I will say if you buy your tickets on line you can save a few $. I did NOT like that you had to pick an Exact time to show up & IF you're Late you forfeit your tickets and All $$ paid !
When we arrived we were directed to park in a parking lot that also had another building and we were cutting it tight on time. The building we went to was a restaurant on the opposite side of the big parking lot and the valet guy out front said, you have to go Way over to the blue and white building at the opposite end and we had to leave our parking spot to drive to the very opposite end.
When we arrived there was no signage or any one directing you where to go, but finally we asked and got directions. When we got to check in, I asked the lady where does to tour or presentation start because we were told to be here by 12:00 pm or we would forfeit . The lady at check in says " Oh there's really no presentation or any organized tour, we just say that to stagger our guest flow " .
I thought what terrible dam liars because we had rushed our entire trip and even skipped lunch !!!! As in other reviews the place wasn't the cleanest and everything seemed unorganized with No map or directions to anything !
I'm from Orlando and there we have all the top theme parks in the world and Sea World as well ! I will say these guys need to go to Sea World to learn how to handle groups of people.
I'm a Senior Reviewer on Trip Adviser and can see Clearwater Aquarium DOESN'T bother to reply to reviews as other top companies will do, which means they DO NOT CARE !
Adult tickets on line are $17.95 and I can say, it would have been a fair price IF the Aquarium was managed properly, but they might need LESSONS. It was a Disappointing Experience !!!!
