“First Time Visit”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

I recently visited the Seaport Aquarium. The owner, Brent, took us on a very informative and pleasant tour. He was visibly passionate and caring for all the wonderful creatures that he has on display. A great destination for kids, families, schools etc....

“Very good for the size”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

This aquarium is very small but that lends itself to very good animal photography. The new owner gave us a private tour since we were probably the first people in for the day. He is knowledgeable and obviously interested in the animals' welfare. Marmosets are charming.

“Awesome”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

Stopped in here with my wife and son and had a great time for $14. Staff went out of their way to make sure my 3 year old had a good time. They even made the alligators move for him. Great experience.

“A worthwhile experience in every aspect”
Reviewed June 13, 2014 via mobile

Going into this aquarium with no knowledge of the negativity it seems to have received in the past, I was really impressed and pleased with the value, staff and experience. The animals were all friendly and it was obvious that they are well cared for. The new management seems to be making a world of difference and deserves a chance to continue towards success. They do very well with the amount of space they have and are willing to talk to each customer to ensure that they feel welcome and informed. I went with my sister and mother and did not feel rushed in any sense. For the fact that most boardwalk attractions seem to want money at every turn, the prices such as 3$ to feed the piranhas and the 7$ admission are reasonable and a welcome change. I would definitely recommend this aquarium to anyone looking for a fun and educational activity!

“Very pleased with the experience”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

For having passed this aquarium on the boardwalk for many years I'm glad we decided to check it out. The place is very neat and much more than you would expect. For the low cost and pleasant experience it is worth stopping in. The aquarium is recently under new ownership and the new owners seem to be doing a great job trying to build the place back up.
