We went with my brother. It was a good day. For the price I expect more. We are from Puerto Rico. My son playing with a penguin.

It's almost $50 per person to go in. It's pretty crowded. It's small. Go early so you have time to go thru it all carefully. It's pretty small. But fun for kids. The seals are my Fave. Didn't really care for the sting rays. Since everyone and their moms are hurtled around them.

We renewed our annual pass, this is a great place to take the kids! We dress in waterplay clothes and bring a change of clothes and towels. Letting the kids choose the route and pace allows for a wonderful day. Switching it up with interactive hands on exhibits, water play, photo opportunities with "animals" and a lunch break = our...

Came here around 10 am and we were done by 2 pm. The place is small and thank God I bought the tickets at work cuz it only cost me $20 per person. I don't think it's worth the full asking price because the place is small. Monterey bay aquarium is better or you might as well go to sea... More

We love this place! Great for all ages. We took our son who is two and be loved it so much! He loves the interactive exhibits outside and the giant whale when you walk in the front door! He also loved the birds.

Almost didn't come here but so glad we did. The kids loved getting to touch sharks, jelly fish, and sting rays! All of the staff and volunteers we encountered were so nice and knew what they were talking about!!! They actually seemed to like their jobs and enjoy interacting with the visitors!

thought the price was a little high but the sea life seen is great. Enjoyed visiting the aquarium, but if you have been in one aquarium you have been in all.

Thoughtful and educational exhibits and just a great day. Excellent value. I decided to become a member so I can come back and enjoy repeatedly. Must see the otters and play with the sea lions through the windows !

The people at the ticket counter need to get with it. They provided us with false information about how much the whale watching tickets were if purchased at the docks ($55 adult/$40 kids when they were $45/$30). In addition to this, they wouldn't let us upgrade our aquarium ticket (received as a gift) to a combo ticket, even though we... More

Spent the day with some family and had a great time. This particular Aquarium is not as big as the Monterey Aquarium but it is still a great place to visit. Lots of exhibits, lots of sea life, lots of fun. Went on a summer weekday and there was a whole bunch of groups but we got there early enough... More
