We timed or visit to watch the shark feeding and to see them working with the sea turtles. Well worth a visit.

Nice tanks, inmates and displays, knowledgeable staff, outside area to view turtles, educational. Bought ticket when we purchased out Conch Train tickets (not sure if this made them cheaper or not, but it was convenivent as the train drops you off outside).

The staff is very informative and friendly...not eager to step away. Hands on, and eye catching...book online, a slight cheaper price. Love coming every time we visit the Keys!

I was a little disappointed. My daughter really wanted to go but it is so small and only had a few tanks. I wouldn't do it again. Not worth the money.

This aquarium is relatively small compared to other large city aquariums but is till very interesting. Several rescued turtles live here, and their stories are fascinating. The information on marine life conservation is valuable and timely.

I should really start by saying we love aquariums and go to them everywhere we travel. And we've been to some super highly rated, impressive ones as well as lots of little hole in the wall ones. This one was built in 1916 too, so...More
