The Key West Aquarium has hosted numerous special events and corporate events with clients from out of town. In order for you to plan menus and accommodations remotely, we provide caterers and rental companies for your convenience. Rental of the Key West Aquarium is for the location only. Most caterers can provide further details on musicians, florists and equipment rental. Please contact us to check date availability.

All catering and equipment rental arrangements must be contracted for separately by the individual renting the site. A professional catering service is required. All trash is removed by that company and break down after the event must be handled in a professional manner by 11:00 p.m. While we do not recommend a specific caterer or other vendor the following professional caterers
are familiar with the property and the requirements.
