Great small aquarium.

Great little aquarium complete with seals and ability to feed the seals. It's mostly kid oriented with a touch tank being the center focus. Neat gift shop that is worth a look.

Small, old, cramped, dirty quarters for the animals - especially the seals and octopus. I wouldn't patronize this place again.

From the whale bones outside to all the fish and feeding the seals, my 6 year old granddaughter had the time of her life and wants to return

My grandchildren loved it, they fed the seals and checked out all of the tanks with the eels, star fish and many other things. The even had two hands on tanks.

This place is not huge, but has plenty species on display. The feed the seal option is nice, kids loved it especially the one seal that was clapping to get more food than the others. They have an middle size octopus and a petting area for the kids. The gift shop had interesting things too. Definitely a must to see... More

This is a very small aquarium, but the prices were reasonable and we all enjoyed feeding the seals. Although our group had mainly adults, we still enjoyed watching the antics of the seals trying to get our attention so we would feed them. I think kids would love it. Once inside it is a fairly small area and there is... More

Interesting and educational. We enjoyed all the exhibits, especially Buddy the Octopus. Parking is not too good for handicapped or partially handicapped.

A small inexpensive aquarium. The staff was really friendly. They told us all about the seals. Feeding the seals is really the highlight of the venue. The seals were hilarious hams!

Seals were bread in captivity at the aquarium. Very cute and entertaining. Inside there are many creatures to see including an octopus. He's very cool! They have folks to explain what the creatures are in the tanks that the kids can actually touch. Skeleton of a whale that washed up on the shore years ago is on display for passer... More
