  • My 7 and 10 year old grandchildren didn't want to leave! The touch pool and presentation on how to catch lobsters fascinated them. 
  • Perfect day trip for families. The small aquarium is packed with fascinating local creatures. The opportunity to pet a shark is always a hit with the kids.
  • Saw and learned about aquatics. Got to actually touch sea life including sharks. Saw 2 albino lobsters
  • Very small but excellent aquarium that shows off the local marine wildlife very well. The main attraction is a huge touch tank with crabs, snails,lobsters, starfish that you can hold. It will not take very long to see everything at the aquarium, but it is all very well presented.
  • This would be good for small kids, but it's quite underwhelming to visit as an adult. Admission is going to a very good cause though, so it's hard to complain too much.
  • Kinda disappointing not what expected
