  • 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.

  • 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.
