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.
