This aquarium is probably the first tourist attraction built in Key West, and the facility is a bit tired. However, the staff are extremely welcoming and knowledgeable, and made the visit very worthwhile.More

Nice little aquarium that's worth a visit if you have time. Lots of marine life to explore with hands on opportunities with sea urchins, conch, sea cucumbers and more. You can even feed the nurse sharks. Admission fee was quite reasonable.

they have all kinds of fish. We watched the feeding of sharks which was entertaining and got to see the big turtle. i would think that it would have been bigger as it is a coastal town.

It might be small but the sea animals they have there are very impressive. We watched and participated in a shark feeding and also saw a turtle feeding. Lots of fun fish to see. My 2 year old had a great time!

The ticket we had allowed us to go back the next day but I reckon 2 hours should do it if you include the shark feeding and the outside fish feeding events.
