  • We visited the aquarium while vacationing on Saint George Island. Since SGI isn't overly developed, we decided to take the kids to this on a red flag day. I'll admit, I didn't know what to expect when...  more »

  • We found a brochure for this place at The Pearl and decided to check it out. It is definitely a hidden gem. There were several open tanks that the kids were encouraged to touch and handle the Marine life. Most of them were set up like various beach environments we've seen here in the state. There were some preserved specimens as well, which my son really liked looking at. There are also many "looking" tanks where the animals could bite, but they are still open to allow visitors to get a close look. The sting ray seemed to enjoy splashing us. There were three sea turtles who were unable to be re-released due to injury in "looking" tanks. It was amazing to get that close to these giants. There were several college aged young people working there and they seemed connected with the animals and were quite friendly with guests. I am really glad we found this place.
  • Everybody enjoyed the time we spent. Well worth the reasonable entry fee.
  • Feeding the Ray is super fun. Lots for kids to touch (even big kids like me). Well worth the price.
  • great place for the kids. plenty to touch and see. if you can watch a feeding, it's even better.
  • It's a very small place, but everything is well maintained, and all the animals are very friendly.
