  • Great aquarium and very good representation of the importance of caring for our oceans. I see a couple complaints on here about not having a "touch pond" where kids can just freely poke sea creatures or whatever. I happen to love the fact that this place does not have anything like that, I think it's smart to provide a clean and sanitary environment for everyone and I think it's more respectful to nature. My Only complaint is that the gift shop had some pretty pricey items, specifically some of the wooden-like jewelry boxes that had chips or scratches in them were still priced very high. The decorative pictures on the top of them didn't even look like they would last, some already faded in color.

  • This place was awesome! They did a phenomenal job with the layout of the entire facility. It almost had a surprise around every corner, which get the flow and interest going. Extremely well maintained. I have been to a lot of aquariums in my day and have never seen cleaner tanks to hold all of the fish. The water was crystal clear, and I sure they fish appreciate that as well.

  • This was definitely a fun place to go. We loved the face painting lady that was there when we went. The exhibits were educational and fun. It is a pretty big place and we easily spend a few hours here. The gift shop prices were definitely high and we didn't purchase any souvenirs for that reason.

  • Great place to take your family to. Lots for everyone to see and lots of fun and games. Inside was just as fun as the outside. Only down fall was the gift shops prices. A little too high for small items for the kids. Would like to go again. Easy 2-4hrs of walking around looking at all they have to offer/games

  • Great place to take the family! ! Favorite exhibits are the sea otters and the passages of the deep (shark tunnel) you can walk through the whole place in about 3 hours, or linger longer. Great gift shops. We saw a 10 minute show with a rescue pelican which my kids and I loved! For an extra $35 you can get kissed by a seal at 2pm, which I'm definitely coming back for! ! Cost to get in is high but it's for a great cause. ..rescuing sea life and educating people. Show your AAA card 4 a small discount. Great photo opps along the way! When you come out of the shark tunnel take a pic in the huge shark jaws!!
