  • Very friendly staff. Nature trail is very informative, bring bug spray as certain spots has very hungry mosquitoes. Gift shop has good prices, something for everyone. Picnic tables-so you can enjoy a picnic lunch. Would definitely go again. 😁
  • Great information and education about local marine wildlife. But the pricing is a bit expensive for how small the attractions are. The sea turtles are the best part. Kids did have fun. 90% of the attractions are outside in the elements. They do allow you to bring in your own food and drink. Overall okay.
