  • Although small my daughter and I enjoyed our time. I Enjoyed how informative they were about the fish, they actually kept both our attention and we both loved the tank where you can touch the fish.
  • We got to pet sharks and lots of other sea creatures. So glad we were referred to the place. Great for kids.
  • My kids love this place people are alway nice been going here for a few years. It's small but very fun for the kids.
  • So cool!! My son was extremely excited about the shark. Everyone was kind and extremely knowledgeable.. def returning!
  • I came here for a quick trip from Providence to get away and enjoy a magnificent day with my partner. We loved the service and attention of the staff here. We learned so much even as adults. It is small, but there are so many cool things to discover about our next door neighbors in the sea right here in R.I. Definitely a great place to spend an hour or so with the kids or just on a date around town. You can also after the aquarium, head to the beach and enjoy of a swim, if it is hot enough, or walk around, pick up many pretty shells, and enjoy the views if it is not.
