  • Today was our first visit! It was perfect for the kids (ages 3 and 1). The touch pool was their favorite of course. I appreciated the shaded areas for lunch. A few areas of the path could use some maintenance but it was easy enough to find the way. We had a great time and will definitely be back!
  • Expect and educational experience and a kind staff. I highly recommend checking their schedule and doing one the programs. We did the family field trip crabbing and had a great time. They walked us through education on different types of crabs. How to identify the crabs and interesting facts. Then we walked outside to a pier right outside the building for some crabbing. They baited the traps and directed us on how to set them. It was a great time seeing the different kids or adults catching a crab. This was a catch and release program and great for people of all ages. The aquarium is small so keep in mind that your visit should be in hopes for education as this is a research facility before an aquarium. They still had a crab touch tank and a large room of exhibits showing off the local fish.
