  • We stopped here during our road trip and had so much fun. The tour was amazing and the show was so funny! I loved how knowledgeable the trainer was and all the information that we got during our visit. My daughter got a kick out of the shark mouth you can pose in. The touch tide pool was also really cool.
  • If you happen to be in the area with your family, this is a great like place to visit. It's not huge but it's we'll run and has some great features. The sea lions are awesome (really well trained) and their little show is fun. They also have a really neat look and touch feature that has several small sharks (can't recall the species) that seem to enjoy being touched so it's a really neat experience. They also have a nice look and touch tide pool attraction with a good variation of creatures. They take people through in groups so you don't feel smothered in people and the guides are really personable.
  • Nice little tour. Would be better if kids were free considering how pricey the adult tickets are. Over all though the seal and sea lion show was great and the guide had lots of info she shared about the various fish they had on display.
  • Fun and interactive with lots of sea creatures to experience. Hands on waist high small pond with sea creatures such as star fish and other sea life that you can touch and pick up. Underground aquarium with unique fish and sharks swimming at eye level. They even have sting rays. Live show with trained seals ready to jump thru hoops and do superb tricks they have learned to keep you entertained. Makes you feel one with the sea and it's many living creatures. They offer a large gift shop inside with a large variety of things to choose from to take home to remember your trip. Nice day trip for a couple or a family.
  • The only reason I'm giving two stars is because my mother and I went to do the tour but found out there were stairs involved, 25 up and 25 down, so my mom wouldn't be able to complete the tour. They did say there was a platform to stand at, but I didn't feel paying the full price justified this, and no discount was mentioned. My mom also has a problem walking ramps, up or down (not sure if they had ramps on the tour) so this just was not a suitable experience for her.
