  • Breeding of sharks, Ocean Sunfish, dolphin shows main attraction? Good doctor fish experience and back-yard tour of some available free of charge. Had been fusenwoo the capybara was impressive. Ministry of food rich in stores genre. What you eat really lost. Incidentally may see nemophila GW, Hitachi toured with Beach Park, but both very crowded. Feel especially, this Aquarium capacity over what was, so this time I have the points were prepared

  • First thing in the morning in the middle of the three-day weekend, I went! Because it had a long line of visitors waiting was going to open from 9 a.m. to me how open 8:30. (* ^. ^ *) Amazing deal. parking is open from early time. If can spend time, even if you arrive early, parking lot next to the beach, so very enjoyable. Hotel smoking is not. Front of the Aquarium entrance is on the right side only (^. ^) y-... o ○ site show fewer students to be as soon as admission restrictions, so in particular going to the holiday should things be lined show taking place as soon as possible.

  • Nice aquarium with a lot of different exhibits. There is a lot of interesting things for smaller kids as well. It does get a little busy during the holidays, but that is to be expected.
  • The aquarium was interesting only because it offers a behind the scenes tour of the facility which offered good insight into how much care these animals need. It's sad because it's obvious that aquariums, zoos, and other places that place animals in captivity is sad and dangerous. I won't be going again to this or any other aquariums.
  • Nice aquarium! Has a dolphin show. Lots of sharks. Some rare sea creatures.
  • Excellent place for children. They will definitely love it. Grown ups will enjoy too. People enjoy dolphin show here. Only negative point is that it is against animal rights.
  • Great aquarium for family outings. There are plenty of activities for children and adults alike.
