  • I wasn't expecting much from this tank, but he surprised me, very good and with an excellent collection, especially the living waters.

  • We have been twice now. The kids stayed longer when they were younger toddlers. This time they were 7 and 9 and I think We lasted 35-40 minutes. Some neat fish and I like playing with the sand castle ...  more »
  • Nextdoor to Legoland and usually part of your Legoland ticket you can take an educational stroll through the Sea Life Aquarium and learn the ins and outs of special Sea Life.  more »

  • 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.
  • Little costly like the rest. 20 for parking.? Crazy.. Cafe is pretty good. Place is clean. Good place for kids.
  • First visit. Don't expect too much, there are nice tanks with informative touch screens which keeps the kids involved. There's tanks of jelly fish, a small touch pool, and other tanks with smaller random fish. It was a nice end to the day, is it necessary, not really, but a nice addition if you have extra time and $$ cause it's not included in your park entry.
  • This place was more entertaining to our 2 yr old than Legoland was. It was a nice experience. It's educational and she loves all the fish, sharks, jellyfish etc. We got it done in about an hour but it's great. The only down side was no strollers.

Where to stay in Carlsbad

Accommodations in Carlsbad run the gamut from quaint bed and breakfasts to five-star luxury resorts. You can stay in the heart of the action by booking a room downtown, where you'll be near the beach and have access to the city's most popular bars and restaurants. If you've come to town to explore the area's renowned golf and tennis opportunities, look for resorts with excellent facilities in La Costa, a suburban residential neighborhood. If you seek a more rustic experience, take advantage of the city's mild weather and natural surroundings by camping on Carlsbad State Beach.
