The Maritime Aquarium reviews
The aquarium is a nice place to visit for children and for nature hawks. It has a lot of kinds of fish and other small animals, including a large sharks tank, jellyfish and lion fish. But it does not have to much big or amusing creatures. The staff is very devoted for the care of their fish and are very helpful and know all info on the exhibits. The imax theater is really amazing. It plays like real looking movies of wild life with it's huge crystal clear screen in the height of a 6 story building and wide as 2 school buses. We enjoyed it.
How absolutely amazing. My niece had a small wedding reception at the Aquarium. The staff was unbelievably generous. The food exquisite. We brought our own music and danced in front of the shark tank. (LOL). If you are thinking of where you could have an event, consider this wonderful venue.
