  • Spent a day here with family. Amazing experience!!! My daughter got to do the snorkeling experience in the coral reef tank and feed the fish, sharks, Etc. The instructor was amazing, making it an experience of a lifetime! All of the exhibits and touch tanks had extremely knowledge staff. Everything was fascinating. I'd pick this place over Sea World any day!!!
  • This place is an awesome place to bring the kids. Lots of things to do compared to most aquariums... actually get to interact with the wildlife and it's not over-crowded. Well kept place and definitely one of the hidden gems on the keys.
  • I took my daughter there yesterday and she had a blast. The staff was so friendly and took a lot of time with her. They are knowledgeable and very hands on. The diver in the large tank interacted with my daughter and we got great pictures. The property was beautiful and so well maintained. We plan on coming back every time we come to the keys. Thank you to the staff for making it so fun for my daughter.
  • Hidden gem we just happened upon. They've only been open for about 3 years and have plans to expand. Great way to interact with wildlife safely. Don't miss the iguanas at the snack bar, they are part of the aquarium but great fun to watch.
  • Very neat, educational experience. The staff are quite knowledgeable and you can tell they very much care for the animals in their charge. I also had to respect and admire the fact that food there does not go to waste, but to the local wild nurse sharks. Way to go!
