I have to echo the other reviewers who say there just isn't much to see here for the price. We got through it in just an hour and a half and even that was stretched out.
Part of the problem is that there is a...More
A wonderful aquarium right on the ocean that has a ton of interactive activities for kids. A small life saver was that they had a bag and coat check! It was so nice to put them away after walking on the pier in the rain!

We made a quick decision to check out the aquarium and we’re glad we did. Very good displays featuring river and ocean dwellers from the Pacific Northwest. We especially appreciated the staff and their ability to answer questions.

The aquarium is nice but in my opinion needs some better signage for the exhibits. It is about average size. It has a lot of hands on exhibits and docents to answer questions. I thought the best two exhibits were the underwater dome and the...More

yes we did, I particular like the sea lions, otters and certain birds are my favorite, like eagles, and owls, and a few others. No matter where I go I try to explore new aquariums or zoos or safari parks.
