There are many animals to look at - penguins, coral fish, sharks, beluga whales, etc. There is a presentation that's very good also. The food is good here. The gift shop is so much fun to look through!!

This was a nice aquarium but not as many animals as would have liked. The beluga whales were awesome!

My oldest son and I really enjoyed this aquarium. It was small enough to walk around without feeling exhausted going from one exhibit to another. They have some amazing sea life on exhibit and the employees are very helpful and friendly. My favorite part was the beluga whales and the sea lions. They were trult fun to watch and I could have stayed all day. Even though smalI, it is a very enjoyable atraction, but needs to have better directions as to where some of the exhibits are located.

As we entered the Aquarium--we were hurled right into a photo op. It was a very hot day- it was a navigating through the Aquairum as their people walking in both directions-not to mention the strollers blocking the walkways to exhibits. My husband was hit the ankle several times with people pushing strollers. There was no organization what so ever. So we decided to see the Seal show. We walked up several stairs to get to the top--plus there was no air conditiong & it was 92 degrees that day. When the show started then the air conditioning went on. The show was a dissapoint as well--the female MC has a lot be desired-not only could you not understand a word she said-but she strutted like she was the show. We watched the seals catch a ball-play with ball & jump up to touch the red ball hanging from the ceiling. The show was about 30 minutes long. The bathrooms were filthy-baby diapers on the floor--the toilets weren't flushed-no toilet paper . That was my first and last visit.

Nice place. They had sponge bob 4D during our visit. Short multi-sensory funny show. touch tank was an experience, hand sanitizers available. Good variety of fish from 7 continents,jellyfish, shellfish. outside even better when u see the white belugas and penguins. Didn't see the sea lion show. Food is good too fresh clam chowder soup.
