Travelers, this is an affordable, family friendly aquarium that is a lot of fun and educational. There is a tank where folks can pet baby sharks and rays. I love petting the sharks and the rays.

Very cute and lovely aquarium! Well taken care of and super nicely decorated. You can tell everyone loves the animals that works here. I really loved seeing all the places for kids, it's great having kids learn to take care of our oceans! The staff was extremely kind and accommodating. I especially loved the divers, and the snakes!
