If you have ever wondered what it is like to touch a shark or hold a live starfish, then this ticket is for you. It will get you entrance to the Key West Aquarium, which first opened its doors in 1934 and was the very first attraction in the city.

During the day you will get closer to marine life than you ever thought possible, without getting wet. See some of the world’s most intriguing marine species, such as moray eels, stingrays, barracuda, parrotfish, tarpon, sharks, sea turtles and an array of tropical fish.

Learn about their habitats and habits from the Key West Aquarium’s knowledgeable guides, and then get a hands-on experience as you feel and pick-up the amazing animals that live in the Touch Tank. They are all harmless, gentle creatures, just waiting to get a closer look at you too!
