  • It's cheap, and it's fun for young kids. It's only one big room and dwell time is about 30 minutes but with the touching pools it's great for kids. Worth the admission price.  more »

  • This place was great. I kept reading how people mentioned this place is over priced and I'm sorry but $5 dollars for an adult and children free was not bad at all. Especially when you're walking around a hot day with your kids on the pier it was nice to come here. My kids loved it and the staff was super friendly and nice. It's small but they have enough going on and they do story telling and puppet shows. I would definitely recommend it especially if you're with younger children.
  • A bit small, but staff were very helpful and friendly. Very knowledgeable about the fish and creatures at the aquarium. And they have a touch tank!
  • Small aquarium that survives off of donations. It's technically free but you should give them a donation because they need and deserve it. Really good for kids, you can pet the star fish and sea cucumbers and wash them feed the fish every day. They had live shark eggs in an incubator when I was here, super neat
  • Small but entertaining aquarium. Nice assortment of aquatic life. The staff is very friendly and helpful.
  • Small but cute little aquarium. Nice for a short visit while around the pier area.
