My family had a wonderful time yesterday at the St. Pete Outpost with Capt. Tim and Zach leading our tour. We live on Anna Maria Island and are big fans and met Mr. Harvey in Grand Cayman once.

We enjoyed a delicious breakfast in the Rumfish restaurant and my daughters LOVED their swim with the fishes. Zach and Captain Tim were outstanding - made it relevant and interesting for kids and adults.

The 33,500 gallon aquarium in RumFish Grill is spectacular! And you can see it from the INSIDE when you Swim with the Fishes. It's really more like floating than swimming. There's not much room to move around. But it's fun being in there looking down at the fish and out at the diners.

The adventure starts with an inside tour with a guide - ours was Captain Tim, knowledgeable & funny - who explains how the aquariums were built, what kinds of fish are in them, etc. NOTE: There are two smaller aquariums. Be sure you see them. Then you go outside and meet with a marine specialist - ours was Angela, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, obviously loves her work - who explains how they make their own salt water then shows you the behind the scenes filtration, quarantine tank, etc. All along they emphasize conservation of the seas. Then you get dressed for the swim. They provide a flotation vest, mask, snorkel and booties, even towels for drying off when you're done. I recommend a t-shirt of some kind as well. The water is a bit chilly at 77 degrees or so. It's a 10-minute swim. Long enough to get a good look at everything. The fish come right up to you. Pretty cool!

We really enjoyed it! If you are a diver or you regularly snorkel, this might be not be the thing for you other than the novelty of it. Apparently kids love it.
