Take the time to visit and ask questions of the docents. They are very knowledgeable and pleasant..

Make sure to check the days they are open and the hours of operation! We went three times before we found it open! It is posted on the door and probably on their website as well, but we just did check first. Once we got in, it was great. We took our two granddaughters, 2 & 4. They loved it. The student volunteers were very helpful and very well informed. I was very impressed with them.

The venue is smaller, but GROWING! We took advantage of the SeaKidz Camp the same afternoon to dig a little deeper into the aquatic experience (an extra $5 per child). I had three children ages 10 and under and the Touch Tank and aquatic turtle habitats were the favorites. Smaller children who may lose interest in the tanks sooner can put a puzzle together or play [Velcro] tic-tac-toe with fun sea animal game pieces. VERY child-friendly, laid-back but informational environment!

Great for young children with short attention spans... There's just enough to occupy them but it's not over whelming!

It was a lot of fun My grandson loved it. He though it was better than the big aquariums because of the. Touch tank. He wants to go back. We really enjoyed it!

At Team ECCO Ocean Center & Aquarium, one of the primary goals is to get visitors excited about the ocean. To that end, the facility offers engaging educational programs and fun activities designed to enhance visits to its public aquarium, which houses blue-spotted stingrays, lionfish, and sharks. Visitors get introduced to aquatic marvels via hands-on exhibits covering topics such as marine mammals, turtle rescue, and mermaid sign language. In addition to leading onsite activities, expert staff members take youngsters on informative snorkeling trips in the Florida Keys. The facility is also great for families, senior citizens, groups, and is handicapped-accessible.
