At the St. Augustine Aquarium they love to educate everyone that attends the aquarium. The staff of marine biologist is very knowledgeable and can answer almost any question that might come up. The hope is that every guest leaves the aquarium inspired to make more thoughtful decisions to protect our marine ecosystems.
The new Aquarium and Snorkel Adventure has so many different adventures that you need to experience for yourself. There is an 80,000-gallon Snorkel Adventure, an interactive Shark and Stingray cover, Seahorses and Hands-on exhibits.
There are many things that are available to help you learn as much as you can. There are Educational Presentations at all the habitats at different times throughout the day. There are many touch exhibits, including starfish, urchins, and horseshoe crabs. They feed the sharks at 11:00, 12:00, 2:00, 3:00 with limited tickets, you don't want to miss out on this awesome opportunity.
A new exhibit that they are proud to hold is the new Shark Meet and Greet. Not only will you get to feed and touch these amazing creatures, but you will also learn from their friendly staff.
Absolutely amazing! Yes, the aquarium is small but very worth it. Everyone below spoke so highly of the staff and theywere righton! Every single person was so amazing with my toddler! He had such a great time! The staff was so knowledgeable and friendly!
It's small but with a lot of heart. Well worth it. We loved the stingray, shark feeding, and snorkeling with the coral fish. That was awesome. Every person wanted to share their knowledge about each of the animals. It's the type of place I'm happy to visit.
Don't miss it!
The St. Augustine Aquarium is really great! You won't want to miss coming here if you're visiting the area. This is a perfect example that you don't have to go to far away places and spend a ton of money to have fun and see beautiful animals.
Close up views!
Great little place with big plans for the future. Lots of smiling people on hand to tell you all about the creatures. It was the perfect sized adventure for my 9-year-old who had never seen a shark up close. We'll keep coming back to watch the place grow!
Had a fantastic time with friends and a special needs young adult. The staff was so friendly and accommodating! The staff is very patient with kid camps and children!
Very nice little facility. Would definitely recommend for families with children, as seeing the sharks and all the fish up close, especially when they're fed, would be really cool for them. The staff of marine biologists are incredibly helpful and knowledgeable as well!
