Our 3 year old and 6 year old really enjoyed themselves here. We arrived just prior to 3pm and waited until 3pm because after 3pm the 6pm dolphin/sea lion show is included in the price of admission (about $15US each). The aquarium is pretty small, and we did end up "killing time" at the restaurant while waiting for the dolphin... More

It was very interesting for me and my son to see exotic fishes, to touch skates and seals, but most of all we liked to swim with dolphins!

We took our 8 year old daughter to the aquarium and watched the dolphin show. The show was great and the sting rays were awesome.

This Aquarium has been around for quite a long time and it meets your expectations to see the Caribbean fauna as well as the turtles and dolphins. There is also a restaurant that serves nice seafood while you see the dolphins from above. Enjoy

This was our 4th return to the aquarium, and we really enjoyed it. The shark feeding isn't as fun as before, but the price has dropped from about $85 to $35. The big difference is that the guide feeds the shark instead of the guest.

Very well done, small aquarium, not too busy. We booked for 3 for the interactive experience with the sea lion. We fed him, shared his pool, he even kissed us on the cheek! This was very private, without an audience and a highlight of the trip.
