Additional Complimentary Activities
In our 161,000-gallon Key West lagoon, observe native marine species such as mangrove snappers, redfish, snook, stingrays and tarpon. It's the largest known Euryhaline exhibit of its type — where saltwater fish are acclimated to a relatively low salinity habitat. See Bottled Ocean specialists host interactive fish feedings on select days at the lagoon.

In the St. Augustine atrium, find 15 juvenile alligators and 30 species of native turtles in a habitat reminiscent of Florida's natural springs. Watch alligator feedings on select days, and learn about the species from GATORLAND.
