What To Expect
All of the animals in the Touch Tank are harmless. We encourage you to pick up and meet the animals. During the daily tours, the Key West Aquarium's collection of sharks, rays and turtles are fed, as guides explain the habits and habitats of these mysterious creatures. If you're daring, you can even pet a live shark!
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, that due to their injuries, will be permanently housed at the Key West Aquarium.
Also, The Atlantic Shores Exhibit is a cross section of a near shore mangrove environment. The 50,000 gallon tank holds a variety of tropical fish and game fish.
