  • The boardwalk and town were basically closed the Columbus Weekend so we went here. It was super clean in the tanks, etc., and some really great exhibits although it only took an hour to see everything...  read more »
  • We visited in October and it was not crowded at all. It's a nice little place that had just enough to do for my toddler. We were there about am hour. It's definitely worth the visit especially since y...  read more »
  • Always a relaxing time here, the place is fun, clean, and afforadable for a family group. The staff is very knowledgable and pleasant. 
  • This aquarium has been my favorite since I was a kid. I definitely think it's worth the price. There is a wide variety of aquatic animals. My personal favorites are the penguins and sharks. They also have two seals and a small petting area where you can touch a couple of the smaller animals. The staff are friendly, well-educated, and willing to answer any question you might have.
  • Small and simple. A little expensive for the size (it's pretty small compared to most aquariums), but they have a lot of fish. It's also very creative. If you go there at the beginning of March, they have Dr. Seuss displays and activities to celebrate said author. There's penguins and sea lions which are cool, and it should entertain the kids. I feel an addition to the small aquarium would be a tad better, but overall a very good aquarium
  • We were surprised at the amount and unique variety of the exhibits. Looked small from the outside, but packed with creatures. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the animals.
  • The aquarium is small. I think it's $11-13 for adult and children under 3 is free. For a small aquarium it's expensive. We literally finish the tour in an hr. The parking is $20 a day which it's only worth it if u will spend time on the boardwalk and beach. The only plus side in the aquarium is they give u a stamp so u can go in and out all day. That's helpful when it's 80+°F outside and this place has a.c. They have sharks, seals and penguins and u can touch the stingrays. But again it's a small place and they don't offer shows like some others.
  • This was a super cute little aquarium with many unique animals I have not seen elsewhere. It's small enough to get through quickly as a break from the beach. But there is enough there to make the entrance fee worthwhile. The penguins are adorable!
