$700K Texas State Aquarium upgrade takes you deeper into Gulf as you tour

With its latest addition, the Texas State Aquarium in Corpus Christi offers visitors a quick introduction to the Gulf of Mexico.

A new exhibit named Nearshore opened April 9 at 2710 North Shoreline Blvd. 

It’s the first area that visitors come to when they enter the aquarium, and the water level gradually deepens as they tour the popular attraction.

The $735,ooo project is the first of various planned exhibits that will provide a “fully immersive journey into diverse habitats,” Jesse Gilbert, the aquarium’s vice president and chief operating officer said in a news release.
