From the very beginning, Marineland sought to provide a greater understanding of, and appreciation for, marine life. Marine Studios was not only the largest and most innovative aquarium of its time, but also the only fully operational underwater movie studio and later a renowned tourist attraction. Today, Marineland continues not only its tradition of tourism, but makes advances in the field of marine biology. Marineland is a multi-faceted attraction and continues to hold significance in different ways to different people; this project explores aspects of Marineland's groundbreaking development in science, entertainment, and tourism.
