Has some neat fish. Prices not too bad. Would be great for a family with kids. Not a fan of the tide pool. Must be thousands of people a day with suntan lotion petting the starfish and such. Gift shop prices steep. As a diver I still thought it was a good experience to go at least once. They might be adding on to it soon.
Great place. It's small but plenty to see. They have most local aquatic life you might see while swimming or snorkeling off shore. Snack bar wasn't great but the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. If you enjoy this sort of thing it's a great way to spend a day on the island if you want a break from beach but might be hard to keep kids entertained if they are not into sea life.
