This is a very small aquarium, but don't let that fool you. You can pet the the turtles in the front and I swear they love the attention! There is also a ray petting/feeding area. We saw the shark feeding - entertaining and educational. I wish we would've been able to see the other feedings and demonstrations. It's in need... More

It's pretty small. However, we caught the shark feeding show. It was pretty interesting and entertaining.

For just a few bucks you can enjoy this small aquarium with very knowledgeable staff. My family has made it a tradition to stop here each time we visit the area and feed the stingrays. You are able to re-enter the aquarium throughout the day, so make sure you ask for the schedule of feedings. No matter how old you... More

We have been traveling to the Tampa/Clearwater area for the last 5 years, and we always make it a point to visit this aquarium. Yes, it is small, but the perfect size for little ones to get the right experience or introduction to aqua life. They are very family friendly and offer several educational talks throughout the day with various... More

Took our 4 year old daughter here. It was $7.95 for adults and can't remember the child price - but it was a cute, little family owned place. Staff was friendly and the shark feeding show was AWESOME - at the end of the facility was a tank of stingrays and little sharks you could feed! They allow you into... More

Visitors are allowed to take their time and explore without feeling rushed. The family (staff) are happy to answer questions and offer the opportunity to feed some of their sharks and stingrays. The money they charge for the food helps them pay for those that can't be fed by the public as well. We enjoyed our visit and will likely... More

Take a break from shopping and visit this small family-run aquarium. Make sure to catch the shows to get the most out of your visit. It's educational for both young & old. Worth the $7.75 per adult entry fee

Our family consists of a teenager & a 6 year old. Our whole family enjoyed the aquarium. The staff are very knowledgeable & were good when the kids asked them questions. The aquarium is small, but very nice. The kids enjoyed the area where they could touch the animals. I highly recommend this aquarium if you are in the area!

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
