Loved the aquarium and family who run it!

The touch tanks are so awesome!! Feeding the sting rays and nurse sharks was something my family will never forget. Oscar, the grouper, and getting his mouth cleaned was SO unique.

Feeding the sting rays and touching them was a lovely experience. The aquarium presentation with the sharks and grouper it was very nice. For... More

The Konger Tarpon Springs Aquarium is a fun place. It looks a little dilapidated, but the kids had a blast! I thought it was over-priced, but again, the kids loved it and talked about it for days. They have a play area next door for smaller kids (aged 3-8). Overall, it was fun.

Nice little aquarium but nothing special. I kind of felt bad for the gator that was in a small area of the aquarium. Good for very young children not so much for others who wanted to get a glimpse of Jaws. Nothing really memorable but it is ok if you get tired of gift shops.

Best time to go is 11am- buy your tickets and enjoy the touch tank until the 11:30 shark feeding. Then go feed the stingrays. The aquarium only takes about an hour to tour, so then you can head out to one of the great Greek restaurants for lunch (we like Mama's!) You can find parking on the side of the... More

We went here not expecting much. Got more than we could've asked for. The shows were very educational and entertaining. The staff was incredibly friendly. We got a hands-on upfront experience could not have asked for more. And the price was cheap. We had a wonderful lovely awesome time. We really enjoyed feeding and petting the stingrays and also feeding... More

Went with family while visiting Tarpon Springs. Fun Shark feeding show and though it is a small aquarium there are plenty of sharks, groupers and tarpon in the main tank. Feeding the stingrays was fun as was the feeding of the smaller sharks. If you have a go-pro, bring it with your waterproof case and pole as you can put... More

It is very small but super friendly place. The highlight is the large tank with the sharks -- and at feeding time, a diver goes in -- that was really interesting. Also -- the touch tanks were good. You can take as much time as you want. Otherwise there really isn't much to see at all.

This aquarium has everything you want, with the added bonus of charm and attentive & knowledgable staff. I found their staff to know more trivia and interesting information than the employees of Sea World. This is a must-see if you are going to Tarpon Springs.

I love to give great reviews but I just can't with this one. This place is old and outdated. You go in and see a few sharks, snakes and fish. The kids also loved petting the sting rays (hence 3 stars). But totally not worth the $$. I maybe would have given another star if there was a place to... More
