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.

To be honest we did not go to this attraction, but we did stand and walk out on the pier immediately to the West of the attraction. We saw so many large noisy sea lions hanging out on the floating docks, it was fantastic. When we reached the end of the dock, be aware that there is no rail on... More

Undersea Gardens, is a lot of fun, and very enjoyable, the show is amazing, with the diver. The Gift Shop is a neat place to shop. Strongly Recommend it.

I rarely give bad reviews but this place was just sad. I regret paying $12 to see a whole lot of nothing. A big gift shop upstairs, and downstairs was dark, hot, and boring. When I paid they said the show would be starting very soon...it never started...I waited. Saw some rough looking fish, a crab. Dark and dismal and... More
