    I went with kids ages 3 and 1 and they both loved it. It was just big enough for them to explore without being overwhelmed. We left bc of nap time but we were told reentry was free as long as we kept our wrist bands. Was not able get back after nap time but could have easily gone back for another round. It's mostly an outdoor experience so come prepared to sweat, so bring water. Kids 3 and under are free! Wohoo!

    It is a very relaxing place to learn about Florida's ecosystem and see some awesome wildlife. Lots of opportunity to feed and touch certain aquatic animals. See everything from small alligators to large sharks. Pet the sting rays and feed the fishes. It's an awesome place to spend a few hours. This place does offer some shade, but most of it is open air so be prepared with water. Have a blast and enjoy!

    Super fun experience for our family. Went when it was raining and still had fun I loved how interactive it was - petting the sting rays and feeding the turtles and fish. Admission price was fair too. We did not buy tickets ahead but had no problem walking right up and buying them.

    Great little aquarium! My 5yo loves it there. Really neat marine life, awesome hands-on exhibits, sweet spot by the water to relax and have a snack. My kids' favorites are petting the stingrays, watching the Goliath grouper feeding, and finding sharks teeth in the sandbox. I love that much of it is shaded. If you've never been, I plan on spending about 2 hours there to enjoy it. Took away one star because of the price (quite steep considering the small size of the facility) and because the front desk and food shack staff is very hit or miss - they are not very welcoming or helpful, often super curt, and never crack a smile.

    It was fun. Smaller than I expected but overall nice place. Lots of chances to feed and touch the marine life. I was disappointed at the 95$ price for an hour of snorkeling in a 40’ fish tank.
