    Since 1981, I am going to the marine shows. This site is one of the most serious, in the research and conservation of the sea. Made with programs that millions of people see these species, with intelligence, beautiful and able to work with the man. Trucks collide and killed people, then no more cars, the aoviones, trains, ships the same. I sometimes think that these ecological movements man, mind a cumin because as it is intelligent it can oppose their exaggerations. If you lose interest in the marine species, we are going to go wrong. So this for many reasons is a must-see Park, if you can.

    I didn't find this aquarium to be nothing special. And for the price to get in i was expecting more. I have been to many aquariums so i have experience. There is nothing wrong with the aquarium but i didn't find anything here that made me say wow. Kids will love it but if for adults there is not much to see. One thing that would be nice to see here is some touch tanks for the kids. Like i said i have been to many aquariums and did not find this one to be amazing. If this is your first aquarium you will love it. I would like to add the staff were incredibly friendly and the gift shop prices were actually reasonable.

    We went here on a rainy day as something to do and it was enjoyable. The parking is limited to two hours but you only need an hour to walk round the aquarium so you have time to explore the area - there are places to eat, a Ben and Jerry's and a skeleton shop/museum. This is a relatively small aquarium so prepare to be disappointed if you're expecting something big and impressive. There is a nice variety of species and it's nice to see that they do work with charity groups to improve conservation and rescue animals. This place is great for kids - there are educational talks, interactive areas where kids can touch starfishes, information boards and also some sort of activity trail that kids can do on their way round. It is very expensive for what it is. An adult ticket was $27.50 and in my opinion not worth it for how small it is. But if you have kids then it's something fun for them to do. The shop is cute with some nice gifts.

    Great experience. There were so many kinds of fish and the stamp hunt was fun and interactive. The staff was very knowledgeable about the fish and sea life and answered all our questions. The gift shop is well priced compared to many others.

    Great aquarium for the small footprint. Well done and very hands on. It's a little pricey - we bought tickets online to save a few bucks. If you need a place to spend 2 hours - We'd recommend it.

    The aquirium is amazing. Quite small but amazing. Many things for kids to do. Such as climbing under into a ball that shows them the whole tank inside. Very informational as well for those who don't only like looking. Overall it's small but has plenty of fish and is built very nicely.

Where to stay in Orlando

Orlando is famous for its high concentration of budget, mid-range, and luxury hotels. The city caters to every tourist's needs, with accommodations ranging from inexpensive hostels and motels to five-star resorts and lavish private villas. Orlando is a busy city all year long, so plan ahead and book your stay well in advance. To avoid the crowds of the big theme parks, consider renting a vacation house or condo just outside the city, or explore one of the area's campgrounds or RV resorts.
