  • I have been coming here with my eldest daughter since the day she was born as a place for dad and daughter time and now that I have my second daughter we both come here together as a thing that Dad in the girls to do together. Yes it's small yes there's not that much attractions but you know what it's an aquarium on the boardwalk what are you people expecting it's nice enough to Jenkinson's is saving these animals giving them refuge and on top of that making sure that they're treated the best they can be over all. If you listen to them and read the exhibits you can tell and see that some of these animals cannot be released into the wild after being kept captive or rescued in the first place just like two seals. Their one seal passed away and let me tell you my daughter knew about it and she's very upset but yeah Jenkinson's was nice enough to give a farewell to her and let everyone know how love that seal was. I will continue coming here as long as my daughters want to and as long as they're open to the public we will always be loyal customers of Jenkinson's Aquarium.
  • Its a nice aquarium. Lots of cool marine life as well as local wildlife. Conveniently located on the board walk.
  • The staff was kind, facility clean, but it isn't too large. Perfect for a quick stop for an hour or 2 but a littoe too much money for what was there. Would be 5 stars if not for that.
  • Always an amazing time here. It's a small aquarium but they make use of the space very well. It's clean and the staff is super helpful and friendly.
  • Fun aquarium. Knowledgeable staff and easy access for kids to view. My kids loved the touch tank!
