This is our 3rd visit to this aquarium - we try to make it down here every few years. The exhibits are great for all ages. You can wander around and see exactly what interests you and check out the live displays, which are divided into separate "zone-like" areas, which makes it easy to go from area to area, depending upon how busy it is. If one area seems busy - maybe you arrived at the advertised feeding time and you'd rather not deal with crowds, you just visit another area and return, without "losing your place". They have a very good docent program, with volunteers situated throughout the aquarium to answer questions and provide info and many have science backgrounds, providing fascinating tidbits of info. The hands-on area is particularly interesting, where you can touch and feel various anenomes, abalones, etc (& have them touch and feel you!) Two small critiques: 1. There are wonderful photographs with accompanying editorial copy, which are often very difficult to read as they are in unlit areas with no spotlights on the written info. 2. Every time we go, we see lost people trying to figure out the entrance signs directing you into the parking lot and where to enter the aquarium. The signage could be improved upon. It's not cheap, but it's a very worthwhile place to visit - always enjoyable.
