Awesome place. Great staff. Plan on spending a day. We shorted ourselves and wished we had more time. So many cool things to see and do. Plenty of interaction for the little and big kids. Can't wait to plan a return trip. Don't miss this attraction
Our family went for the first time. We will go back again. They have so many animals. The exhibits are very nice. We didn't expect to see so many birds and the lemurs were so cute. We did the boat and admission combo. It was well worth it. The boat gives a great visual and informative tour and we did see dolphins along with many other animals. An added bonus is that the staff is very polite.
This is a wonderful place for a quick and educational visit. Every employee is wonderful, helpful and very eager answer any and all questions. I highly recommend signing up for a special tour. The only downside is that it is pretty small. Without the extra tour I got, it probably would have been an hour or so visit. However, for those who have little kids it seemed to be fantastic. With all the hands on activities and the splash pad, one could be there for quite a bit longer. Overall fantastic, just wish there had been more of it!
Lots of cool things yup do with the family. The kids loved being able top touch the different sea creatures. The live show was a lot of fun and educational. My wife add I loved that you can call a number to hear more about certain animals. Great place for family fun.
Excellent aquarium! We were very impressed by the exhibits and how well cared for everything was. We have kept saltwater and freshwater aquariums before, so we always look at the exhibits with a critical eye (and some other places have been downright shameful!). We did the behind-the-scenes tour, and while it was mildly interesting and not too expensive (~$8 per person if purchased as a combo ticket online), I don’t think I would do it again. My only disappointment was the lack of a penguin exhibit. They offer a “meet the penguin” experience so I assumed they would have penguins on display; there was a section of the aquarium under renovation so perhaps it will be a penguin exhibit in the future. But as of our visit in Feb 2018, the only penguin we saw was one they brought out for a keeper talk in the lobby mid-afternoon. The stingray touch tank gets an A++! My son (5 years old) kept asking to go back so he could touch the stingrays again! Their octopus is also the friendliest I’ve seen in an aquarium setting. She was on the front glass and moved around quite a bit in the 10 minutes I stood and watched her. She isn’t hyped the way she should be! There was a fair bit of glare on her tank from nearby exhibits, though, which made catching a good picture of her very difficult (her tank is not well lit per normal octopus keeping standards). My son was also a huge fan of their playground - which was really nice and SHADED! Overall, we had a wonderful experience and will definitely visit again the next time we are in the area!
