Description
Built by order of President Roosevelt under the WPA program in 1934, this was the first attraction that this tropical city acquired and has continued to remain a favorite of locals and tourists alike as the aquarium showcases many species that are native to the Florida Keys. Admire the beauty of sea animals such as sting rays, parrot fish, sharks, sea turtles, and an array of tropical fish. Expert guides will pass on their knowledge to guests and answer any questions that you may have.

Special features of the aquarium include the hand-on experience that can be gained at the Touch Tank. Just as the name implies, visitors can roll up their sleeves and pet or hold a variety of different species such as a starfish or even a shark! Another activity that you don't want to miss is the feeding time for the sharks and sea turtles. Observe as the intimidating teeth of the most feared species of the deep chomp into chunks of fresh fish. The graceful sea turtles are also fun to watch during their meals. Finally, the Atlantic Shores exhibit is like a moving painting as colorful and tropical fish swim about in a 50,000 gallon tank!

The Key West Aquarium is committed to helping protect the endangered sea turtles. The Aquarium is associated with the Turtle Hospital and Florida Sea Turtle Stranding Network comprised of state agencies, universities, and marine parks, all working in the nursing and rehabilitation of injured sea turtles. The Aquarium is currently home to several turtles on the mend and some, due to their injuries, will be permanently housed at the Key West Aquarium.
