  • What a fantastic aquarium, expecting something on a smaller scale . This place is "Huge", expect to stay here least two hours. Well maintained and staff super friendly. We had one incident when my Grandson took a spill and hit his little head. Staff came over and was very helpful settling him down. And a quick shot out to the volunteers, like Howard who helps out on Tuesdays. Thank you for service to this wonderful aquarium. There are also outdoor activities which require a harness for safety.

  • Exactly what you would expect of an aquarium. Cool exhibits with lots of interactive educational stuff (probably designed for kids, but much enjoyed by my group of adults in our 30s & 40s)! The 3D movie was great too... I recommend seeing one of those if you have time. We saw Turtles 3D and it was entertaining & educational, with good 3D effects. Most of all, don't miss your chance to pet the stingrays! (Your arm will get wet, so wear short sleeves.)

  • I had a wonderful time. The animals seemed well kept and happy. The tanks are large and the facility spans 2 buildings with a .25mile nature walk between them. It's a bit warm in the "marsh" building but a lot of reptiles are kept there so it is understandable. There is a touch tank with rays in it, although it is small and stays crowded. I loved the otter exhibit. Good representation of Virginia wildlife.

  • It's very nicely done and lots of small exhibits. But you do pay a good amount of money for a smaller aquarium. They have another building but it's a drive or a 15 minute nature trail walk which isn't ideal when it's 90 degrees and you have young children. It can get crowded very fast in the summer months but all the staff are very friendly and knowledgeable.

  • The aquarium is average in size compared to some other aquariums I've seen in the United States. I was honestly expecting to see a bit more in the exhibits. I took the dolphin tour and it was an amazing experience. Got to see a few dolphins swimming close to the main beaches near the Virginia Beach boardwalk. On a hot and steamy afternoon, I had to walk from the main building to the marsh pavilion via a long boardwalk that stands above a marshy area. The walk isn't so pleasant when the weather is too hot.
