Waste of money

The experience rated a 5 for sure. Saw some bad reviews about facility. It is an old structure and a little tired BUT the exhibits the shows the people are fantastic. My grand daughter loves dolphins. We have been to other exhibits and this was equal to all. Loved every minute and highly recommend!

What’s to see?
Sep 2021 • Couples
Dated and in disrepair. Under construction Exhibits either closed or half closed. Main attraction closed ( the whale). If you want to pay more and see less, this is your place. If you want to see little men with hammers pretending to fix things, this is your place. If you want an old building to fall on your head, this might just be your place. If you want to see Sea Animals, this is hardly your place.

See animal torture first hand, teach your kids how vile humans can be.

Unbelievable to see how this 'institution' (or butcher shop) is mistreating the animals, keeping them exposed on the sun, hurting eyes, dolphins dying and a whale suffering as much as what you saw on BlackFish, the documentary

A deathcamp for animals, a shame for humans.

Horrendous
Sep 2021 • Family
You can’t ignore the heartbreak of seeing Manatees scorching in a tiny tank. We arrived annoyed at the protestors at the gate and left wanting to join them. Aside from the moral issues the place raise it’s dated and dirty. The food offerings are dire and the presentations amateurish. Enough already! The ticket price of $180 would be better spent on finding the campaign to get this place closed down.

Worst seaquarium
May 2021 • Couples
The worst seaquarium we have ever visited! Very poor basic hygiene standards, animals are held in exceptionally small tanks, do not waste your money here

Not a great experience
Oct 2020 • Family
Visiting this aquarium left a really bad taste in my mouth. They’re holding the oldest captive orca in the world in a tank that appears too small from her. After some quick “googling” I found her enclosure partner had died in the 80’s due to an aneurysm (per reports from hitting his head against the glass). Orcas are social, feeling, mammals. Hopefully people become more aware of the treatment happening to this orca so she can at least spend some of her life in an appropriate sized enclosure. If you’ve been, you’ll recall the signs directing visitors not to video or take pictures of her. Visiting this aquarium made my family and I feel that we were contributing to the suffering of such a beautiful creature. I just wish i had known these things before we visited.

Animal Torture
Aug 2021
These animals were stolen from the wild and should be returned if possible. Imagine if YOU were stolen from your family 51 years ago and forced to perform tricks and live in isolation with no room for real movement under a hot sun!? For anyone who wants to experience marine life, go swim out in the ocean!

DONT GO
Aug 2021 • Friends
Not worth the money at all. Been to aquariums much cheaper than this with a lot more to offer. We left 45 minutes after arriving.

I am downright disgusted by this establishment. I came here with my niece for her birthday this month, hoping to have a nice time and see the animals, since she loves dolphins and whales. When we entered, for one it was the dingiest place I’ve seen in years, the ground was covered in trash, the place was dusty, dirty, and just looked run down. The animals were nowhere to be seen, except for a few turtles in the back, and when trying to enter a show we had bought tickets for, we were turned away. Even all the food vendors were either closed down or looked unsafe to our health. We left disappointed and disgusted. Definitely do not recommend coming here, I know we will never be back again.
