  • We loved the Aquarium. Beautiful to see all of the different fish and reptile. Loved to be able to read all about each animal. Loved walking through the sharks. And see the penguins being fed.

  • I took my family there and was not disappointed. A bit on the crowded side and a bit pricey, but definitely worth the money and time. My family really enjoyed themselves and the Penguin exhibit was by far the best and they were quite lively. The staff was very knowledgeable and you can tell the animals are well taken care of. Would recommend arriving early to avoid a large crowd, but there's plenty to see and do there. Definitely worth a visit...or multiple. Would definitely recommend.
  • Been to a number of aquariums and this one isn't terribly big but there is a fair amount of stuff inside. They had some unique sea creatures, fun exhibits for kids such as the penguin area. There a crawl space to a glass bubble to get very close to the penguins. There was a cool submarine space with buttons & knobs for the kids to play with. There was a sting ray petting/feeding area that was cool. Best of all, the Shark Tunnel was very cool allowing you to see the underside of the sharks up close. Great experience to go along with a fair price.
