  • We always search the area for hatcheries and this one was very informative. Our tour guide was experienced and knowledgable and did a fabulous job. Loved seeing rescued animals there in their forever home.
  • Family friendly and educational. Kids will love all the live exhibits. Bring a dollar bill to feed the fish.
