  • This place is okay, but I was particularly disturbed by the lack of staff oversight at the "petting pools." I noticed children trying to pick up the rays and sharks, poke at them and generally abuse t...  more »

  • Great Habitats, providing Proper elements that the Species would be in while in Nature. Which in turn helps lessen the load of Stress put on that specific species, which stress is one of the leading factors of an early demise to that animal. So providing Proper habitat, nice areas which they can feel safe in also helping lessen stress load. Come a long way in Management and exhibits. I give it a Rock'n Thumbs UP Folks. Nice work!!
  • Went here for the first time this week with my 3 year old and we had a blast! She was so excited to pet all if the "Mr. Ray's" and loved feeding the birds. It's a pretty small aquarium though that's a plus if you have young kids. The staff is friendly and there is lots to see and do. We will be back.
  • This is a fun place. It is a small aquarium and not like the ones you will find in big cities. It does get hot and humid so dress in a layer you can peel off. It is not worth it to pay to feed the birds unless it is early in the day. Enjoy petting sting rays.
  • It is a little small but it is fun. My kiddo loved it and we took a friend. There is a spot where you can pet bamboo sharks and California bat stingrays. You can also participate in feeding the fish. The first time we went we were able to hold one of the lizards.
  • I had never had a chance to feed stingrays by hand, but this was a very fun experience. We went with friends and the size was a little smaller than I thought it was going to be but they still had a number of great attractions that I could see quite closely and in many cases I could touch which made the experience all the funner. I definitely recommend bringing young kids and anyone with a love animals
