...very rough. We have visited this spot several times over the years. While still fun, upkeep has slipped some and the variety of fish has decreased as well. Regardless, I could still spend hours just feeding the rays...it's a unique experience and worth the admission price alone. The staff is energetic and knowledgeable with ready answers for any questions you... More

I did not want to spend $25-$30 to go to a big aquarium, especially considering my kids are 9 and 5. I am so glad I found this one! It was only $7 for adults and $5 for children with a coupon I found. We actually spent 3 hours there! They dive with the sharks and feed them, they feed... More

Great dive show. Better than the show at Ripleys Aquariums I have visited. Also a nice variety of pythons and boas. Easily worth the price of admission.

I had to agree some w/the writer who was saddened that they're not 'helping' the animals as much as putting them on display. it's a small town but very well meaning aquarium, a little bit of a step back in time, w/quite a few young staff who know their stuff. price is pretty nominal and it's a nice cool (literally)...

It is small, it doesn't have a ton of variety, but the people were great. Very knowledgeable and very friendly. Be sure to be there for the feedings. Very fun for kids. Relatively cheap.

We went there and they pump in the water from the Gulf. It's a small aquarium, perhaps family run, but the tanks are great and it's worth the visit. My husband was a commercial diver for 20 years, and he usually remarks on the health of the fish in the tanks. At other more expansive places, he has told me... More

i like the aquarium and its small. you'll see small gators, snakes, and fish, there are also rays that you can touch. thats about all you expect to find and you wont be disappointed. prices for the attraction are to high for the minimal attraction

The highlight of this aquarium was being able to feed the rays and the sharks food! Well worth the nominal extra cost. The staff is very knowledgeable and we learned things here that we had not learned at other larger aquariums. A great little gem, right on the docks!
