Ever wonder what is would be like to be a fish in the aquarium? Well no more imagination needed. You can now experience what it is like to be on the inside of an aquarium, with people looking in at you. The Audubon Aquarium of the Americas in New Orleans, Louisiana now offers the opportunity for visitors to dive or snorkel inside their 130,000 gallon tank. While this is not a new concept, as similar encounters are offered with other aquariums, programs like this are probably one of the only ways you will ever get to swim inside a giant fish tank. The cost varies, diving inside the tank costs $250.00, and snorkeling inside the aquarium is $175.00, which includes all gear.
