Not bad but not nearly what I was expecting. The shark tank is definitely the high light but... I was expecting more I guess..

I am sorry you did not find what you were expecting. We will have the new South Pacific Reef exhibit open late summer 2018 which might peak your interest. We also have daily feedings and other aquatic shows listed on the calendar on the website.

This was pretty nice and interesting. Lots for children to do. Very clean and well kept. The feedings were fun to watch. Kept a 5 year old interested. Loved the shark tank. I could have stayed in there for hours just watching them swim by.

Typically, we only allow ice chests/outside food for reserved group/field trips. However, your admission is good from open to close. So if you would like to go and have a family picnic, you can still re enter the Aquarium!
