Our Family


The Family at my recent wedding. The family business keeps expanding!

The Tarpon Springs Aquarium has been family owned and operated since 1990. Currently, the aquarium is run by me, Grant Konger along with my Dad, Scott Konger, and my sister, Paige Konger-Henry. My Uncle, Jeffrey Konger, and my austistic younger brother, James Konger, also help out routinely. Come meet us!

Come Explore!

The Animal Sanctuary

The aquarium began as a way to show and educate the public about our native Florida wildlife. However, we have also had the opportunity to take in many unwanted pets and rescue animals over the years. Now, all of our reptiles, birds, farm animals, and many of our aquatic animals fall into this category. Please understand a few of our animals may look unhealthy, but are, in fact, in recovery from their previous situations. Come meet one of our rescued animals today!

Many of our rescue animals need extensive care. This is Tortellini who needed surgery in order to be able to walk again.
