Wonderful visit (again)

Very relaxed family-run aquarium. Worth the $7.75 per adult entry fee. Make sure to catch the shows to get the most out of your visit. Don't forget to feed the rays :). Great... read more

This place allows you to feed stingrays and sharks. Touch an alligator, turtles, small sea creatures, and if brave enough a snake (no thanks).

What a great experience we had with our kid. There were pools where you could touch and feed crabs, turtles, stingrays and sharks. They fed alligators, sharks,grouper and eels. You can touch a python and alligator. It's small but they also have an indoor playground next door. You could switch back and forth to catch the shows . I highly... More

Very relaxed family-run aquarium. Worth the $7.75 per adult entry fee. Make sure to catch the shows to get the most out of your visit. Don't forget to feed the rays :). Great way to enjoy some indoor time away from the shopping tourists while in Tarpon Springs.

This small aquarium is a hidden gem at the far end of the main drag. Watch a diver feed the fish. Alligator feedings daily. Feed the sharks and rays. Kids and adults squeal with delight. One admission ticket good for all day.

For $7.75 it's pretty expensive for the little there is to the place. Basically an aquarium with sharks in it and a hallway around it with a couple viewing areas for alligators, turtles, snakes and fish. Such a small place for these creatures to be stuck in. Place looked dirty and in need of some remodeling. Another small room allows... More

Small aquarium tucked in with the shops but was a real fun experience. We were able to get up close and personal with a small alligator and the staff were really friendly and knowledgeable - great place to take the kids.

Great little Aquarium for the kids, very educational since they have quick little highlights on certain fish, snakes and alligators. Really cool place to take the kids... and awesome Ice Cream Parlor right nest to it.

The aquarium is a bit small but does have a variety of species. I was amazed at the large python snakes. You are also able to touch rays , crabs and turtles.

I love aquariums and zoos but this place was disgusting! The animals didn't have enough space and it was extremely dirty!!! I can't see how they are still open. Some of the glass is so dirty that it is even hard to see in the tanks. We saw the alligator show that wasn't entertaining but sad. I wish I wouldn't... More

We paid 7 dollars each to get in a pathetic, sad place. We walked around, (took 5 minutes) and was told there was a snake show. I couldn't bare it. Snakes caged up in small glass "houses". We started to walk out when we were accosted by "SCOTT" that wanted to let us know we had to pay to get... More
