This aquarium may be small, but if you simply travel around and listen to the short presentations every 15 minutes, you get an amazing experience and learn a lot about the local marine life. The best part was seeing the feedings, helping with the feedings,...More

Pet friendly for leashed well behaved dogs. Needed indoor activities to get away from hot summer sun, this small but very nice aquarium fit the bill. Good for kids too. It would benefit from make-over but it’s a reasonably priced form of entertainment and tickets...More

We wanted to see the aquarium and was surprised how expensive it was and how small. Only two open tanks in the middle and closed tanks surrounded the room. Two turtle spaces outside and one outdoor tank before the exit. They seem to be remodeling...More
