  • The aquarium is great! I was very impressed with how well done it is and there is a great variety of exhibits and activities and I think it's a very reasonable price. A great place for locals or tourists to have on their "Must Do" lists. Never forget to explore the gems in your own city!
  • This place is amazing! The tunnel was really cool, watching the fish and other sea life almost fly around me was spectacular. From the upper level view of the tunnel, you can see quite a few of the larger fish like sharks swimming below, against a beautifully painted background. The staff were very knowledgeable and friendly. The displays are brief, informative, and clear for viewing the fish and understanding them. I really enjoyed the interactive areas and touching the stingrays, Horse shoe crabs, and also the sand sharks (I think). There is also a food court inside with a variety of options and is situated surrounded by quite a few small aquariums. Visitors can also reserve a party room to host birthdays and other special occasions. This place is definitely a must-see!
  • Amazing exhibit. Very happy with what I saw! However, I purchased the date night tickets and we had an extremely hard time seeing the aqarium as so many children were running around and screaming very loudly. Would be extremely nice if the aquarium offered an adults night only where there wasn't kids screaming and yelling as you're trying to watch. On that note, it is a great place for kids to learn. But adults need to learn too!
  • My daughters (6&3) loved the aquarium when we visited last year and have been clamouring to return ever since. The music as you walk through is calming and the fish are fascinating. It is definitely worth a leisurely 2+ hour stroll through the exhibits. Much can be learned about marine life as well. Some exhibits are changed as well, to make return trips worthwhile. We loved our second visit and will be sure to return again next year!
  • Went here a couple of weekends ago with friends. Had loads of fun. They have a sort of glass bowl you can go under and it appears as if you are inside the aquarium amongst the fish, can get some pretty decent pics. Not overly crowded, good place to kill 2-3 hours learning something interesting.
