  • When vacations can cost you $1000's, FREE stuff is always great. Family friendly. Cost you nothing, event the parking is free. We enjoyed the 3D fish tank. Educational place. And the gift shop is even pretty reasonable, considering it's Key West.
  • So many cool things to see about the aquatics around the keys. Various tanks, a three d movie that you can stop and watch as much or little as you like...a tour was offered -and all for free! Donations gladly accepted .
