Aquarium Encounters Tour
Interested in aquatic life? Look no further than this 5 to 7-hour delightful tour of the Florida keys aquarium, on this tour expect to enjoy a wonderful 1-hour ride of cruising through the coast of Florida until the destinated location is arrived at. Hotel pick-up is included in this package so just get up and go! it's as simple as that remember that all food and drinks must be provided by the passenger's party and there is a strict dress code enforced as this is a rather physical adventure having a decent amount of walking involved in the day and it is also recommended that you bring towels as well as a bathing suit you are sure to get wet if you participate in the tour and there is a beach that you will be onboard at some point of this tour, if water isn't your favrite thing this tour is not for you. As the tour is only available on Wednesday and Friday departure is flexible from the hotel but normally the shuttle will arrive and depart 15 minutes after it has arrived to ensure the customer has enough time to thoroughly take in all the amazing amenities that this adventure has. All entrance fees and show fees, as well as any other unforeseen fees, are covered all you need to worry about is your personal possessions as commentary as well as the self-guided tour that is administered by the riders themselves don't forget the live commentary that is also provided on the tour. In the Tarpon Basin expect to feed these fantastic fascinating fish and get direct contact as well as a up close and personal look.
