Very small “aquarium” and not worth the price. The kids enjoyed seeing the fish but we have been to much better aquariums. Something to do but not worth it.

This was a tiny aquarium with many empty or off exhibit tanks. Honestly it wasn’t very clean and very disappointing. Don’t waste your money. The only redeeming factor is that hopefully the money spent feeds the few turtles and fish we did see.

I loved this aquarium! In all the times we have been to Key West we had missed it! So glad we went this time! The staff are so helpful answering questions and you can tell they really care for all their creatures! I and loved the turtles that they have!

It was a little chilly one day so we decided to check out the aquarium. It's pretty small but we enjoyed our visit. We were able to catch all of the talks given and enjoyed hearing what the staff had to educate us on. I wouldn't hesitate to visit again. I think when we walked up to buy a ticket it was actually valid for two days. it's not a huge place by any means but a great activity to discuss marine life around Key West.

Saddest place in Key West. The fish tanks are so small that it's depressing to look at these poor animals. Some of them barely fit in the enclosure and some have injuries from rubbing against the glasses so long. I can't believe this isn't considered animal cruelty!

Not very big but very educational, with a variety of animals and lots of short programs to learn about. It was easy to get around without getting lost or missing something.

Great tour guide for this experience! She was so knowledgeable and had a very pleasant personality with a great sense of humor! Beautiful aquarium with so much to see! Highly recommended!

The aquarium is mediocre and small. It would probably be a decent value for half the price. There isn't a lot to see. There was a very short tour that culminated in a shark feeding, but no shark surfaced to be seen. Folks were friendly and the LCD screens were informative. But I think the aquarium in Marathon is much better.

Great little aquarium. We were there for the turtle, stingray and shark demonstrations. Plenty of fish and marine life from the local area. They stressed the importance of getting rid of the Lion Fish who destroy the coral reefs.
