What a nice little aquarium. I liked the fact that they had turtles that lived there that were rescues. The girl we talked to was very nice and answered all of our questions.

Liked this aquarium a lot. It's interactive, doesn't take a lot of time to enjoy and the staff is excellent. They're great at imparting the importance of conservation of marine life.

The place was so much fun, the touch tank, the talks, watching the sharks feed. I would recommend this place if you are ever in Key West, there is something for Couples and Families both with small and older children.

I had the opportunity to touch starfishes, sea cucumbers, conchs, etc. in the touch tank. I also was able to touch stingrays and see turtles and sharks. Definitely worth the trip.
