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.

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.

What a waste of money and time. Besides being very small, one poor sea turtle and two stingrays are confined in a very tiny kind of pool with no rocks, no plants, nothing resembling the bottom of the sea, they just keep on swimming back and forth.
Outside you will find a bunch of land turtles, again, in a very poor and sad environment, bit dirty and noticeable abandoned.
Some of the little tanks do have beautiful marine species (seahorses, flying fish, some very colored and exotic tropical fish) that seem to be in good condition and well taken care of but, at the end, you get the sensation that you were expecting something better.
It is not worth it, specially for the price!!! More than $20.00/each???!!!! In these current conditions even $10.00 would be too much.
Look for some other place and/or something else to do.

They try. It just doesn’t compare to other aquariums, is more than a little run down and overpriced.
The fish weren’t even interested at feeding time.
Manta rays swimming in a concrete pond with an inch of sand, no interesting rocks or sculptures to swim around or explore. Sad life.
