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. There are always aquarium folks around to explain and monitor what happens in the tank. The others exhibits are education and interesting as well. We recommend. Enjoy.
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!
