Worth an hour visit. The kids loved the seals the most...especially when they splashed Dad. Oldest daughter liked the hands on tidal pool exhibit more than the Monteray Aquarium which we eventually went to on this trip. Good job. Baby octopus was very cool to see. Quite a variety for a small aquarium.

Nice little aquarium, had a good time feeding the seals. Nice little exhibits to look over, loved their etching table where the kids and adults can make etchings of the exhibits. They had a baby octopus on display at the touch pools it was fun to look at, also had a few big octopuses to look at as well. Wasn't... More

This was fun for the 10 year old even though we had been to the Newport Aquarium 2 days before. Feeding the seals was and is always fun to do and to watch.

Our entire family, three generations, visited and had just a super time despite the cold and rain. When you can see sea animals being feed, you forget to be cold. The grandchildren loved every part. The place is also beautifully landscaped.

A very dated attraction, probably not overpriced for the experience. Really some fun for the kids, as they have an area where they can touch and get a little wet. It is worth exploring if your expectations are not too high.

The aquarium has tons of history and interesting stories. The staff are very friendly and has a feel of being family owned. The seals are the main attractions!! You can purchase little cups of fish to feed the seals for a dollar. It's so much fun! My family and I had a blast. We will be back.
