This place has lots of indoor displays of local fish, including HUGE indoor tanks with Sharks, and other fish. Some are interactive, where you can tough horseshoe crabs and other animals. They also have outdoor tanks with sharks, Tarpon, barracudas, and sea turtles

You can go thru the Aquarium as many times as you like for 2days, you can’t beat that. The shows and feeding times are great. Kristina was great, knowledgeable and really nice. Well worth the money.

A small place. Not a lot here. Tanks look dirty and don’t look like they are cleaned. The outside has been hurricane damaged (but will be restored ‘soon’). The touch tanks are good for small kids. I would say fine if you want to kill...More

A smaller but well stocked and maintained aquarium...short 'tours' with the feeding of the fish is a neat addition. Well worth the stop!

Don't be put off by the appearance of this aquarium! The staff and marine life you can see are what matters! The KWA has a beautiful variety of sea life to check out.

Great for kids or adults that are kids at heart. We enjoyed the interaction with feeding the sharks. Lots of turtles.

We love aquariums and have visited more than a few. This is a wonderfully impressive and educational place that one could spend hours and hours in, and being comfortable doing so.
