For a small aquarium there are a wide variety of animals inside and outside. As a Florida Keys local I am very grateful that you participate in local’s month. I will be back with company when they come to visit.

Having been to several around the country and around the world I am always interested in seeing local aquariums. The three kids loved it and we helped with the feeding of the skates & rays, the saltwater fish and the rehab turtles. The aquarium is...More

This is much smaller than other ones we have visited, but the staff did a nice job with the aquarium. It was worth it for us to be up close with the sea turtles.

I am probably less than neutral because our home city has an excellent aquarium, but this was small and average. The same employee did all the presentations during our stay; she knew her fish! Expect to spend no more than 30-40 minutes here.

This was fun although there was not a lot to see. It didn't take a lot of time to go through the aquarium. We did the combo ticket that included this attraction.
