  • Took my six year old son here and we both enjoyed it. We had a great time here. It is a bit pricey for how small it is. 
  • We were in the area for a charity walk and had wanted to visit the aquarium since it opened. We prepurchased tickets online for a slight discount. Staff was very helpful and courteous. The Aquarium it...  read more »
  • We went during Toddler Time and received discount tickets. The aquarium has a lot of great exhibits and you can get up close and personal with the sea life. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeabl...  read more »
  • My husband and I went during a slow time and had a fantastic experience. I think that not dealing with crowds was a large part of what made it so good, so if you can go early afternoon on a weekday, do it! We took our time to enjoy watching every area, and spent the most time at the tank where the stingrays would get swimming so fast that they'd almost pop up out of the water! Staff was very friendly and informative, especially at the touch tank. I've been reading a lot of negative reviews from people who said there's only 30 minutes of entertainment. We were there for about 90 minutes enjoying everything! Like all zoo/aquarium experiences it's what you make of it. If you just glance at an exhibit for a minute before continuing to the next, of course it's going to be a short experience. However, if you're an animal lover and enjoy watching each habitat for an extended amount of time, then you're going to have a more fulfilling experience.
  • I would not recommend coming unless you're willing to pay $24 per person to get through the entire place in 20 minutes. We drove 2 hours to come to the aquarium thinking it would be something worth the 2 hr drive. We were lucky a nice gentlemen offered us a coupon for a free child admission coming in or we would have paid $60 for 2 adults and a child for walking through in just a short amount of time.The only thing we saw were fish fish fish and more fish with a few sharks that were not very large either. All n all I would not recommend this place..
  • Took my kids here as a birthday present and mini Summer vacation. The kids had a great time. The sea life was beautiful. I had hoped the place was a little bigger but overall had a great time.
  • This place is great and I am so tired of the complaints of pricing and lines. First off, they RESCUE animals. Do you even know how much money goes into rescuing wildlife? So stop complaining and consider the fact that your money is well spent and will help rescue efforts in the future, with little effort on your part. Second, they clearly show on the website what their busy times are so if you can avoid them, do, if you cannot avoid the high traffic times, get your tickets online. I loved the different fish that I was able to see, the way they make the aquariums really help magnify some of the fish. The staff was well informed and friendly, I felt very comfortable there and will definitely go again when winter hits.
  • I took my 5 yr old grandson. He hated it. I thought it was beautiful, but overpriced. I was disappointed because the amount of money you spend . you do not get anything exciting for it... They need to lower there prices... I walked thru in all of 15min... I would never go back there ! Neither will I ever refer anyone to go! Unless prices where $10 cheaper.
