“Not worth a Penny.”
Reviewed August 10, 2010

Dont even waste your time or money, you can see more animals at the beach, small is not the word and there a really only fish in this thing they call an aquarium, Granted it is cheap 8 buscks to get in but I would rather gave 16 bucks to a homeless person and spent 45 mins in the john. Stop by the casino and through your money in a slot machine, you will have more fun.

“Pretty good for a small aquarium.”
Reviewed February 17, 2010

I was pleasently surprised by this aquarium. It kills about 1 - 2 hours and is a great place to bring the kids. I went in the winter on a Saturday and the place was dead.

“Stretch your day out here!”
Reviewed November 22, 2009

Pleasantly surprised by this place...yes its small, but our 5 & 12 year olds loved it and spent more time there than I thought they would stand. . Make sure to call ahead to get schedule for feeding time when diver is in tank & when kids can feed & pet the small rays. Nice small gift shop wiht tshirts and other gifts. Staff is very helpful..ask them questionis about creatures in tanks! Tanks are very big and fish are too..LOVE the jellyfish tank! This is in a nice location..take advantage of the picnic area, then scoot over for a dolphin watching cruise (right next door) and then you can have dinner at a pub which is next to that & very modestly priced. There is also a small artisan, crafts-for-sale area to look at, as well as all the boats in the harbor. A old but clean bathroom is right outside. The 3rd story has great view! This is a nice, quiet, family little area. Bring a camera; you can easily make a 1/2 day out of this one area as well as sea wall down the street..
