Aquarium Encounters is Great!

This is a great visit for young and old to see fish, sharks, moray eels, gators, seahorses, 300lb grouper, rays, turtles, tortoises and more. You can touch the rays, starfish, urchins, horseshoe crabs, hermit crabs and other things in the touch tanks. The best experience was swimming in the reef tank to hand feed rays, angels, and even the sharks or eels through a passthru hole. Watch the video from the Tanked show for the interconnected reef and shark tank that was quite amazing.

-TripAdvisor Review

Beautiful and very well maintained facility! Fun for kids and adults of all ages! We loved the touch tanks and feeding activities through the day. Highly recommend!
