Spring at the aquarium

The birds are chirping, the sun is shining and the sharks are hungry!

If you are traveling to the Florida Keys this season, Aquarium Encounters is a must do for the family. Hop into one of our tanks and hand feed sharks and stingrays, or enjoy the excitement of marine life from dry land. There are plenty of opportunities for the entire family to learn about the wonders of the ocean at Aquarium Encounters.

Thank you so much to everyone who came out to enjoy our Easter egg hunt, Easter weekend! We love to put together events for holidays and fun celebrations, and appreciate all the members that take advantage of each one. We hope to see you all at our upcoming mermaid event on May 11th and 12th! Watch the mermaids swim in our tank, free with general admission. Or sign up to swim with them and feed all their fishy friends!

May is here and Mother’s day is right around the corner, what a better thing to treat your mom to than a relaxing day at the aquarium. Enjoy our clean, outdoor facility; interact with our touch tanks, and watch or participate in our animal feedings! Take advantage of Buy one get one free deals, on our top two encounters for you and your mom! Hop into our coral reef tank with a snorkel, or feed our gentle gliders in stingray cove, either way mom will have a great day.

Summer is fast approaching and our summer camp spots are filling up! Make sure to call the aquarium or email info@floridakeysaquariumencounters to sign up for our dive certification camp. Spend a fun filled three days with us, completing your dive skills and participating in encounters. Open to ages 10 -18, become open water NAUI certified this summer!

We are looking forward to what this year has in store for us at the aquarium, and we are looking forward to sharing it with all of you.
