Safely Interact with Stingrays in the Shallow Tank
Personally interact with stingray species from the Florida Keys and Caribbean
At Florida Keys Aquarium Encounters, our Stingray Encounter enables visitors the ability to get in our shallow water tank with our diverse stingray species in a safe environment all with education from our professional marine biologist.
During the encounter, our professional marine biologist will teach our visitors about the stingrays while the gentle rays explore the tanks within reach of you and your family. During the Florida Keys stingray encounter, visitors will be able to feed and pet stingrays when they come swim up on your lap, while on our underwater stingray bench. Please note that for the safety of our visitors, barbs are trimmed on all rays.
