My family went here and my 4 year old kept walking around saying, "This is so cool!" She enjoyed feeding the turtles and the Koi in their pond. It was not too busy so Brett showed us around and gave us a personal tour. He showed my daughter how to feed the turtles without the Koi interfering and explained how... More

My family visited the aquarium after the kids begged to go in. It was rather small, but enjoyable. The staff was very informative, and knowledgeable on the animals there. They were very friendly. I think it is a little pricey, but since they had made some changes I quess they passed the cost.

"You get what you pay for" sums it best for this aquarium. Very small building, with probably ~15 tanks throughout the entire aquarium. Most of the tanks had only 3-4 fish inside, and most of the sharks in the touch tanks were way too deep to be touched. The gift shop looked to be stocked with crane machine prizes and... More

Nice little aquarium, and right on the boardwalk.Not very big, but worth the $8. Staff was fantastic and knowledgable. My 8 year old loved it! We got to pet a stingray and shark, feed the fish and turtles, and my daughter got to feed an alligator! The monkeys were a strange but awesome addition, super cute!

I recently took my Mom and kids to this aquarium, because after reading reviews I had to check it out for myself. It was really nice!! Didn't smell, was clean and the owner was very pleasant to talk to, you could tell he really cared about his animals. We even got to watch him clean the alligator enclosure. All the... More

The touch tank was great. Wanted to show kids the not all things are scary. For a small place there was a lot to variety to see.
