  • You'd think the keys offered a little more than seafood restaurants and fishing charters. Luckily, the wife and I discovered this gem in Marathon. Opting out of the shark feeding through a 2" glass ho...  read more »
  • My family and I had an amazing time at Aquarium Encounters! All of the staff is very helpful and knowledgeable about all of the marine life. My two sons (ages 12 and 14) snorkeled in the Coral Reef Ta...  read more »
  • We are West towards Miami by key and asked again where you can experience what TripAdvisor. We found the Aquarium. Great little system, quite different from the mass processing in Seeworld. Created great, super nice staff. We could handle almost all sea creatures and they gave us lots of interesting information. Children were delighted as adults. Thank you for the great visit. Absolute insider tip.

  • 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!
  • Lots of fun. Fed sharks, fish, turtles, and rays. The sharks were a little extra but it was worth it. I will definitely return when I am back in the keys.
  • 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.
  • Awesome day spent with the family! Great knowledge base from associates. Ray tank rocked. The rays were very active and friendly. Well maintained facility. Would highly recommend
