I'm not even sure this is still open. Go to the one in Tampa instead. It's much bigger and better, but just a little harder to get to.

I did not go to the "aquarium" It was $5 a person for like 2 fish tanks, But they have a few reasturants and bars in this building, A Bunch of great little shops, You can feed the pelicans outside rent bikes fishing poles go on a dolphin tour boat. I went up to the top floor and had a couple drinks at the bar it was great! Saw some dolphins just sitting there very nice spot! A+++

Friends came to town and we stopped at the Columbian Restuarant to take in the sights and sounds of St. Petersburg. Food and Beverage were more reasonable than I expected.

Though a small education center on the second floor of the Pier, lots of neat tropical fish with educational information at each tank. when it relocates it will be 5 times larger, I was told.. many beautiful fish.

I went here as one of my vacation stops. I would not make a special trip to go here. a few basic shops and restaurants. There is really nothing to do unless there is a special event or band playing. The view was nice. Aquarium small and not worth the money. The same fish you can see at a pet store.
