Florida Keys Aquarium Encounters

Florida Keys Aquarium Encounters is the result of over 30 years of passionate work with a multitude of fish species local to the Florida Keys and Caribbean Sea. Through our Founders' close work with other Aquariums, we felt that was our duty to establish a learning and conservation center in our home of Marathon, the heart of the Florida Keys.

At the heart of our mission is the desire to successfully introduce people from all walks of life to the magic of the ocean and its majestic creatures through hands-on and face-to-face interaction. Our hope is that creating lasting memories of positive experiences with marine life will help to create passionate individuals who care about protecting the health of our marine environments.
