  • Great little aquarium with lots of hands on experiences - great for the kids! Every employee we encountered was helpful and very informative. The grounds are well shaded and very well maintained.  more »
  • Experience and caress various animals (rays, starfish, sharks, seahorses, alligators, turtles) up close. Small zoo with feedings. Whole experience solala, we prefer to see the animals in the ocean

  • The Coral Reef Snorkel Encounter was amazing! We we're able to see the reef environment up close while snorkeling inside the coral reef tank. We fed the animals in the coral reef tank, including the stingrays Chip and Dale, then we got to feed the sharks in the neighboring tank! The guide that took us into the tank was very informative, answering our questions about any of the animals in each tank. It was truly an amazing experience to see this environment up close!
  • My friend and I decided to visit the Florida Keys Aquarium Encounters when our dive boat got canceled. We did the stingray encounter and spent 3 hours here. We enjoyed our visit. We learned many interesting facts about stingrays and got to feed them. As we walked around to the other exhibits, staff members were able to answer all the questions I had. If you have kids, they'll have a good time here and love to touch tanks. But please make sure your kids are gentle with the creatures.
