  • Great time for adults and children. There are shows everywhere. If not there is an exhibit to look at. So many things to do. Never a dull moment.

  • The dolphin shows were definitely the highlight of this place. There were some nice things about the rest of it, like the manta ray pool and the tropical birds that you can walk around and talk to. The manatee exhibit was also interesting. Overall it was a little bit disappointing, but I should have known because of the price that it wasn't going to be anything like the Monterrey Bay aquarium. But a nice way to spend an afternoon.
  • Family had an awesome visit. It was a fun day. The show was very entertaining and the staff was friendly and very informative. Will go again even if a little pricey in my opinion.
