We weren't planning on visiting the aquarium, but after buying the Discovery Package at a discounted price, it was automatically included. It's a bit out of the way to get to, but a cute little aquarium with an exhibit outside to watch before you walked...More

The aquarium was really nice with the seals as their main attraction. There was a seal show that was super cute and the kids really enjoyed it. The other tanks and exhibits were nice but more simple. They also had penguins that didn’t look well....More

We enjoyed the aquarium very much. They had a nice selection of fish, coral, and other aquariums. We were lucky enough to catch the seal show!

The aquarium itself was clean but extremely small. It was not within a safe walking distance from most hotels especially with small children. If you pay for the discovery pass and it is just a extra activity then it is fine, otherwise I would not...More

We needed a break from 90+ temps and we found it at the aquarium. What a beautiful building! The exhibits are bright and interesting and informative. I saw things I had never seen before-fish with no eyes, live and up close sea urchins, exotic fish,...More

We stopped by the aquarium as we were checking out sites along the scenic highway. We arrived just in time to catch one of the many shows in their large center tank. The small exhibits inside were very nice and crystal clear. On our way...More

We went to the aquarium as part of the Discovery Pass bundle deal. Based on some of the other reviews, we weren't sure what to expect. What we found was a small, but nice aquarium to visit. We quite enjoyed our visit. First, there is...More
