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

Perfect for my family, my kids love this place because they get to feed stingrays and sharks and pet turtles and alligators also because of Puffys Playground. If you're looking for a fun, interesting and very friendly staff, def stop by this little gem.

I have brought my son to the aquarium many, many times. To be clear, it is not a big place. But, for close-up views and a personal experience, you can't beat it. There are interesting fish, reptiles and various creatures. My son enjoys feeding the sharks and stingrays. It's usually good for an hour to an hour and a half... More

We visited here in April 2014. This place was great - the owner and his wife were VERY knowledgeable about all the animals they presented. The feeding times schedule was posted outside and the hands on/petting tank was right inside the front door. The location itself is a little aged, but you're not there for the building, you're there to... More
