Small aquarium tucked in with the shops but was a real fun experience. We were able to get up close and personal with a small alligator and the staff were really friendly and knowledgeable - great place to take the kids.

Great little Aquarium for the kids, very educational since they have quick little highlights on certain fish, snakes and alligators. Really cool place to take the kids... and awesome Ice Cream Parlor right nest to it.

The aquarium is a bit small but does have a variety of species. I was amazed at the large python snakes. You are also able to touch rays , crabs and turtles.

I love aquariums and zoos but this place was disgusting! The animals didn't have enough space and it was extremely dirty!!! I can't see how they are still open. Some of the glass is so dirty that it is even hard to see in the tanks. We saw the alligator show that wasn't entertaining but sad. I wish I wouldn't... More

We paid 7 dollars each to get in a pathetic, sad place. We walked around, (took 5 minutes) and was told there was a snake show. I couldn't bare it. Snakes caged up in small glass "houses". We started to walk out when we were accosted by "SCOTT" that wanted to let us know we had to pay to get... More

Yes, it is rather small but it is very interesting and lots of fun. I'm 52, my son is 23, daughter 26 and granddaughter is 7 and we all had a good times. If you spend time learning about creatures in each exhibit, feeding the stingrays and sharks, watching the feeding and interaction time, you'll get a lot out of... More

This place was very small and at first I was disappointed since it took only five or so minutes to see everything. Then they started the petting of the python! I am horrified of snakes and take every opportunity to handle them in a controlled situation.Each time I do this is lessens my fear just a little. There are other... More

Fun to pet a boa, a stingray, an aligator and many turtles. We saw the employees feed sharks, medusa and lot more. They answered our questions and explained very well. Not a big place but an interesting one. (I am french speaking so excuse my errors)

This is a tiny Aquarium that was expensive for our large group. It's almost $8 and adult and $6 a child. We paid $56 dollars for our group. You could literally walk through the building in less than 5min. The first thing inside the door was a touch tank with crabs and turtles. Then there was a large shark tank,... More
