Ok - If you buy the pack of three attractions in Newport this would be your best bet. My BF said that he'd pay $12.00 to see the wolf eel, sturgeon and the crabs. It's small, hot and you have to wait to see the diver which we didn't and didn't feel we needed to. It was peaceful in a... More

I drove 8 hours to see under sea garden and well the customer service is five star, but the all the fish look dead. The combo ticket is a great deal I recommend buying them from Drew or Stuart. The gift shop has some dirty deals. Overall this place not worth your money.

One thing that really stuck out for me was the scuba diver. I liked how he held up animals. And I really enjoyed the information that was given about the animals. There's a chance I might visit again but probably not for awhile. I would like to see more animals in there.

Had some cool marine life. My kids enjoyed it. I recommend visiting Undersea Gardens before the Aquarium.

Wow, this is really run down and un-entertaining. It's basically a big gift shop with a large tank in the "basement". It's dark, dingy. Not much to see - you could walk the perimeter in under a minute, and we only spent about 2-3 minutes down there. Kind of pointless, too, since there's a REAL aquarium just across the bridge...
