We went there and they pump in the water from the Gulf. It's a small aquarium, perhaps family run, but the tanks are great and it's worth the visit. My husband was a commercial diver for 20 years, and he usually remarks on the health of the fish in the tanks. At other more expansive places, he has told me... More

i like the aquarium and its small. you'll see small gators, snakes, and fish, there are also rays that you can touch. thats about all you expect to find and you wont be disappointed. prices for the attraction are to high for the minimal attraction

The highlight of this aquarium was being able to feed the rays and the sharks food! Well worth the nominal extra cost. The staff is very knowledgeable and we learned things here that we had not learned at other larger aquariums. A great little gem, right on the docks!

We didn't know what to expect so we had no pre conceived ideas of what we would see. Lots of big fish in the tank, Grouper, Shark, and a host of other species. It was interesting to watch the diver feed the fish. They also had some very huge snakes in glass cages and even an Alligator.

This is a great place to take a break from the sun and see some Gulf Coast animal life up close. I've been to the Monterey Bay and Oregon Coast aquariums (and a couple of Sea Worlds), and certainly Tarpon Springs is a much smaller and simpler production than those and many others. However, I don't travel across the country... More

This is just a tourist trap. We had a bogo offer so we went. It was really a joke and would never go back.

We went in here with no expectations. Actually, I needed to use the bathroom. What we got was so much more. First, the staff was incredible. We entered right before closing and most staff would be hurrying you through and rolling their eyes. This staff acted as if they had nothing better to do than educate our children and point... More

Enjoyable place to just walk around and enjoy the history of Spongers in our Bay area.It was exciting to take people who have never been in the area to see things as the touch tanks and see the snake & alligator areas. I know that a couple with us were planning on returning to show it to their granddaughters.
