Thought I would just see fish in a tank. Yes, the first tank had fish, turtles, crab, starfish and other things, and you could pick them up or touch them. The large tank with sharks and other fish was interesting but the best part was the sting ray and shark feeding we got to do. It was a weekday before... More

We love animals so when we saw there was an aquarium...we were there! It is family owned and on the small side, but that is what makes it great. It isn't swarming with ankle bitters like other places. The people who work there are enthusiastic and eager to show you animals and tell you about them. They have shows throughout... More

Looking at the outside of the building and the size, we went in - not expecting a lot. It was wonderful. Packs so much into not a huge amount of space. Different times for feedings and the staff will go around and make sure everyone knows when they will be starting so you don't miss anything. Denise did a wonderful... More

...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.
