Key West Aquarium – Perhaps one of the most unique aquariums in the world, the Key West Aquarium has delighted visitors since 1934. Open for business during the Great Depression, the Aquarium was Key West’s first attraction. The Aquarium was built between 1932 and 1934, and was a major part of Key West’s attempt to stage an economic recovery by advertising their city as “America’s Caribbean Island.” Today, Key West hosts millions of visitors and the Aquarium showcases marine life indigenous to the Florida Keys. Discover the undersea world at the Key West Aquarium. A Window of Wonder comes alive as expert guides explain the mysteries of the water surrounding the Florida Keys. Daily shark and turtle feedings and the Touch Tank offer guests hands on experience with sea life. Don’t forget to check out our Alligator Exhibit as well as our Stingray Bay where visitors can pet and feed cow nose rays! The Aquarium features a wide variety of fish including grouper, moray eels, barracuda, tropical fish, tarpon, sharks, parrot fish and much, much more.
