  • This was an unexpected treat. We stumble apon the aquarium. We were given a guided tour by a very knowledgeable guide. We spent an enjoyable 2 hours on a rainy day.
  • 3 star just for the price. $28 per adult and if child 3 years old $20. Limited shows in offseason time and the same price.
  • Had one of the best days there ever. It's so cool to see all the animals there including Penguins and the little monkeys they have there. To see the exhibit and its beautiful surroundings breathtaking I must to bring your kids
  • I went here for the day with my 2 nephews, they were so excited and for good reason! We spent 6 hours there making sure we saw as much as we could. The butterfly area was my favorite but they loved the touch tanks where they could feed sting rays and pet them.
  • I love this place cause it has alot of sea creatures and it has alot of animals and insects,also birds.They are so beautiful to look at
