  • Visited this place on Vacation in the Keys and really had a good time. Lots of interaction with the animals makes this a unique place to visit. The cost was fine, and you can spend many hours here. We...  more »

  • Made a stopover here en route to Key West, not very big, but nicely set up. Our son of almost 2 found it super fun, ran from one to the other aquarium and also found it nice to eat. It costs $20 pp Excl. tax. And if you wanted to carry the animals paid you, of course, still a small contribution for.

  • Every where we went in Marathon we were greeted with super friendly helpful people. The staff at this Aquarium was no different. Plus, they were incredibly informative. Pet their stingrays, see marine life close up and personal. I have been to aquariums where the marine life has lost their beautiful colors. Here you can see the sea life in their natual colors. Smaller but cozy. Nice gift shop too with items that are reasonably priced.
  • We pulled in to the parking lot and decided the $20 per adult wasn't worth it for what looked like such a small aquarium and drove away. I read a couple reviews as we drove and decided to turn back and give it a try. I am so glad we did. Most of the exhibits are outdoors. The stingrays loved to be pet; occasionally giving a little splash. So many turtles to watch in the open tank. Spent quite a while just watching the fish in the coral tank. Staff was friendly and informative. Great place!
  • Super friendly, knowledgeable staff who really you feel welcome and informed the whole time you are there. Really clean and well maintained facility with plenty to do while you are there. Kids thoroughly enjoyed it as did my husband and myself. 10/10 recommend!
  • It was very engaging and super interactive. The animals were easy to observe and looked really happy. The staff was very attentive and eager to teach us about the animals. It was lots of fun :)
  • We went to the aquarium today and it was a great experience. It's a smaller Aquarium but it's all our doors and it was really nice. This is a place that we probably come back to another year and visit again.
