    Amazing how many exhibits they have. Many are rescued that had been injured and are now able to survive because they are being taken care of there. That impressed me. Beautiful displays.  more »

    Well made and excellent design in most respects. Gets hot and crowded many days of the week. Has a touch pool that kids will enjoy. Good ages for kids are 7-11 for this site. Older kids that like sea life and science will enjoy as well.

    Monday afternoons! I never get weekdays off often. We went on a Monday @ 3pm with a 11 month old. There was very little people, I got to see everything and with a baby it was so easy to do and took half the time to walk through, so my baby wasn't ever bored waiting or interacting with the fishys.

    I thought it would be a lot bigger but it was still pretty interesting. There's quite a bit to look at, and it's all organized nicely. Very informational as well. I'd recommend purchasing tickets ahead of time. However, the combo experience is really only worth it if you're traveling from a couple hours away and don't plan to return within the 30 day limit.

    Overpriced and overcrowded. My 4yr old son did not enjoy himself because of the large crowds and was not able to see and enjoy everything. I've been to some of the best rated aquariums around Canada and US and their prices are similar. This place should be half off for what they offer in comparison to others.

    Blown away by how it's set up and how many sea life critters they have. Wish it was lil bigger for the price but we all know why. The rays are the best in my opinion. There are stamping stations for the kids to stamp their packet thing. If all stamped, they get a tiny prize at the end. There is a cool coloring deal as the end. Digitally color in one of the critters, send It and it goes up on the projection on the wall with the rest in a VR under sea setting to "come to life". It is worth at least a one time visit.
