  • This is a fairly small aquarium which allows you to get up close to several of the animals. The highlight for me was feeding the rays. You can buy a paper cup of pieces of fish for $3 which you put on...  more »
  • Staff was very knowledgeable and informative. Recommend the swimming with the stingrays. They were "gentile Giants" with my son. It's pricey but a worthwhile experience. Fun for all ages. 
  • We missed this place last visit so we made sure to stop in this time. We didn't do any encounters but waked around, fed sting rays, fed the Tarpon in the lagoon, watched the shark feeding and actually...  more »

  • This place was a great little adventure and very interactive! The staff is very knowledgeable and they have feedings and tours often throughout the day. You can even get in their large coral reef tank and hand feed sting rays and other fish and also feed sharks in the other tank next to it through a hole. Very neat experience and worth going to! Love how they have everything set up.
  • Great interactive adventure! The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable, the food was good and the exhibits were wonderful. If you get a chance check out the feeding times. We watched the turtles and predator feedings and they were very informative. Great place to spend a few hours and have lunch.
  • The entire facility is very open and inviting everywhere and staffed with helpful, friendly, and educated people. Bring swim suits and shorts because if you want to have the best experience for yourself or your kids, pay to actually swim with and feed the fish. You won't see such an expansive variety of species of you went in the ocean yourself and you can do it while feeding sharks and stingrays with your family in complete safety. My wife and I didn't want to get wet this trip, so we let our kids go for the swim. Because of their facilities, we could stay dry and watch the entire time as our kids were surrounded by all types of fish and stingrays. Our kids loved it and said it was their favorite part of visiting the Florida Keys.
  • Great place to interact with marine life! The staff were very helpful and informative. The Nursery Encounter is great for kids or timid explorers, while the Stingray Encounter is great for full contact. I had a blast feeding the different species!
  • It's fun place very tourist like. The kids went snorkelling and the organizers hadn't a clue on what or where we were supposed to go. Seriously it's pricey, so get your organization together please.
