  • I took my 2 year old granddaughter who absolutely loved it. It is a very nice place and pleasant to visit with small children. The exhibits are well done and within small walk of each other which make...  more »
  • It is a nice, clean place, but there is too much commercialism. The displays are good, but many of the talks are peppered with advertisements for their paid encounters. Skip at the touch tank is very ...  more »
  • We decided to try this little place instead of going to one of the bigger ones around, and boy was that the right decision. We ended up spending a day and a half there! The first day my two girls went...  more »

  • Came here with 4 other people from 18 to 70 and we all loved it! We did the general admission and it was worth it. Being able to touch sting rays and other sea creatures was amazing! If ur in the area I would definitely stop here.
  • A Combination of Seaworld and Disney wrapped in one. What a great place to learn play swim and connect with your Family. A must SEA (no pun) :-)
  • Amazing staff! Not cheap but worth it. My daughter's did the reef and shark encounter and loved it.
  • Amazing place! Beautiful environment, many different varieties of fish. There's rays, sharks, a touch tank, etc. You can do encounters like touching the sharks or sitting with rays, watch feedings, dig for shark teeth, and much more. There are highly intelligent and interactive staff to guide you and answer questions, and even a "find and seek" paper with a prize at the end! There is a cafe and gift shop for everything you need, with excellent food and jewellery; they even sell pet hermit crabs! I would highly recommend this place to everyone, even locals enjoy it, and its fun for people of all ages! There is always something new to see. Also, locals and veterans get 10% off.
  • Great place with very friendly staff. They even have a wild iguana that hangs out around beach and trees.

Where to stay in Marathon

A large resort is an ideal choice for a family vacation. These vacation complexes often have a pool and provide a wide range of activities to keep children entertained. Marathon’s small hotels or inns are good options for a more romantic break. Renting a private waterfront vacation property provides a luxurious home away from home for those with time for a longer visit.
