  • It is a smaller aquarium but has fun exhibits for kids of all ages. I wouldn’t plan on spending more than an hour or two here though!  more »
  • Fun for kids but no more because is not worth the Britch of Jolla or SeaWorld SanDiego...

  • Don’t miss it! We saw it as we were leaving and there were many floors of exhibits. Kids loved the touch tank.  more »

  • Did not expect this with our Legoland pass but was pleasantly surprised! Lots of different fish, jellyfish, sharks to see and interactive exhibits for all ages!! Started off with a great video on protecting sea life and oceans, followed by a slide for the kiddos over fish tanks! Really enjoyed the jellyfish exhibit and the feel the sea area. I would definitely check this out!!
  • This is definitely the best part of going to Legoland and one of the best attractions in Southern California. I always look forward to it. I have learned something new and exciting every time I have gone because the staff is so knowledgeable and goes out of their way to educate everyone that comes through with a smile and enthusiasm . you can tell they love what they do and they want to make it a great experience for everyone that comes. I tell everyone I meet that it is well worth their time and investment to go. My seven-year-old daughter and I have an even greater love for the ocean and all things ocean because of Sea Life Aquarium. Now going to tide pools or checking out the Jetties at low tide is fascinating because of our new knowledge. Plus my little one not only has major respect before the organisms and creatures, but she tries to pass it along to other kids and we have been known to rescue some sidewinding crabs and other Critters from not so knowledgeable or caring visitors and tourists. A big thank you and Round of Applause to Sea Life Aquarium and everyone who works there! Homeschooling has never been so fun ! Oh! And they are all about breeding and rescuing and protecting and all that good stuff too!
  • Our family enjoyed strolling through on a rainy San Diego day. It was a good visit and we were glad the we had a two-day hopper pass that gave us access to Sea Life Aquarium and LEGOLAND. But we wouldn’t choose to head the this aquarium on a sunny day or to add additional costs onto our LEGOLAND ticket to do so.
  • Really small aquarium, with fish tanks that look like they don’t get cleaned often. The jellyfish tank was cool. Was included in my 2 day Legoland hopper pass that I bought through a discount program offered by my employer via ticketsatwork, so m happy that I did not pay for it. If you’ve seen any aquarium anywhere, you can safely skip this one.
  • Nice sized aquarium to visit after a day at Legoland. Lots of educational fun for the young ones. Not too big and not too small. Especially on hot days save this one for last.
