We start this travel guide with good news for those of you, who would love to get to know the underwater world of Florida, but still like to keep dry feet or get seasick easily:

In the Key West Aquarium you can admire everything else that populates the underwater world of the Florida Keys – and has been since its founding in 1932. At the time, the aquarium was the first tourist attraction in the Keys and was also the first open-air aquarium in the United States .

The aquarium is home to different species of fish, coral, jellyfish, turtles, sharks and other sea creatures. There are interactive exhibits that allow visitors to get an up-close look at the animals and learn about their habitats and behaviors.

The aquarium also features daily feedings and presentations where visitors can learn exciting information about the animals and even touch some of them. There are also opportunities to join guided tours where visitors can delve deeper into the marine world and learn about the different species and the importance of protecting the oceans from experienced guides.
