We stumbled across the aquarium whilst shopping. We got an amazing deal to swim with the Dolphins including a foot push, all in all we had 45 mins in the water with these amazing animals. For anyone who has a fear about open deep water this is the perfect place to have the dolphin experience. Around the sides of the... More

The only reason we went to the Aquarium was to swim with dolphins. That was great and totally worth the money; however the rest of the place was nothing I would spend money on. We have been to many aquariums in Florida and Texas and they were great. This one was very small and just ok.

The kids loved it here and they got to get in the tank to feed the sharks. You can also swim with the dolphins here as well. Overall great experience.

Small aquarium. Was nice. Didn't spend for the dolphin or shark experiences. Those were very expensive. I would plan 1-2 hours. Not very big.

We decided to visit this aquarium since we had lunch nearby. I believe we paid $28 for two adults. The aquarium is nice, however, it is extremely small. You can get through the entire place in under 30 minutes (we did it in 20). You can pay $16 more per person to see a shark exhibit and the aquarium also... More

My son and I did this at the La Isla mall at the aquarium. It was great. We just did the ride...but we learned lots of great facts and got to pet the dolphin and do tricks. We got the deal for $85 per person which was a deal and completely worth it.
