I was very disappointed with this. I got all three places for low price. If I had to pay for this I would not be happy. It is neat to see the fish but expected more

This is the worst type of tourist trap -and I repeat this for Wax Works and Ripley's. I, like a fool, bought the Groupon without doing a little research. 15 min max at each 'attraction'. I'm not expecting anything on par with some of the larger cities but the time could be better spent at the Oregon Aquarium. We watched... More

You get what you pay for ! It's cheap to get in, has a good sized gift shop and downstairs is cool ! You get to see many different kinds of marine life in a cool reef, and a show which involves a diver swimming about and showing you a bit more about them ! Can't knock it at all.... More

Too much $$$. If you just have to see it, go when there is a show with the scuba diver. I had to force my kids to stay down there to see everything just so I got a little bit of my money's worth. The show was only about 10 minutes. $11 adults and $6 kids

It's kind of like walking inside an aquarium and looking out. We found this attraction very small and not worth the fee to explore the "undersea gardens."

The only thing worth seeing is the show that happens every so often. The kids get a kick out of it and you can learn some neat facts. Other then that, it's pretty much a boring fish tank.

If you want to walk through a fish tank, this is for you. The price was rediculous for the attraction. I highly recommend skipping this event. Go to the aquarium instead!

the undersea gardens are small and not worth going to see unless you see the show. a diver goes in and handles some of the creatures while a worker tells you about them. the wolf eels really interact. without this though it is alot of rock fish who just sit around and not alot to keep a person engaged. the...

I've been here a couple times and it's not a bad place to check out. I recommend it for younger kids, it's not too exciting for adults really. There's a diver and you can see all the sea creatures up close. The dock where you can watch the sea lions is more enjoyable for me, it's funny watching them interact.
