked at the Nature Center or online.

And while you’re at the Nature Center, remember to say hello to our “resident critters.” You can get up close and personal to all of our rescued animals including snakes, turtles and “Buddy” the Macaw. Buddy might even say “hello” back!
