Our kids loved it

I think our kids had more fun here than Clearwater..and it was much cheaper! Probably best for younger kids. It looks small and not much from the outside but our kids really... read 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 This place is old and outdated.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

This is a tiny aquarium. They were feeding the alligator turtle & gator when I arrived. The diver went into the tank to feed the fish (but I've seen that lots of time) there's a few tanks with eels etc. Its not the cleanest but the animals looked well cared for. I spent less than a hour there. No food,... More

I had read about the Konger Aquarium and wanted to take my grandkids there so they could feed the sharks. It was soo much more than that. When we got there, boxes of huge snakes were being sunned on the sidewalk. The boys were in awe. When we walked inside there was a huge water tank filled with various fish... More
