  • Very nice atmosphere and very unique way of teaching people about the different fish and plant life in each exhibit. The aquarium is obviously not set up to be busy, so I am glad my family and I went on a slow day. The aquarium, while nice, has way too many cons for me to recommend it. They play the same, beautiful and atmospheric, instrumental song on loop. I found myself getting tired of it very quick. There were also practically no seats in there (also bad if it were to get busy). Also, the axolotl exhibit area needs an expansion; it was very cramped in the area and seeing how there were only three other people there, that is saying something. There was a very small number of species in there and limited the aquatic life to a few type of fish, about two-three sting ray, two turtles, and a small shark. All together it took us, keeping track of time, 35 minutes to get through the small aquarium in which we stopped at every exhibit reading the information and taking pictures of the sea life. At the cost of 25 dollars each person I can safely say that, while it was amusing, it was not worth it. Don't go in expecting to see other sea life such as otters, crocodiles, and alike. However, for those who don't mind spending that money for the short experience, go for it. I found the atmosphere, as stated above, to be very nice compared to other aquariums I have been to.
  • My family and I enjoyed our trip to Sea Life Orlando on 3/5/18. I came mostly for business but was able to put a few days aside for time with my family. All of the staff were friendly and seemed to truly care about and love their jobs. My children loved all the animals at SL and convinced me to go on the Behind the Scenes tour they offer for $5. Our tour guide Honor was very informative, cheerful and made sure to keep my children involved while they loved. I would highly recommend the Behind the Scenes tour and if you go, ask for Honor. We can't wait to come back next year.
  • Surprisingly excellent aquarium, complete with a glass tunnel to walk "through" a large tank. The building doesn't look huge, but there was so much to see and do. Very interactive and uniquely presented. You won't find yourself getting bored here.
  • For a smallish type aquarium, this place is done really well. The exhibits are well made and the displays are very creative. Your won't find much exotic sea life here, but what you do see looks very well. You can spend 1-2 hours here. With a discount, it's worth it.
  • A bit on the smaller side for an aquarium, but the staff always seems very knowledgeable and friendly. My son and I have annual passes to the aquarium here and go somewhat often, he loves looking at all the different exhibits and the interactive learning centers, although his favorite area by far is the petting area, mine is the 360 degree glass area where you can see sea life all around you. And I love all of their picture opportunities.
