Be sure to be present when they feed the fish in the unexpected large and good tank for this small, family run aquarium. The information conveyed by the staff is quite interesting and informative to adults.

I've gone back and forth as to what I should say about this "Aquarium". It's REALLY small. Nothing like I had expected. It's set along side of other small shops in a strip mall which should also give you an indicator of just how small this actually is. Here are my thoughts so you can form your own opinion. 1)... More

It was a small aquarium but enjoyable. We have been to larger aquariums so we weren't really impressed. Young children would enjoy it more I think.

Literature indicates to give 30 minutes minimum. We were done in less than 15. The first clue should've been the $7.00 admission. We weren't expecting Sea World, but geez. It's very old (definitely in need of a renovation). Dark. Smells. Felt sorry for the animals.

Like others we needed a place to escape the Florida midday heat. Our kids had a ball with the hands-on displays. We were able to feed the manta rays for a small additional fee. The feeding time in the main aquarium by a scuba diver was worth the price of admission. It was very well narrated and fascinating for kids... More

We went here on a hot day where we needed to get out of the sun. Price was reasonable and also included entrance to a bounce house next door. This a definitely a small aquarium (nothing like a big city aquarium, but that isn't a bad thing). You don't have to spend all day but easily can spend an hour... More

Although the facility is small, it provides great opportunities to interact with all sorts of marine life. There is a large touch pool and other pools where you can feed sting rays and sharks for only an extra dollar. It is definitely worth watching their diver feed the larger fish and sharks in the main aquarium. She put on quite... More

This small aquarium in Tarpon Springs is perfect for young children to learn about nature and sea life. The touch pool is perfect for kids. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about sea life. Our greatgrandson was so excited, and our younger grandchildren also liked it very much as well. We make sure to take family there when they... More

Great experience; especially the staff. They were all down to earth, friendly, very knowledgeable. The great thing about this home town aquarium, was that there was a lot of interaction with the marine life.

This aquarium is smaller and older than most aquariums’ I’ve visited. Even though its age is showing, discolored tank windows, it does have some interesting species swimming in the tank and offers a touchy feely session with a live baby alligator. This may not be the greatest aquarium, but the important thing to remember is that the children seem to... More
